The Springtail Exoskeleton Flying Vehicle

A company called Trek Aerospace has developed the Springtail Exoskeleton Flying Vehicle, a single pilot, vertical take-off-and-landing helicopter-type aircraft.
The craft supports the pilot in a standing position and is powered by a 118 hp rotary engine which drives two counter-rotating fans.
The Springtail is controlled by a computer system that can tilt each fan individually to control pitch and yaw. It has a top speed of 113 mph and a range of 184 miles. The retail price is $1.25 million USD.
