You, too, can “slip the surly bonds of earth” with this Honda Ruckus scooter and powered paraglider combination. The Ultralight Flying Scooter folks will sell you this add on kit for your 2006 Honda Ruckus giving it the ability to fly.
I actually came across this last year but the web site had no actual photos or video showing it in the air so I was a little reluctant to call it a flying scooter. Well, they have photos and video now proving it flies so here it is.
How practical is it? How well does it fly? Although it gets off the ground it might be a bit on the edge of practical. If you want a powered paraglider there have been kits available for some years. The web site says you shouldn’t drive the scooter down the road with the flight kit attached so what have you gained? If you have to transport the flight kit separately to some suitable takeoff and landing area you still need an extra vehicle so this isn’t exactly something Lara Croft would use to get away from the bad guys, firing up the engine, unfurling the canopy and flying off. I would also think a normal paraglider performs better without the weight of the scooter.
If you look at this for what it is, the culmination of someone’s desire to make a flying scooter and then going into his workshop to prove it can be done, it appears to be a success. If you’re looking for a practical flying scooter (isn’t everyone?), I’d wait.
