VIDEO: Manned-hoverbike takes first flight
Hoversurf, a drone company from Russia, introduced its latest prototype named Scorpion-3, a single-seat, electric-powered hoverbike.
According to the company, the Scorpion platform is a single-seat aircraft that rediscovers the art of flying and hovering, enabling a hi-tech quadcopter-based solution. It is an electric-powered vessel, combining a motorcycle seat with quadcopter drone technology for speed agility and stability of flight to the hands of amateur and professional navigators.
The hoverbike platform was designed for extreme conditions and employs in-house custom software for full manual and automated control.
Hoversurf says the Scorpion’s design was “inspired by heavy-duty sport-utility motorbike frames” and “basically surfs through the air by changing altitude and direction.”
The company put a certain limitation on the flying bike, including the speed and height limitation for safety reasons.
