well that's what I thought with the kind of ridiculous Terrafugia thing at the New york show - but have a look at this Dutch one - I mean, is this thing cool or what...

I think the gyrocoptor concept works better as a flying car than any airplane configurations I've seen. However, the holy grail of the gyroplane industry is "jump takeoff" capability. It doesn't appear that this gyroplane includes this feature. It would be nice to be able to take off and land with zero roll. See the video below for jump takeoff examples.
