Last year we posted about the surprisingly compact hydroplane FlyNano. Its first flight in the video took place recently at Finland’s Lake Hepari.
FlyNano has flown its prototype equipped with a new battery-powered electric engine.
Its wing-span is only 5 meters, its carbon fiber chassis is lighter than 70 kilograms (154 pounds), it is easy to fly (without a pilot’s license) and costs under $34,000.
With its small electric engine, you’ll be able to hit 80 mph at 9,800-foot ceiling and 40-mile range.
Delivery date is set for the end of 2013.
