The Hoverbike Scorpion-3 was invented by the company Hoversurf. The company comprises numerous aviation, software and electronics engineers. The video is a demonstration of the hoverbike in motion in a controlled simulation inside a warehouse. It is able to showcase the height and distance that the drone can transverse, and how the pilot can operate and control it. 

The bike is made out of a carbon fiber body with a single monocoque frame, which reduces the bike’s weight. The pilot’s seat is ergonomically compatible with the pilot’s preferred seating height. The overall dimensions of the hover bike allow it to fit in a standard doorway, and also in a normal parking slot. 

The safest flight altitude that the vehicle can travel in is 5 meters above the ground, but the pilot can adjust the height themselves for their own comfort. The maximum speed limit is 96 km/h in compliance with the requirements of the law. 

The hoverbike consists of 3 separate blocks connected through a CAN bus with an individual processor in each unit. The S3 model is also fitted with a triple security system: electronic (emergency landing, sound and visual warning system), mechanical (kill switch), and passive (embedded deformation zones, power fences)
