Gear Factor Flying Car video cracks 20,000,000 views on Youtube


Flying car clip on YouTube.
When we wrote about this two years ago it seemed rather special to get 4.5 million clicks with our little clip. But what a time it has been. We just made it to 20 million and counting. That's a staggering 16 million views in the last 48 month. Beyoncé, we are rolling in!

The clip of the Opel Astra flying outdoors now consistently ranks in the top ten results for the keyword 'car' on Youtube. A nice side-effect is that the clip is pushing our Youtube Channel to a wider audience. Take a look! It's basically content from our website, but worthwhile a visit for a quick overview.

Our flying cars weight average around 5kg while they are so realistic that you can put them in the parking lot and people will not realize this is some sort of mock-up. We produce them from the CAD/CAM data of the original car design. Fitted with our custom-built radio control system and brush-less motors they are maneuvered with precision. Our clients use them at car shows, media actions, TV shows and many other types of events. Our flying cars are without doubt our best selling flying event product. The list of car brands that have used this concept is quite long.

Flying Car Video on Youtube takes off.
When we uploaded this video three years ago the traffic was very modest, but then this outdoor clip of an Gear Factor Flying Car took off far beyond what we could ever have imagined.

Every day this video is watched by an average of 12.000 users around the globe and has received thousands of 'likes' and comments. It is our best horse to market our unique remote-controlled flying event technology to event planners and marketing executives on a very broad platform. We planned to talk about this for a long time, but now it seems the right moment to mention it: this amazing video is ranked around the top 15 search results for the keyword 'car' on Youtube and is in the top three Google results for the search term 'flying car'. OK, it's a bit mischievous to call it a 'real flying car' in the description, but then it is one of our very real event products flying around in a village. The footage is actually from an experimental flight in ideal outdoor conditions.

Because of the high realism we achieve with car models the debate on Youtube (over 7800 comments so far) is quite fierce whether this is a real Opel Astra, a blimp, computer graphics or some kind of magical trick. Believe it or not, dozens of folks have contacted us and wanted to purchase one believing it's an actual flying car or wanted to order upgrade kits for their vehicles. Sorry, can't help there!
