Flying bicycle survives unveiling without horrible crash
Is it a bike? Is it a plane? Three Czech companies have teamed up to make a prototype of an flying bicycle that successfully took off Wednesday inside an exhibition hall in Prague and landed safely after a remote-controlled, five-minute flight.
Looking like a heavy mountain bike, it weighs 95 kilograms. It has two battery-power propellers in the front, two in the back and one each on the sides. A dummy rode in the saddle. (Photo: MICHAL CIZEK/AFP/Getty Images)
