Zapata Racing reports: [edited]
Zapata Racing has achieved the dream of mankind and offers you the first video of Franky Zapata flying on the Flyboard® Air.
The Independent Propulsion Unit represents 4 years of hard work for a result exceeding all records:
- Autonomous flight up to 10,000 feet
- Top speed of 150km/h
- 10 minutes duration
Although it is still in prototype phase, it has exactly the same behaviour as the WFD Flyboard® Pro Series.
