Colin Furze Builds a Hoverbike with Help from Ford

The hoverbike has arrived, thanks to the internet’s favorite inventor Colin Furze. This incredible feat was documented on YouTube thanks to a little help from Ford.

The hoverbike goes only a foot or two off the ground and looks like a fun way to get around.

YouTuber creator Colin Furze, famous for his homemade Wolverine claws, jet-powered bicycle, underground bunker and recent thermite launcher, embarked on his first-ever flying project. His fans begged him to build it and he succeeded. He created his idea of a hoverbike, a seatless, brake-less flying machine powered by two engine powered propellers. This video shows him flying it in brief flight as the machine looks difficult to fly at first.

Furze created this dangerous and amazing hoverbike which looks not to far off from something you might see on the set of Star Wars. However crazy it looks and sounds, riding it must be a lot of fun.

According to Mashable, Furze crafted the hoverbike with some parts supplied by Ford, documenting the process from picking what to make, getting the necessary materials, building it and riding it.

It took four sessions to really get the hang of flying it.

“[The project’s] been going on over the past three months, but maybe only four to five weeks have been spent on it as I spent a lot of time waiting for parts like the propellers,” Furze told Mashable.

After landing on the hoverbike’s final design iteration — reached mostly by chopping bits off — Furze said it took four flying sessions to really get the hang of flying it.

“It’s all on getting the engines running the same speed and how you position yourself,” he said.

And, of course, if you stay until the end of the video, he shoots fireworks off the front of it while cruising through the air.

For his first invention that had him flying through the air, the hoverbike worked out. As for inventing and building more flying contraptions, Furze said he thinks there should be more airborne adventures in his future.
