Californian manufacturer Aerofex have developed a speeder bike just like the ones in Star Wars: Return of the Jedi - and they require just two days of training to fly

Have you ever watched Star Wars: Return of the Jedi and wished you had a hoverbike like the ones Luke and Leia race through the forests of Endor?
Well, with the Aero-X hoverbike you'll soon be able to - and you'll only need a weekend of training to be able to fly it.
The futuristic vehicle, which boasts carbon fiber rotors instead of wheels, will be as easy to ride as a motorcycle, but with speeds of 42 mph, it may not be ready for the terrain of Endor just yet.
In 2012, Aerofex Corp released a video of the bike hovering above a dry lake bed in the Mojave desert, it can fly up to 9ft above ground and is steered like a motorbike.

 

 

The Aero-X can only transport two people at a time - not great for the school run - and can run for about 75 minutes on a full tank of fuel - but it still looks awesome.

Aerofex founder, Mark De Roche said: "The Aero-X's intuitive operation, low cost, and unique capabilities make it suitable for disaster relief, search and rescue, and patrolling borders and game parks."

 

Aero-X will weigh approximately 140kg and carries up to two people
