La policía de Dubái comienza entrenamiento en motos voladoras

November 15, 2018 - Una motocicleta voladora desarrollada por la nueva empresa Hoversurf,
con sede en California, se usa para entrenar a policías en Dubái, buscando ayudar a las unidades de primera respuesta a alcanzar áreas de difícil acceso.

The Hoverbike, dubbed Scorpion 3, is an electric vertical take-off and landing (eVTOL) vehicle, consisting of a carbon fibre frame supporting four propellers. The pilot, assisted by a flight computer, controls the machine using two joysticks which allow changes in direction and altitude.

According to Hoversurf, the vehicle has a top speed of more than 90km/h and can fly for up to 25 minutes with a pilot, or 40 minutes in drone mode. Battery recharge time is 2.5 hours.

The Scorpion 3 qualifies as an ultralight under U.S. FAA rules, which means it can be flown without a pilot’s license.
