Scorpion 3 is a single-passenger hover bike inspired by the design of a large motorcycle, it is possible to keep balance by advanced software control. He said that he is mainly developing for sports use. By the way, although the state of the outdoor flight test was released in 2016, it seems that this time it was an indoor flight test in order to avoid being affected by the wind.

Although Scorpion 3 is expected to be put to practical use, hoversurf is also researching a future taxi called Drone Taxi (Drone taxi).
