Hoverbike...who wants one?

Looks like fun...not sure about his confidence though. The plan is to have not one but three parachutes aboard. I suppose it would suck to fall to your death just because you got cold hands and lost your grip. :rolleyes:

Looks like it could be useful and fun.

Not much for glide though or safety though

Would definitely require a parachute for pilot and machine.
I can just imagine the regulators trying to define this for licensing purposes.
