If I had a Million Dollars.....

I ran across this today. Would make a fine Dinghy.

But I'd need a 2x bigger boat. But then you'd want two of them since they only seat 1, which means a 3x bigger boat.


If you google it there are some videos



Fun to dream though..........

Flying inflatable would be far more versatile.
Gets a couple of people up and afterwards you have an actual dinghy and about $950,000 (guessing) in your wallet.

I have one of these in storage Iíll make you a deal on.
They arenít sold anymore and are in fact illegal in certain places, like any lake the Corp of Engineers control.
They are a blast though

That flyer looks really cool and fun, though the propellers look unsafe.

Re: If I had a Million Dollars.....

A64pilot- I wonder if that tube kite would work behind my C Scow. We've towed water skiers behind it before. It worked surprisingly good outside of having jump off ready to go. But only while sailing down wind. But the tube would be a breeze compared to ski's lol.

As far as the drone thing goes.I'd prefer something like the Mosquito xet personal helicopter. I just wish that along with my million dollars that the turbine powered model qualified as a ultralight under part 103 lol

Re: If I had a Million Dollars.....

You need about 30 kts or better for the flying tube, the heavier the Roberson, the faster of course.
