One of the more unique items on display at this year’s AUVSI XPONENTIALshow at Chicago’s McCormick Place was this prototype of a one-man quad-copter from ElectraFlyfor the very brave at heart.

Billed as a “single person hybrid electric Vertical Take-Off and Landing (VTOL) multicopter that will be used as a hover or personal flying device,” the ElectraFlyer’s four horizontal electric propellers don’t generate enough vertical thrust to lift the 34 kg vehicle and passenger, so it also has a small jet turbine engine that generates 27 kgs of thrust!

And you think riding your Harley Davidson is exciting?
