Hoversurf - The future is here!
Imagine flying as easy as riding a bike. MGM COMPRO partner - Russian drone-building startup Howersurf just released a prototype of a brand new project of their single-seat quadcopter, which could be the future alternative to today's motorcycles.
Future of transport
Hoversurf builds this single-seat aircraft on the Scorpion-3 (S-3) platform, which they see as the future of transportation, shipping cargo and more. This human carrying aircraft can be also remote controlled and has a lot of in-built safety systems that keep it from loosing stability and prevent vehicle from going too fast or too high.
Scorpion-3 is able to carry 125 kg and its maximum speed is 60 km/h. With batteries used, its flight time is actually about 15 minutes, which is still quite short, but major improvement in this field is expected soon.
This flying vehicle has 4 propellers, each is controlled by MGM COMPRO ESC - HBC 280120-3 EI. It is great to see that our components play significant role in managing this beautiful piece of technology.
It is not the first time MGM COMPRO cooperated on onboard controlled drone. Read about similar project from Hungarian company FLIKE in the article.
Drone Taxi or heavy lifting drone?
For now, it is just a prototype, but company Hoversurf Inc. is planning to introduce the serial production model next year. As planned, this prototype significantly helps our partner to develop "Drone Taxi" or heavy lifting drone, so this is just one step on the way to make really big projects come true.
Scorpion 3 quadcopter with motorcycle seat can be controlled remotely or on-board as you can see in the video. It looks as easy as riding a motorcycle!
Scorpion-3 very first public flight at Moscow raceway
