Fabre's Flying Cars
Update (May 2010)




Laurent Fabre's
Latest Two-place Design

A Tandem-Seated Vehicle
With Folding Wings

FabreModel

In February of 2008 Laurent Fabre of France submitted his design for a two-place tandem-seated vehicle, able to fly, as well as travel on the road. His plan called for easy conversion from one use to the other, with only five or six bolts to put in place and tighten - two for each wing and one or two for the elevator. The process was designed to take less than 5 minutes! By May of 2008 he completed considerable experimentation on the basic design and offered several improvements.

Now, in 2010, he offers a new design that incorporates a folding wings device. In the accompanying photos he shows his 1/5th flying model, powered with a 0.61 2 stroke engine. The full sized machine would be powered on the road with 2 or 3 electric hub motors with a total power about 15 to 20 kw. That's enough to reach 50 mph. Fabre suggests that It would take only 2 minutes to fold or unfold the wings, you just have to push them back or forward to have a car or a plane! You can do that alone of course, and without tools!
