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.

Gear Factor Flying Car video viewed 4.5 million times on Youtube!

 
 

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!

Flying Chevy Sonic scores at Atlanta International Auto Show

 
 

The Flying Sonic at the Chevrolet stand.
Chevrolet Detroit utilized for the first time the Flying Sonic at this year's International Auto Show in Atlanta. The Gear Factor Flying Car performed to perfection and was commented the most exciting attraction at this event. The project was conducted in cooperation with Jack Morton Worldwide, who developed the concept of the Chevrolet booth at this exhibition.

The Atlanta International Auto Show is not the largest car show around, but has a unique cosy atmosphere, perfect to take an Gear Factor Flying Car to the air. The Flying Chevy Sonic was executed to perfection and its realistic design with a high level of detail made many in the crowd believe this is a real car taking off. For once there was plenty of space and the Flying Sonic cruised over the whole Chevrolet stand much to the enjoyment of the Chevy product managers and models. Of course they were a bit scared at first by such a large object flying close to them overhead. Our explanations that an Gear Factor Flying Car weighs only 5kg, is based on lighter-than-air technology and therefore can't fall out of the sky reassured all staff and they played around with this surprising show during their car presentations. In fact, Chevrolet was the only car brand at this motor show that offered it's visitors some exciting entertainment. No wonder, the Chevrolet stand was comparatively well attended (what happened to car shows in the US by the way?). Especially the kids were very ecstatic and danced along under the Flying Chevy Sonic all the way. You can watch a video here.
