Engineer enthusiast gathered a flying motorcycle transformer
I'm sure many of you have heard about the project Hoversurf, which is a flying motorcycle. However, as it turned out there in the world development and more interesting: a full motorcycle-transformer that can both float above the ground and move the "normal" way to the wheels. And it uses a hybrid vehicle is a very unusual way for the flight, and it is called La Moto Volante.
La Moto Volante translated just means "flying motorcycle", and its development is worth a French engineer and inventor Louis Infirmary. This is not the first creation of the author. Previous development of LM-847 also represents a hoverbayk, but without the possibility of movement on wheels. In many ways, the new invention borrowed details from the previous project.
On board La Moto Volante has the engine of the Maserati capacity of 470 horsepower. Each wheel (a total of 4) is bonded to the general design separate lever. It had to be done to ensure that the wheel can be deployed in a horizontal plane and positioned parallel to the ground. Next comes the fun part. Unlike existing Hoversurf, using propellers, La Moto Volante has small jet turbine, which activates a driver (or in this case it can be called a pilot?) Can easily float in the air. In "the flight" state La Moto Volante structurally similar to quadrocopter four lopostyami, except that in this case, they are replaced by the turbine, giving much more power.
The project was developed in cooperation with the German company Jetcat and at the moment it is not clear whether the sample will go at least in some form of mass production. Officially, the full presentation of the devices held on 31 January next 2019, but in the meantime you can enjoy a short teaser, available below.
