Is it possible for this model of a hover bike to work with a full mass human? Of course, you would need more batteries in that case.
The flying bike is a mostly real thing. Mostly in that it actually flies – but not with a real person.

The claim is that the bike can not yet support the full mass of a real human and the demonstration only ran for 5 minutes.
