Flying cars are a total compromise - not a good car and not a good aeroplane. The cost of these "hybrids" is usually so high, that anyone with that kind of money just buys a decent aeroplane and a decent car.

There will never be millions of flying cars cruising around the planet - it's a flawed concept.

...they are heavier than air.
Therefore they must exert a downward force.
But they have nothing to push against except air.
Air is a gas.
Getting a force against it, requires significant expense of power.
Power is costly and will become more so.

Judging by how many of the poor things they used up making that stupid show.
