Czech Company Creates Operational Flying Bicycle

Design and engineering company Technodat has created a flying bicycle in partnership with aircraft design company Evektor and bicycle-maker Duratec. In the video, the 220-pound, radio-controlled bike flies for several minutes with a dummy on board using six battery-powered propellers. In a press release, Technodat director Aleš Kobylík said “Our main motivation at work on the project was not profit or commercial interest, but the fulfillment of our boyhood dreams.”
