Back in 2014, in Tokyo, a group of around 30 engineers, including Toyota employees, started to develop ‘SkyDrive’ flying car.
The head of the group, Tsubasa Nakamura, said that the group expects to conduct the first manned-flight by the end of 2018 as the aim is to have the car ready for the 2020 Olympic games in Tokyo to drive/fly in and light the torch.
During the demonstration, the current test model was able to lift off the ground and float in the air for a few seconds, it then looses balance and crashes. The design needs more stability to be able to get the car high enough and fly for a longer amount of time to reach the Olympic flame!
