Building a Green Goblin-Esque Hoverboard Using 10 Electric Motors
Everyone wants a personal hoverboard of their own that they can fly around; however, not everyone has the skills to actually make one. In this video, JLaservideo YouTube channel goes all out and actually builds a multicopter drone using 10 large electric motors and flight tests it. Spoilers: It works, rather splendidly.
As you'll see in the video, the device, which will give you flashbacks to Back to the Future and that Spider-Man movie with Green Goblin, is pretty huge and can handle a good amount of weight.
JLaservideo explains the process of making the hoverboard step by step and goes through the obstacles he had to face. The lucky person who gets to stand on top of it only needs to push a lever to lift off into the skies.
However hard it might have been, it was probably worth all the work when he got to fly above the grass with a cool helmet, giving off Green Goblin vibes while "I Believe I Can Fly" by R. Kelly plays in the background. Definitely worth a watch, and keep in mind that the fourth and final part is on its way.
