AirStage - When Cars learn to fly


Hey Guys

A new addition to the never ending dicussions about Mobility in our Future ... flying Cars!

Taken from their Homepage: Presentation of the Opel Astra – Only flying is better[...] The show ended with an eye catcher – “Only flying is better” – that was Opel’s advertising slogan. To give that slogan new meaning, the new Astra GTC floated out of the top of the “Gasometers”. It was actually a deceivingly realistic 1:1 scale model complete with headlights. The custom car weighed about 5kg (11 pounds). An Airstage employee from Schlaitdorf flew the scale model with a remote control. The founders of Airstage, Rainer and Günther Mugrauer, have been making anything their customers wish fly for about 8 years. This ranges from an everyday zeppelin all the way to a flying RV trailer. Rainer Mugrauer’s training as an aerospace manufacturer has given his so called light-frame models excellent flying characteristics. Not even the sky’s the limit!


A Vauxhall Astra VXR was already at Top Gear in Episode 2 of Season 7, check it out!

ACTIVE BODY CONTROL (ABC)Subfunction of the suspension system MAGIC BODY CONTROL. The Mercedes-Benz ABC suspension has four suspension struts with hydraulic cylinders to set the force individually in each suspension strut, thus all but completely eliminating the lifting, rolling and pitching motion of the vehicle body. Various acceleration sensors send information about the current driving situation to the control unit which, in turn, compares this information with the data received from the pressure sensors in the suspension struts and the level sensors on the axle links. Based on the results of this comparison, the system calculates control signals which are then converted into precisely measured oil flows by servohydraulic values at the front and rear axle.
