    Oh its real, look at the back of the lawnmower and there are two control surfaces on it, both up and down at the same time is up and down, and one at a time is left and right, get a 19-in crt and take a F**KING LOOK! That is some cool ****

    hehehe..... does many a show in the uk.. .try cosford and take in the museum as well... 9-10 july.. ace show....

    the way it fly;s is quite simple.. it is a lifting body (the main body of the lawnmover is airfoil shaped) at the back of this is yer control surfaces.... thats why its so jerky ... another good one to watch out for is gromit and his plane and broomhilda the witch.... basicaly a hanglider.. (her cloak makes the flying canopy) geat fun

    You don't need a lifting body with the power to weight ratio of R/C model engines. My brother made a flying brick (rectangular chunk of foam stamped with ACME and painted like clay) just for fun. No airfoil at all. AOA and prop thrust produces all the lift.

    ive seen flying boards, bricks etc etc....i know u dont need the lifting body but because the lawnmowers do shows they just have to be slightly morecontrolable.. no doubt someone somewhere has already made a "normal" lawnmower fly..

    I'm sure this aircraft would have went into large-scale production had the P-51 not been so successful.

    If you think about it, though... It may fly, but how well does it cut the grass?

    It was just like a flying car.
    Recently I bought the riding lawn mower, and I was wishing that I can fly it but it not happened in real Then I watched a video clip on youtube or seeing that flying lawnmower is really exit or not and it's exit. You can see it here, and I was surprised after seeing it.
