Flyboard Air: Franky Zapata develops his own jet-powered flying hoverboard that actually work

French jet ski champion Franky Zapata has joined the race to build the first commercially viable hoverboard, unveiling a test flight of a new jet-powered flying propeller device. Using Jet Engines.

The Flyboard Air, which took four years to develop, can reach heights of up to 10,000ft and hit a top speed of 95mph – but its onboard batteries contain only enough power for a 10-minute-long flight. Very few details have been released by Zapata Racing, but the video shows Zapata pressing a joystick wired to the base in order to control the direction, height and speed of the hoverboard, which is powered by jet engine propulsion.
