Flynano can achieve a maximum speed of 140 km/h (87 mph). It can take off with a maximum weight of 200 kilograms (440 pounds). Its rudder is controlled by pedals. The electric version of the plane has a limited range of 40 kilometers. When the aircraft will be commercialized, it will cost €27,000 (US $39,000). At present, it’s being developed by a Finnish aeronautical firm named as the same as the aircraft – FlyNano.

The FlyNano aircraft may come to market possibly at the end of 2013. However, the company has already pre-sold 35 planes each at approximately €27,000 (US $34,164).
