The future is here! And it features four open propellers inches from your vital organs. In a video released by the Russian based Hoversurf, a brave soul takes the new Scorpion 3 hoverbike for a spin. It functions surprisingly well but we have a feeling you won’t be seeing it at the dealership anytime soon.
Begin Press Release:
Have you ever dreamed of flying with the same simplicity as riding a bike?
SCORPION platform is a single-seat aircraft that rediscovers the art of flying and hovering enabling a hi-tech quadcopter-based solution. It’s a unique electric-powered vessel combining a motorcycle seat with quadcopter drone technology bringing speed agility and stability of flight to the hands of amateur and professional navigators. For the moment, SCORPION platform is increasingly seen as an extreme sports instrument, yet the vessel’s transportation potential remains evident.
Starting as a “crowdfunding” project, SCORPION platform is the next step in accessible amateur flying developed to inspire athletes, engineers, scientists and inventors around the world.
Now we are proud to present the perfect hoverbike solution!
The Future is closer than it seems!
SCORPION platform is part of a series of projects including Jetpack by Malloy, Aerofex, A. Duru, E-Hang, Bye-Gravity, E-volo.
SCORPION platform was designed for extreme conditions and employs in-house custom software for full manual and automated control resulting in a thrilling flight experience.
We dedicated a lot of resources and efforts to R&D achieving that the unit’s size and shape resemble a compact dirt bike. The design of SCORPION platform was inspired by heavy-duty sport-utility motorbike frames and the concept was combined with flight qualities providing speed and maneuvering. The machine basically surfs through the air by changing altitude and direction.
While our projects cover civil aircraft engineering, SCORPION platform was initially designed as a powerful tool for those who dare to challenge.
SCORPION platform is equipped with a safety system powered by state of the art flight controllers, special logical programing and passive elements with computer aided speed and altitude limiting.
