Colin Furze produces a drone bicycle #Hoverbike that flies and describes it as “the most fantastic thing I’ve ever ridden”.
An amateur inventor has reacted to the wishes of his millions of YouTube followers and built a hoverbike that flies.
Former plumber Colin Furze, whose video channel has 2.5 million fans, stimulated his admirers – and Sky News viewers – to recommend a new form of transport.
Some 15,000 people desired him to invent a hoverbike which could fly over barriers or take choice routes such as over rivers or fields.
After a couple of weeks repairing away in his backyard shed in Lincolnshire, Mr. Furze revealed his drone bicycle replete with a couple of two-stroke motors and rotor blades.
Although it has no place, mechanical brakes or steering, the contraption is nonetheless strong enough to lift Mr. Furze off the ground.
“It’s the most fantastic thing I’ve ever ridden,” he said.
“Feeling it lift for the first experience was such a peculiar feeling. It only just boosts me off the ground.
“I assayed out all sorts of frames; hacked bits off and joined bits on, until finally I started noticing results.”
Mr. Furze, who has also developed wrist-worn flame throwers and Wolverine-style claws, allowed the bike sometimes gets into a bit of a spin when the rotors are not rolling at the same speed.
But he insisted his creativity can move forwards, backwards and sideways using stable weight distribution, comparable to a hoverboard.
“Controlling it is a little miracle but with a bit of training you can learn how to tame it,” he said.
“When both engines are in sync this is a stable machine.
“People predicted it would flip over, but it’s never even come close to doing that.”
Writing on his website, he added: “The experience the hoverbike operated at all is a miracle, which shows you should try stuff even if you think you know the outcome.”
