Video: A flying bicycle with wings!June 22, 2012 by: Rituraj Mishra
Flying is the ultimate form of driving, as I believe it. After this there is nothing that one would want to do, except flying at higher speeds. Bicycles are one thing we could never hope to see as a flying device, one because they are cheap and other because they are just bicycles, why fly them?
But it can be a good idea, right! We already have tried our hands at making the electric bicycle so why not add two propellers and have a bicycle with wings. You don’t have to start right now, because the first step has already been taken. The concept is to allow a 85 kg bicycle to have short but stable flights of not more than 5 minutes during which it will have speeds of 50km/h.
It just on the board now and will take some time before getting some real time action, but in September it is to be shown at the International Engineering Fair in Brno, Czech Republic. Be there if you want to see some real magic.
