The creators of the Scorpion-3 ensure that it can stay in the air for up to 27 minutes at a speed of 48 kilometers per hour and reach an altitude of 30 meters carrying about 120 kilograms of weight. It costs 150 thousand dollars
The Scorpion-3 is a mixture of motorcycle with drone that for the first time has been arranged to be manned. Hoversurf is the manufacturer of this amazing technology, which has built a single seat aircraft capable of lifting a person in the sky with full control of the passenger.
It is a prototype manufactured by the Russian Company Hoversurf. This gadget combines elements of a motorcycle with those of a drone. Its structure can only be used by one person , so it does not offer the option of carrying a package passenger . The maximum weight you can carry is 150 kilos.
According to its creators, no previous experience is required to drive it: the pilot can easily modify the steering and the height with the controls. Its estimated maximum speed could reach 100 km / h, a point more sufficient to carry out urban routes. The autonomy of flight is about half an hour. Then the battery has to be recharged, but the company has not provided data on this point.
The creators of Hoversurf put the new hoverbike available to fans and professionals, for the sum of USD 150 thousand . For although it is only considered a team of “extreme sports “, it is expected that it will become a means of transport with all the potential that many already glimpse from the technological evolution of the drones.
The Hoverbike Scorpion 3 is a new example of the speed with which they develop and perfect flying contraptions that pretend to become an alternative as a means of transport in the not too distant future. Anyway, there is still a long way to go so that the scenes starring Speeder bikes in Star Wars are a daily reality.
