Malloy Aeronautics Hoverbike Prototype, Autonomous Test Flight!

The Malloy Hoverbike is a single seater turbo-fan VTOL powered quadrocopter. But unlike a helicopter it can operate safely close to the ground and around people, and can be done so, with little or no training.It can carry a 130 kg payload at a speed of 96 km/h and has a ceiling of 3,044 meters.

Malloy Aeronautics Hoverbike – prototype no: 03 – on an autonomous mission, conducted testing and evaluation.This is our 3rd prototype. She is nearly a 1 1/2 years old.You can also see in one of the photos in this video three of our vehicles, P2, P3a and P3b.

This vehicle is all electric, and can carry 130kg. It has shrouded rotors for safety, a redundant drive system (she’s a Quadrotor, but there is more going on under her skin than can be seen), and can be operated using a tablet, phone or laptop.

This vehicle has been designed to carry a human, however we are still conducting testing to ensure the vehicle has greater safety and reliability than a typical helicopter (this is the cool thing about it also being a drone – we can conduct 1000’s of hours of flight testing before a single person gets on).
