The Guinness World Records has announced that the longest flight on a real life working hoverboard was pulled off by Catalin Alexandru Duru, Kudos buddy. He rode 905 feet and 2 inches to achieve the record.
This hoverboard is powered by an insanely powerful quadcopter which is quite insane on it’s own. It’s not hovering like we saw in Back to the Future but come on this is one is real and it actually works.
The creator of the board said:
“The first real-life hoverboard. The machine was built and designed by me, Catalin Alexandru Duru. I am the first man to create and fly a working prototype.
“I will showcase that stable flight can be achieved with a machine one can stand on and control with their feet, just like in the movie “Back to the Future Part II”. In our case, the machine is propeller-based.
“The prototype can be used anywhere, but is usually tested over water because of how dangerously high it can fly (which is ironic considering that the movie joked that it can’t).”
