Hoverbike -The Flying Motorcycle
This Hoverbike was originally envisioned as a two-bladed speeder that drives like a motorcycle. But a lack of stability in that design.Hoverbike is a revolution in personal aviation transport, designed to do what a helicopter does, but cost less and do so better.
The carbon fiber Hoverbike weighs 231 pounds with a maximum takeoff weight of 595 pounds. On just the primary fuel tank it has a range of 92 miles at 80 knots (92 mph), with a theoretical top speed of 172 mph and a maximum altitude of 10,000 feet.Control is by the motorcycle style handlebars, twist grips control rotor thrust and deflection of the air vanes which provides forward and reverse, turns are controlled by turning the bars.
Explosive parachutes to bring the craft down in the event of engine failure or the rider can wear a chute, too.When compared with a helicopter, the Hoverbike is cheaper, more rugged and easier to use and represents a whole new way to fly.The bike has been under construction for at least the past five years
Expected to come with a hefty price tag of more than £45,000
