The Zapata JetRacer

Franky Zapata, the creator of the JetRacer, is inviting people to try out his latest flying machine – the JetRacer – to make personal aircraft a reality.

The JetRacer is a ten-micro-turbojet-engine vertical take-off and landing (VTOL) aircraft, controlled by two joysticks. Although it looks like a brick, this particular drone is capable of excellent mobility. A video of flipping and turning the aircraft at speed while flying over water shows that it’s very maneuverable.

Zapata has a long history with flying machines. He became the first person to cross the English Channel – roughly 22 miles (35 kilometers) wide – on a hoverboard created by his own business, Zapata, in August 2019.
