This all sure looks like a lot of fun boys, just forget to confirm with NORAD the flight path and altitude, and make sure you get the TSA to grope your privates before take off.

#6 54 kilos of dry weight.

#7 They do. In the "Training hill" part (starts at 1:55) or in other videos at their website. It lands either on that little wheel in the back and a skid in the front, or by the pilot putting his feet down like he does during takeoff. The speed is like 4 mph or even less into the wind, so it shouldn't be a problem.

#9 Sadly, a little tiny bit too much for me or anybody else except for maybe Bill Gates or something. This bird will set you back 75.300 Swiss Francs, or nearly $83.000. That is, if you dare to fly it without the instruments, rescue system and other important stuff that comes at extra charge. :(

#11 Not necessarily. They mention some kind of pyrotechnically deployed emergency canopy (parachute) that allows bringing the whole craft and its pilot down to earth with minimum damage.
