Three Czech companies have teamed up to make a prototype of an electric bicycle capable of flying.

The bike successfully took off inside an exhibition hall in Prague and landed safely after a remote-controlled, five-minute flight on Wednesday.

Looking like a heavy mountain bike, it weighs 95 kilograms. It has two battery-power propellers on the front, two on the back and one on each side.

Milan Duchek, technical director of Duratec Bicycles, said more powerful batteries will be needed before a human can take a two-wheeled flight.

Better batteries would allow the bicycle to remain airborne for longer, with the current batteries needing recharging after just five minutes in the air.
