Real Hoverbike is Here – level 2

23-02-2017 15:00

Russian engineers created a hoverbike. You can ride it like a normal bike, fly up to 48 kilometres per hour, and go up to 10 metres.

The machine is called Scorpion-3, and it can stay in the air for 30 minutes on one charge. It can be yours for around $150,000.

Difficult words: engineer (a person who can make things), hoverbike (a bike which can hover – stay in the air and fly), charge (full batteries).

You can watch the original video in the Level 3 section.
