As kids I think we all dreamed of flying cars. It would be the coolest thing in the world if it came true. Unfortunately, there are a few billion too many people stuffed onto this planet for that idea to ever be feasible. It's just not a viable way for a population this big to get around. Honestly, I'd prefer if there were LESS aircraft in the sky than there are now, not more. This might have something to do with my house being under a flight path, but the bottom line is that it's real hard these days to find peace and quiet in this world. Cool vehicles are great, but quality of life has to come first.

So I really don't care of Moeller is for real or not, because even if his idea and implementation were sound, flying cars for individuals just simply isn't viable on this planet.
