Farthest flight by hoverboard - Guinness World Records

The farthest flight by hoverboard is 275.9 m (905 ft 2 in) and was achieved by the Romanian inventor Catalin Alexandru Duru at Lake Ouareau in Quebec, Canada on 25 August 2014.

Catalin said:

The first real-life hoverboard. The machine was built and designed by me, Catalin Alexandru Duru. I am the first man to create and fly a working prototype.

I will showcase that stable flight can be achieved with a machine one can stand on and control with their feet, just like in the movie "Back to the Future Part II". In our case, the machine is propeller-based.

The prototype can be used anywhere, but is usually tested over water because of how dangerously high it can fly (which is ironic considering that the movie joked that it can't).

Props anyway to this Canadian and his "autonomously powered personal levitator" for being the inspiration to what will probably be a long summer of "man vs drone" visits to the ER. :x

If it's so good and easy why did he stop? ran out of fuel did you say, well maybe he should have carried some spare in a straw. In another straw he needed some rope and a hook so that he could retrieve his spaceship from the bottom of the lake :P

Internal combustion engines really hate being submerged in water,so does he have to drain the water out of the engines every time he lands it or is he usually able to get to land to set it down after a flight?

So went on Shazam to find out what the music is, because I have become a little obsessed with it, but gave up after about ten attempts, seems Shazam gets a little confused with the noise of the hovercraft in the back (can't really blame it) which actually enhances the song in my opinion....so if anyone wants to give it a whirl.... :P
