Uber is determined to get flying cars in the air within 5 years but experts are skeptical. Look at this quote by Elon Musk LOL

"even Elon Musk, who likes flying things, said last year that "if somebody doesn't maintain their flying car, it could drop a hubcap and guillotine you."

    Is it just me or does Uber creating flying cars scare the crap out of you? I mean they are not the most sound company and now they are trying to take on one of the hardest endeavors of our time?! Just a couple months ago their autonomous vehicle KILLED a women! One step at a time Uber, I think they are completely getting ahead of theirselves and this is going to be disastrous.

      Definitely not just you. I would feel much safer with Google or Elon heading this up. Uber bites off way too much.

    Can we focus on ground-driving cars first?  Didn't their AV just kill someone a few months ago?  Now, they are gonna make them fly so it can crash into populated malls and stuff?  Great.

    "drop a hubcap and guillotine you". No thanks, I will stick to cars that stay on the ground!
