Dubai’s ‘flying cops’ to soon use electric hoverbikes
The Scorpion hoverbike flies approximately 16 feet high in the air, at 70 km per hour carrying 300 kg of gear. It’s capable of clearing traffic-packed roads, but one serious drawback is the unit’s limited, 25 minute charge capacity.
Dubai police may soon use the electric hoverbikes to bypass traffic and other obstacles during emergencies. Most of them look alarmingly dangerous though, with their rotor blades that are capable of causing serious injury to anyone that may cross their path.
