Flying bike prototype completes successful flight

Three Czech companies have partnered to make a prototype of a flying bike. It uses an electric bicycle as its base. It actually able to fly and landed safely at its five-minute demo flight in an exhibition hall in Prague.

The weight of the bike is 209 pounds, and to fly it uses propellers in the front and at the back of the bike.

However, they used a dummy for this flight and batteries with higher capacity would be needed for an actual manned flight.

Although batteries with higher capacity is already available, they are so big and heavy and will give the bike a hard time to stay flying in the air.
