I must say the craft is "unbelievable" - as in impossible !  But we can only dream -Sorry - but I beleive this is a hoax.  I have owned a "SCAT" hovercraft which looks very much as this flying craft.  My hovercraft had a 45 hp Rotex engine and would barely lift off the ground here in Colorado, USA due to limited power.  3/4 of the air was forced under the craft for lift.  1/4 was directed out the back as to push.  The underside was a square box. shape as for floating.  When the craft shut down in the water it was like a Army tank !  What is engine is in this craft?  What is the hp?  The total weight ?  The material on the wing surface seems to be a little slack.  What amount of wing surface is required  to lift this weight?  Do you really believe that the craft is forcing enough air downward as to lift this craft enough to fly ??? - and the prop is pushing it forward through the air ?  How is it being controlled? Sorry - but I believe this just another hoax on U-Tube.  Has anyone ever heard of the "Molhler ( sp?) Flying Car"?  that man has been workin on it for max years - costing him millions of dollars.   Sincerely - Mtn Mel- Deweese, Ret. USN SERE/POW Inst.
