On Jan. 29, Jetson Aero revealed its Speeder hoverbike prototype: a single-seat all-electric flying go-kart with four pairs of propellers powered by brushless electric motors. The company was founded in October 2017 and has carried out manned test flights, first in Tuscany, Italy, and then in Poznan, Poland. The Speeder can carry a passenger weighing up to 220 lb (100 kg) for up to 15 minutes. The first test flight was conducted on Jan. 11, 2018, and was made via remote control with a 176 lb (80 kg) ballast. The first manned flight was Feb. 28, 2018. Jetson Aero is currently working on a carbon fiber monocoque (the chassis being integral with the body) pre-production prototype.
