The X-Aero X Craft is a one person hoverbike that is part of the GoFly competition.

The X-Craft has an open cockpit. It uses six electric motors. On either side are forward and aft pusher vertical propellers (four total) on short gimbaled wings that can rotate the props into a pusher mode for horizontal flight. Small forward facing ducted fans are located on assemblies beyond the wings for added stability. It has a ballistic parachute. A battery storage compartment appears to be located in an undercarriage below the cockpit.

The project is being carried out by RMIT University in Melbourne, Australia.
