The first of its kind, the hoverbike features a home-baked software for manual and automatic controls. The software can help the rider limit the speed and altitude of the hoverbike. As the handles, the prototype hoverbike features two joysticks, one for each hand. It can also be flown with the help of a remote control.
The makers say that the Scorpion 3 platform can be used to create drone cars and cargo drones in addition to the hoverbike. For now, Hoversurf is aiming Scorpion 3 as an “extreme sports instrument”. But it is soon to think of a Motocross-style hoverbike world championship.
It is advised to remain alerted while riding a bike to prevent accidents. Hoversurf’s hoverboard cum quadcopter concept is squirmy and stunning at the same time. Just make the mistake of losing your attention during the ride and you won’t be able to see your legs after that.
