DesignYourDreams is in the Final Stages of Developing a Flying Bike

— June 16, 2012 — Autos
DesignYourDreams is attempting to make a flying bike a reality at the 2012 International Engineering Fair. The event, held in the Czech city of Brno, will be where the design company unveils its flying bike prototype.

The bike has a total of four propellers, driven by electric motors with a total output of 50 KW. The bike is somewhat bulky, weighing in at 187 pounds. The maximum weight rating for the bike is 374 pounds, which means that riders will have to be pretty slim. DesignYourDreams is anticipating its flying bike to have a total flight time of anywhere from 3 to 5 minutes. The maximum riding time of the bike (on land) is set at 30 to 50 minutes, and its maximum speed will be 31 mph. Whether this bike can do 31 mph in the air remains to be seen.
