  Alauda Aeronautics Airspeeder Mk3                                                  Source:  Alauda First Unmanned Flights for Flying Race Car Alauda Aeronautics' Airspeeder Mk3 - a flying race car - has just successfully completed its first, unmanned test flights over the South Australia desert.  The flying car is a spectacular piece of technology, inspired by Formula One race cars dating back to the 1950's and 1060's.  It's an all electric, 13 feet long, octocopter e-VTOL, that vertically takes off and lands like a helicopter.  Alauda is building at least ten Airspeeders, which will participate in the world's first flying race car races later this year. Cutting Edge Flying Car Technologies Airspeeder is powered by a lithium polymer battery that delivers fifteen minutes of flying time.  The flying car weighs 287 pounds.  It delivers incredible speed - up to 155 mph - and has tremendous power and agility. It accelerates from 0 to 62 mph in 2.8 seconds. For collisio
