Originally slated for delivery to customers by 2017, the AeroMobile prototype suffered an unfortunate crash in Nitra, West Slovakia with inventor and designer, Štefan Klein at the controls.

The Czech News Agency reports that the aircraft went into a uncontrollable downward spin beginning at an altitude of about 700ft, forcing Klein to activate the emergency recovery parachute.

Although the prototype is pretty banged up, Štefan Klein managed to walk away from the crash on his own and was later admitted to the hospital.
