As you see in the website description, the design calls for suspension that is Commercial-Off-The-Shelf automotive suspension; the full-size mockup has Chevrolet steering, springs, wheels, brakes, and shock absorbers.

The problem-solving scheme is focussed on time. The problem with rentals is the time required for transferring. Of course, one could rent a StrongMobile.

Would a serious design for an aircraft use a car suspension - bearing in mind the weight factor? That is one serious conflict between the designs for the two modes, I fear.

Have you ever flown or near-flown this machine?
