With the price tag of just under $41k and capable of carrying single person it will be an ultimate airplane for those who are looking for something different. It has full carbon fiber body, electric motor and small lithium battery-pack. Battery can be charged from a standard household wall socket and it takes off and land in the water. So all you need is some nearby lake or pond to serve as your takeoff and landing site and the fun can begin.
