A team of seven talented kids of the Kristo Asafo Mission of Ghana has built a breathtaking version of the aeroplane car that was recently launched by the Kantanka group.
The young children who are all under the age of 12 gave a live demonstration on KTV’s popular TV program, ‘Kantanka Exclusive of how the aero-car can be controlled with a software.
Nana Kwame Opoku who is 12 years of age was the spokesperson for the group and he explained with great eloquence that the reason they decided to embark on the mini-project was to prove to the outside world that Africans are also capable of creating great things.

Kwame indicated that they drew inspiration from the massive projects that their grandfather Emeritus Prof. Dr Kwadwo Safo Kantanka has been making, particularly his first-ever Aeroplane Car.
The young boy went on further to explain that the small app-controlled aero-car was made chiefly from PVC pipes with funding from some of their teachers who tutor them both in technology and on the bible.
Members of the team consisted of Kweku Afriyie Safo (11yrs), Nana Kwame Opoku (12yrs), Adwoa Afriyie Safowa (8yrs), Obasima Yaa Safowa (7yrs), Osabarima Kwadwo Safo (8yrs) and Oheneba Safo Kantanka (11yrs).
