Re: Elephant in the room - Quadcopters...

I find the possibilities of fuel-cells fascinating since finding Hydrogen Fuel Cell quadcopters/drones claims that can fly for up to 4-hours straight in perfect ideal conditions with a large tank and nothing to carry like a camera/weight etc. With the "fuel-cell flying electric car" also supposedly ...

I can't tell if this bike is an ebike or not, it kind of looks like one, at the start of the video it doesn't look like he's pedalling at all.
