M400 In Flight

Moller International Selling the M400 Prototype

Moller International
FOR SALE: This is the original Moller M400 Skycar®. It is the world’s first true VTOL (vertical-takeoff-and-landing) “Flying Car” to be demonstrated.
The M400 Skycar® is a true museum piece, developed over many years and first flown in 2001 at the company’s shareholder meeting. It has since flown (under a restricted environment) many times. This vehicle was featured on the covers of Popular Science, Popular Mechanics, and the topic of countless news articles and broadcasts including 60 Minutes, ABC, Bloomberg, CNN, and Discovery Channel. The M400 Skycar® is very prevalent on Google and You Tube.

Moller International/Freedom Motors July 2017 Newsletter

Moller International
Moller International is running the hyperlinked ad on eBay. There are two possible outcomes. In the case where the M400 Skycar® sells to a collector, MI would then have the funds to move forward in order of priority with the Neuera 200, Neuera Firefly, and Skycar® 100. We have airframe and engines available for all these models. The Skycar® 200 would then be developed ahead of the Skycar® 400. In the case where the M400 Skycar® is sold to someone who wants to have it FAA approved so he can fly it, the above priorities would occur concurrent with supporting FAA approval of the M400 Skycar®.

Moller International
Many of you have expressed concern regarding our slow progress towards the first tether-free out of ground effect flight of the Neuera 200. This has been primarily due to limited funds. It is estimated that final assembly including participation by a designated FAA inspector could cost up to $500,000.

Battery Powered Flying Cars
The funding from Power Source Creations (PSC), according to its principals, is very close. Follow this link (see below) for an explanation as to why the timing has been so uncertain, even though according to PSC the funds have already been allocated.

Volantor Status
As noted in the report I gave at our annual MI/FM stockholder’s meeting, both the Neuera 200 and M400 Skycar® programs to install upgraded Rotapower® engines are on hold.

Battery Powered Flying Cars
Moller International has received a number of emails from newsletter subscribers who have expressed concern that MI’s lead in VTOL capable flying cars is being upstaged by companies like Airbus, Ehang, Embraer, Google, and Joby. Nothing that is presently contemplated as a battery powered flying car is a threat to the technology that has been developed by MI.

Interesting Observation
History tends to repeat itself. In 1922, the De Bothezat helicopter flew successfully carrying two passengers. It had a remarkably similar configuration to a scaled up present-day wingless drone including four counter-rotating propellers.
