Just reading the words "homemade flying car" probably has you saying, "Duh, of course it ends in disaster." But you gotta see how!

Surprisingly the disaster isn't the car falling apart, or not taking flight. It indeed stays in tact and even lifts off...It's what happens after take off.

It seems they'll have to go back to the drawing board if they plan on making one of these things again. Also, they may want to rethink where they try to launch this thing if there is a next time. Maybe a bigger "runway" of sorts.

My favorite part might be the guy who was videoing, and turns away after it took off, only to miss the actual disaster.

The actual part where it starts and takes flight begins at around :40 seconds.
