Terrafugia revealed the Outer Mold Line for the TF-X, the four-seat, vertical takeoff and landing (VTOL) hybrid electric aircraft. The video below shows the TF-X how the engineers at Terrafugia envision it.
Currently Terrafugia has built a one-tenth scale wind tunnel model to test the design. The development of the Terrafugia TF-X is expected to last 8-12 years. Fans of flying cars can already reserve a Terrafugia Transition now and will get first access to the TF-X.
The TF-X has a full auto-pilot for flying capable of automatically avoiding other air traffic, bad weather, and restricted and tower-controlled airspace.
The futuristic flying car will have a backup full-vehicle parachute system which can be activated by the operator in an emergency if the operator believes the TF-X™ to be incapable of auto-landing.
The details on the planned features of the TF-X can be found here.
