The Scorpion-3 hoverbike, a ‘human-carrying drone’

This Scorpion-3 hoverbike is a cross between a motorcycle and a quadcopter, a ‘human-carrying drone’ that hopes to be “the next step in accessible amateur flying developed to inspire athletes, engineers, scientists and inventors around the world.” It was created by Hoversurf, a Russian drone startup.
