have you even read the thread or the source link on the specs
i covered the control earlier when it was asked
its got full control via the handle bar set up..
yaw pitch and roll
here it is again just for you
How do you control the Hoverbike?
To lift off into a hover, one needs to increase the thrust via a throttle grip with the right hand - exactly the same as the throttle on a motorbike
To fly forward a combination involving an increase in thrust and the deflection of air from the front control vanes (twisting the left handle grip)
will tilt the total thrust vector forward resulting in an acceleration forwards (twist back to go backwards)
To to make the bike roll (turn) left and right, all one needs to do is push the handle bars down on the side you wish to turn (handle bars work just
like a bicycle, but with an extra axis so that they rotate up and down a little) - you could lean in the appropriate direction just like a motorbike,
but this is proving to be not as sensitive as one would expect or like.
Yaw (nose left or right) is via control vanes front and rear and actuated by turning the handle bars - just like a bike
as for dangerous for the inexperienced, you mean just like a sports bike, and we ride them every day.
of course you will need training.. but thats the same with any flying device, from a chute to glider.
but feel free to knock it
flying isnt for everyone.
