OK hovers nicely - now let's see it carry an 8 oz. package one mile, drop the payload and return to launch point. You know, actually do something.

The companies building the Terrafugia Transition, Martin Jetpack and Malloy Hoverbike are attending and displaying their vehicles at gatherings like the Paris air show and OSHKOSH. You know, things that companies in the aviation industry do to get noticed and where deals are made and signed.
Moller on the other hand sends out newsletters to their fans and does radio interviews on radio stations aimed at audiences interested in the paranormal. `
Like Moller all these companies have missed their dates for when hey thought they would release their vehicles, but at least they are putting themselves on the correct stage.
Moller, in my opinion, has lost touch with reality. If they want to be taken seriously in the world of aviation then they should enter the world of aviation. They may even learn a few things along the way...Like LSA rules etc.
September's newsletter will read: "Our EB-5 (money for green card) manager indicates that $10 million in funding should be in place sometime in December."
December's newsletter AND shareholder meeting powerpoint display will read:" Our EB-5 (money for green card) manager indicates that $10 million in funding should be in place sometime in February."
February's newsletter will read...
Pity we can't post links, but the Martin Jetpack company just announced that they will be pitching their Jetpacks to the US military. Their share price jumped 9% following the news. A share price that is still much higher than their IPO price. The same cannot be said for MLER.
In other news, the US military is also looking at the Malloy Hoverbike.
I remember Moller critisizing both these vehicles, but I haven't read any news about Moller being summoned to DC to demonstrate any of his vehicles.
I think the sudden shift back to the 50 year old Neuera/firefly/m200x/discojet design or whatever they want to call it is because of the interest in these vehicles.
And Jeff, don't bother defending them with 'he completed Aerobot contracts for DARPA', as that was many years ago and frankly I haven't read about a single Aerobot in a combat zone.
And I'm also not interested in hearing about a letter written by an over weight, washed up Air Force colonel with no combat experience or further career advancement opportunities tucked away in an archive in Alaska somewhere that once wrote a letter to his superiors about how valuable he thinks the Skycar will be to the Military. That does not constitute 'miltary interest'. And frankly MI have used 'letters' like these to create the illusion of interest by the government.
Funny how, in all his interviews this year, a test flight is always 2 to 3 months away...
Like the FM offering that has been 'weeks away' for how many years now?
But you can always count on idiotic fanboys to forget...
He sure knows his audience...
come on! you're reaching! give me one example of the dr saying something was gonna happen and it didn't. see? you got nothing!
Pretty sure that Willy was either struck by lightning or kidnapped by aliens.
And not a work about Alife...
Let's hope it happens? Why wouldn't it happen? Its right there in the newsletter.

July 2015 Newsletter

Moller International Update
Progress on Neuera 200
Tooling for mass production of fan blades is complete. The injection molding process will provide finished product as it comes out of the mold as a low price ($20 per blade is in low quantity).
The high energy absorption undercarriage components are in place and ready for testing.
We are developing a much quieter engine silencing system. This system is technically complicated in order to use a shared muffler which requires vacuum operated valves for each engine to prevent back flow into non-operating engines during start up.
Another important development was moving all engine related components (fuel injection and ignition) into the limited space behind each engine. This places three protective firewalls between each engine and the cockpit allowing us to better isolate engine noise. With relatively lower fan speed and a much quieter exhaust system, the Neuera 200 operating on ethanol fuel will be much more environmentally friendly than the previous M200 Neuera prototype.
We have a long list of applications where the Neuera 200 will provide unique market opportunities including recreation and utility applications for border patrol and other paramilitary applications.
Freedom Motors Update
Our EB-5 (money for green card) manager indicates that $10 million in funding should be in place sometime in September. We had competing offers from China and Korea and ended up choosing Korea due to their enthusiasm for our project.
The Reg A paperwork is being revised with the amount to be raised being increased and the status of the EB-5 funding being included as part of the overall business plan.
I will give you a projected completion date as soon as our counsel Jan Carter is able to provide it. In the meantime, I suggest that anyone who might wish to participate in this offering let the Freedom Motors know.
Sentiment: Strong Buy
ok, NOW you got it!
Ok I heard the John Williams interview just now....
1 "They are building a 2 passenger neurea now"
2 "They are going into engine production"
3 "Will test fly in 2-3 months"
4 " He expects stock to go up at least 10 fold from here "

I also can't help noticing that things seem to have gone very quiet about Alife. There was no mention of them in the June newsletter, and they weren't mentioned by name in the May newsletter (although I presume that the reference in the May newsletter to a "large" Singapore manufacturer of scooters refers to Alife).
Alife itself appears to have gone completely quiet -- Their facebook page hasn't been updated since January, their website doesn't appear to have been updated in about a year, and there doesn't appear to have been any contemporary reference to them on the internet since late last year. This doesn't sound to me like an operation that's about to start purchasing millions of engines.
Funny, this seems familiar somehow. Like I've heard something like this before...
The June Newsletter was sent out 6 weeks ago. In said newsletter Moller stated the following: "I expect to be able to provide a status report on our Reg A plus status within the next two weeks".
Explain to me, fanboys, how things are different this year?
We are half way through the year and this company has shown no progress at all. Sure, there have been newsletters and radio interviews, but no progress what so ever.
