On the 30th April 2016, Franky Zapata demonstrated the update of the ZR Flyboard water jet hoverboard with his jet powered Flyboard Air that can travel at 90mph (150km/h). Making a new world record for the farthest distance travelled on an untethered hoverboard that actually flies. He travelled on the Flyboard Air a staggering distance of 2,252 metres (7,388ft) off the French Atlantic coastal town of Sausset-les-Pins.
The Flyboard Air has a top speed of 150km/h (93,2 mph), and a flight time of approximately 10 minutes. Not bad for a prototype. Now you can experience a drone’s eye view for yourself.
