The new age flying bicycle concepts can change all that. Have you ever dreamt that you are on your bike and it is moving swiftly above the other automobiles? The bicycle designers all around the world have been striving for making the perfect flying bicycle to accommodate the needs of the modern bicycle users. Waiting for the traffic to get cleared can be tiresome and annoying. The flying bicycles can take you to your destination easily without any traffic hazards. The new flying bicycle concepts are extremely flexible and environment friendly. They do not emit carbon monoxide or other polluting gases. For short distances and commuting between city and country they can be very useful.
The Flying Bike:
The Flying Bike or the Fbike is a Czech venture. Though it started last year it has not yet reached completion. Janet Cinert and Milan Duchek are two of the contributors. The Fbike will be able to fly as the name suggests but it will also be able to move on roads normally. There are total 6 propellers attached with the Flying Bike. There are four electric motors of 10KW power in the front. It will also have accelerometers and gyroscopes for monitoring the state of the Fbike in all conditions.
Battery Powered Flying Bicycle:
Three Czech companies have made it their motto to successfully launch the Battery Powered Flying Bicycle. It has already been tested in Prague and where it did fly for about five minutes. It has six propellers. The propellers are arranged in a scientific way to keep the bicycle balanced during its flight. Two of them are attached with the front part; two of them are attached with the end half and two of them are attached on the sides.
John Fordon and Yannick Read have created the very unique Paravelo that can take off from any sufficient open ground and goes up to 4000 ft. It has flexible wings and paramotors.
