Hoverbike prototype is world’s first flying motorcycle

Hoverbike is an ambitious project that aims to create a flying motorcycle. The initial prototype below looks like a podracer from one of those Starwars movies.

The Hoverbike uses a 1170cc air-cooled, twin 4-stroke engine and weighs 105kg but can carry as much as 270kg. Theoretical speed is about 150 knots (270km/hour).

The Hoverbike combines the simplicity of a motorbike and the freedom of a helicopter to create the world’s first flying motorcycle.When compared with a helicopter, the Hoverbike is cheaper, more rugged and easier to use – and represents a whole new way to fly. The Hoverbike flies like a quadcopter, and can be flown unmanned or manned, while being a safe – low level aerial workhorse with low on-going maintenance.

The project requires crowd-funding to the amount of £30,000 but has already gotten a little over £48,000.

You can check out the design and development process here and also make a pledge.
