Get yourself on this electric “flying bike” and off you go !
We were telling you recently about an electric tractor being available on the market, but who was thinking that a “flying bike” is also out there? Recently, an eVTOL (electrical vertical take-off and landing) vehicle hit the market: Scorpion 3 Hoverbike (S3 2019 Hoverbike).
According to CNN, Dubai Police already purchased this electric flying vehicle and started to train their officers for riding it. This futuristic bike-quadcopter is available for anyone to purchase it though. Hoversurf’s preorders have been made available for people attracted to their new Hoverbike S3 2019.
