The test version of the VertiPod flew on April 7th, carrying 125-pound test occupant Stephen West a few feet off the ground while the vehicle was remotely piloted by its inventor, Pete Bitar. West joins Lady Gaga in the select ranks of "people carried by quadcopters," but if VertiPod is successful, that list will grow. AirBuoyant plans to have a hexacopter version of the VertiPod flying before the end of April, and then wants to make hexacopter kits available for purchase at $23,950 a pop for the first 1000 people to join the beta testing. That's almost $10,000 less than the median price of a new car. The jetpack itself weighs 120 pounds, and is designed to carry up to 250 pounds.
