Hover Bike

If you saw Star Wars you may remember Luke speeding across the desert on a hover craft. How would you like to have something like that?
A guy down under in Australia want to do just that. He’s created a hover bike and he wants to get them built and into your garage.

Some of the specifications are pretty impressive:
Airspeed Vne – 150 KIAS (untested)
Hover (out of ground effect) – >10,000ft (estimated)
Dry Weight – 110kg
Max Gross Weight – 270kg
Total Thrust – 295kg
Engine – 80kw @ 7500rpm
