There was an important step missing in the development of this vehicle. As Laurence Olivier would say, “Is it safe?”
Lets see; A wingless airplane on skis on a frozen lake. Not much could be more exciting, and I’m sure the adreneline rush of seeing the rapidly approaching shore combined with the sudden realization that there are no brakes, was also invigorating. Like a hover craft, the only was to ensure stopping is to do a quick 180 and hope the thrust from the prop stops you in time.
As of right now nobody has jumped on the opening bid of $5000. Any takers?
