Hover bike is a flying robot, which works on the principle of a combination of lift generation as in a helicopter, and maneuvering of a bike. With this technique humans will experience a new way of flying and driving in mid air. The hover bike has the ability of having Vertical Take-Off and Landing (VTOL), which is the general way of lift generation by helicopters. A well designed hover bike will be able to take a slow VTOL due to the low area of pressure distribution by the blades, and also due to high amount of weight concentration mostly near the center of gravity (C.G) of the body where in almost 60-70% of the total load is placed which includes motor weight, frame weight, battery weight.

The main challenge which comes before any engineer making this kind of vehicle would be to overcome the issue of weight in order to have a sustainable lift, which in turn helps in having a pretty good hovering capacity at required amount of height. Designer has to consider a very effective design which is able to overcome any load parameter when working in various conditions. Next concern is the fabrication, the material used for building the equipment. This would require consideration of plenty of parameters to decide which material has to be selected and also to ensure a better tenure, than any other factors in its comparison and this hover bike has equipped with bomb dropping mechanism.
