Worlds first flying motorcycle – Hoverbike Helicopter

Malloy’s hoverbike is closer in practice to a quadcopter than anything else. Two rotating blades in front and two in back provide lift and thrust, with controls and a seat in the middle for a pilot. Unlike the ill-fated hoverbikes ofStar Wars, Malloy’s bike can fly above the trees, making it less like a very fast motorcycle and more like a very dainty helicopter scout. Malloy’s one-third scale version is remotely piloted, and it’s likely that any full-sized version will have the option of flying without a human onboard too, making it not just a hoverbike, but a drone that soldiers can ride.
