They claim it to be an ultralight, and there are provisions that allow an amphibious ultralight to be heavier, due to whatever is used for floatation is heavier, also some amphibs are allowed retractable Landing gear
which is normally not allowed either, maybe that part is LSA.
Really irrelevant, cause I’d bet lunch this thing only exists on paper and a computer screen
, there may be concept
model, but I bet it’s not flying. Pretty obvious it’s meant to land and take off vertically or nearly so, then transition to level Flight, and that is tough, can be done, but it isn’t easy.
