Someone has to keep looking on the bright side:

1) Synergy aircraft. This had a successful Kickstarter launch, and it looks very promising.


2) Equator aircraft. You have to like this one too.


3) Lisa airplanes, from France. The company's motto is, A new way of life. To which I say, d'accord!


4) The "rice ball," from VW's Chengdu division. This is the kind of thing I was talking about.
