The Hoverboard Distance World Record Smashed.

Representing the ultimate form of personal freedom hoverboards for now remain a dream but many people are working hard to keep the dream alive, Hendo included. Catalin Alexandru Duru is another such individual, having spent the past 12 months working on his own propeller driven hoverboard he has this week proven his tech works by riding it to a new distance record for Hoverboard flight.

With Guinness on hand Catalin took to the air flying 275 meters before setting down in the calm waters of Lake Ouareau in Quebec, Canada. A record that surpassed the previous by 225 meters. Very little is known of the technology used in Catalin’s interpretation of the Hoverboard, it appears to be 4 very powerful quadcopters, but for a first official flight it seemed to work well. This may be one situation where lots of smaller propellers really is better than a few large propellers.

Presented for your viewing pleasure is the World Record flight of one impressive flying machine and its whacky pilot. Sit back relax and prepare to be amazed by the hoverboard that does more; slices dices mixes dispenses. But wait there’s more.
