    ^that is by far the ugliest design ive ever seen, the design of it leave the motor waaaay to exposed, only lasts for an hour, and what would happen if it overheated? seems way too dangerous and poorly made. >_>

    looks like he made his sentence structure bad on purpose

    and you can't fit a high powered motor in a wheel

    Remember the AT's in Airgear went in km not miles.

    And 25 mph top speed is preety good; gotta hand it to the Germans. Im currently a freshmen engineer at WVU; one day Ill understand if AT's in AG will be plausible in its ideal form. But one thing is for certain ~ nothing is impossible: during the late 1940's people doubted that planes capabilities to break the "sound Barieer" (please pardon my spelling); nowadays the U.S is raping the Barieer at MACH 10 (a unmanded rocket that can can potentially intercept nukes).... Hurray for beer!

    Honestly, I think one major issue Of AT's is the calibration of controls of acceleration and breaks in the skates; people cannot control AT's with simple pressure of foot. One, you need to balance yourself constantly; Since the source of the accceleration is preety far from the center of mass, you'll get a "jerking" sensation and flip. You need to lean forward so the COM is "ahead" of the skates. In ther real word, one cannot simple calibrate the acceleration controls and insure the safety of the rider....I think hand-held controls are best, though it would be lame that you can't have "complete control" like in AirGear...

    Now if you want to make the AT's futuristic like in AG i suggest using what the US millitry helicopters are using to get the "maximum rotation". I forgot the terminology, but the design is simple: turbo charging the helicopters with little jet engines so that the helicopter doesn't need a guiding rotary blade at the back. I heard that it gives a extra "kick" to the rotary power output to these helicopters, which increases the loading capacity of these helicopters. If this was implemented to AT's in real world, we can combine tiny but efficent rockets with a state of an art electrical AT's to get maximum speeds. One flaw of this devise is the saftey: you have freakin jet engines on your foot...

    I had hoped that this thread would die a lot sooner, since its retarded and we already have a thread like this, but since its obviously not going to, I think its about time I locked it.
