This is a video of Colin Furze riding his homemade 'hoverbike/human blender' (previously: this hoverbike that's supposed to be available for sale next year if the company hasn't already gone under). It looks terrifying to ride. Colin must have balls of steel or something else that can survive a hit from a propeller blade because it looks like that's exactly what's going to happen constantly. He crashes almost every time and I was waiting to just see blood splatter the camera lens. Thankfully, that did not happen. Colin says the bike is almost impossible to control which, from watching the video, looks accurate. That said, I'd be willing to ride that blindfolded in rush-hour traffic. "That's a death wish!" Death wish? Try death command. Now swing that scythe or I'll do it for you.
Keep going for the video.
Thanks to Mungo9000, who agrees the ability to steer is relatively important when you're hovering.
