There is a new ready-to-fly, DIY vehicle on the market: Jetson One is a single-person, DIY eVTOL with eight motors that can fly and land anywhere. Although the price is high, if you are a flying fanatic, this personal eVTOL is unquestionably less expensive than purchasing a plane. And the nicest thing is that there is no requirement for a runway.

Jetson One is a 190-pound (86-kg) eVTOL that measures 9.3 x 7.8 x 3.3 feet (2840 x 2400 x 1030 mm) in flight and folds neatly into a three-foot package for storage. The body of the vehicle is built of carbon and aluminum fiber, and it is driven by eight strong electric motors arranged co-axially on four arms. The overall power output of these motors is 88 kW, however, the company limits the flight speed to 63 mph (103 km/h) using software. The flight controls are basic, with a throttle lever and a three-axis joystick, so you can learn to fly it quickly.
