The Hoverbike was designed with safety as the over-riding factor in all design and with the limited ground testing done thus far the hoverbike has preformed exactly as predicted. The bike is still in the ground testing phase, and Malloy is still in the funding phase.
This bike was built over 2 1/2 years by one person in his car garage after work and studies, and building it is only 10% of the way there.
The bike is not in the production phase yet, so they cannot give a finalized price structure, but as a guide, when they can sell at least 100 units a year, the cost with current material prices and labor will be $45,000AUD +/-$5000.
