This is pretty cool, if it’d not a hoax.
Chris Malloy built a hoverbike that he claims could theoretically reach speeds of 173 mph and a height of more than 10,000 feet, due to its high thrust-to-weight ratio. Right now? It only hovers about three feet off the ground while tethered to the ground. Malloy worked two years to achieve this feat, which may seem like quite a long time only to get the hover part of the hoverbike working, but Malloy did this himself in his garage.
