Flyboards fly around the sky appear in a parade to celebrate France's National Day
In France, July 14 is the ' Paris Festival ' to celebrate the establishment of the French Republic. This is because the attack on Bastille, which was the beginning of the French Revolution, occurred on July 14, 1789. At the Paris Festival in 2019, hoverboards appeared in the parade as a military technology developed by the French army and attracted public attention.

According to foreign media The Guardian, the maximum flyboard speed is 190 km.
However, it seems that you can only fly about 10 minutes at a time.
Pause over the boulevard. When you look at the movie you can see that you are moving the flyboard quite freely.
President McLon also sends a hot glance.
