This is the latest video I found on the French hover board. It seems to be done with 6-model jet engines. The backpack has the jet fuel. You can see two fuel lines going down to the hover platform. The pilot holds a throttle controller. It must have gyros for stability. And the movement is controlled by the pilot leaning directions. But the gryos prevent him from tipping too far.
If you see the jet exhaust across the water I doubt this is fake video.
Good music too!
What are those algorithms controlling to help stabilize, is it just thrust level?
No. We adjust the top speed of the small turbines on the side, and also the inclination of the turboreactors itself. So it’s like we have six systems working together plus my brain and my legs.
