Flying “Back To The Future” RC Paper Car

The only thing cooler than a Delorean is a flying Delorean. The only thing cooler than a flying Delorean is one made out of paper.

Instructables user Nelson_Yepez came up with the design.

“Like a lot of people I have always been a big fan of the Back to The Future franchise. I have always dream with having a flying Delorean that travels in time but that not being possible (yet) I went with the best next thing,” he said on the Instructables page describing the project.  The Delorean, which is built to scale, is powered by quadrorotor donated by a friend. (At least he didn’t attach it to his dead cat!)

The car is 12 inches wide, 30 inches long and nine inches high. It also has a working speedometer, and yes, it goes to 88 miles per hour, though you don’t need 1.21 jigawatts to make it fly. It even lights up.

Here’s a video with the lights on and the Delorean in flight. He couldn’t get it to stop spinning, however.

Here’s another view of the lights. It even includes a flux capacitor:
