Flying electric bicycle

Three companies in the Czech Republic have created a flying bicycle. They have a prototype that is controlled remotely at present, rather than having a human rider.

Pretty cool, I thought.

    It’s got six fans, two in the front, two in the back, one on each side, but it looks terribly unforgiving when it loses a prop.

    It’s a bicycle wrapped in a food processor inside a death trap.

    Presumably the remote-control pilot’s comment about “motionlessness” is somebody’s mistranslation of “inertia”.

    Even if they get the battery problem solved, I for one don’t want to try riding one of those in a cross-wind.

    Nothing inspires confidence like having a mannequin pilot your invention

    That could be it or more likely the mannequin only weighs two kilos.
