Twin-Rotor Tuesday: Brit Madman Builds "Hoverbike"

English plumber-turned-Youtube sensation Colin Furze built a hoverbike. The contraption you see above kinda-sorta works, which is amazing given how difficult getting the thrust and center-of-mass balance on a thing like that can be. Hopefully he continues to play with it to put it to good use…whatever that might be.
Click through below for a three-part building series on how he did it. His contraptions are great, but the literal “guy in a shed” building/fab tips he has are great.

      Based on everything this guy’s done, I have no reason to doubt this is real.

    Future Darwin Award winner right dang there. The only thing out of place is, I don’t see him handing his beer to anyone.

      You gotta see his whole youtube channel.
      Also, he already has a kid, so Darwin ineligible.

    Dang, I’ve been an officer worker for too long if my first thought is: “That looks dangerous”, just a split second before: “This is cool”.

    i find Colin Furze hard to watch. like, the stuff he does is cool, and i am pretty sure i would like him in person, and i am so happy that he exists, but i physically recoil at his videos.
