Randy and Ian,
I have more questions. It's not clear if this device is limited to skimming, or can it fly? Not long after the start of the film, they pull-up and make a hard left turn. I would have expected that turn to cause a minimal or more drop in altitude, but there was no noticeable drop. They did not say how many passengers, if any, they were carrying while filming. They never showed it above several feet high along the calm water. The name Widgetworks makes me nervous.
If ya can't fly the thing from Balboa Island to Catalina Island with 8-10 drunk passengers, then what fun would it really be. :laugh:
