Birth of the first flying scooter in China: the highest flying range of 1000 meters is 20 kilometers with a load of 80 kg
Standing on an aircraft, people would be able to fly freely through the air like two-wheeled balancing vehicles, in a scene we seem to have only seen in science fiction movies.But with the development of rocket technology, such scenes are beginning to appear in our real life.
China's first flying scooter has been developed by 14 systems research departments of the China Academy of Launch Vehicle Technology, according to a statement released by the academy on Nov 10.
As can be seen from the actual photos taken by the aircraft, there are standing platforms on both sides of the aircraft, and a flight engine is set under the middle upper shell. The fuel is mounted in the backpack of the pilot.
According to reports, the scooter can load 80 kg, the highest flying height of 1000 meters, mainly used in the 100 meters below the low altitude flight, the range of up to 20 kilometers.
The operator standing upright on the scooter can use the center of gravity to control the skateboard comprehensively and cooperate with the control handle to control the skateboard. The scooter can be used in traffic jams, aerial work, disaster rapid rescue and other scenarios.
The flying scooter is composed of power system, control system and structural system. The power system consists of five micro-turbine engines and fuel packs. Even when a single engine fails, it does not affect normal flight. Fuel for the engine comes from the fuel pack and weighs no more than 30 kg.
As we have learned, only France has mastered pedal-type flying skateboard technology at present. China's first flying scooter has a safer and more flexible design, according to the China Academy of Launch Vehicle Technology.
Seeing such a technological artifact, many netizens joked, "give me a purchase link", "give a price, let me give up", "this than aerial photography drone cattle, flying up is the real God's perspective.
Well, have you been tempted by such a "hoverboard"?
