The Hov Pod SPX hasn’t got any wheels, or brakes, but can fly at a cruising height of 9 inches over any flat surface at up to 40 mph. The engine blows air into a skirt that raises you up above the surface, while more air is directed through the back of the craft to provide thrust. Steer with handlebars that change the rudder position at rear to move left or right, accelerate by using the throttle. The ride with air suspension is very comfortable, and as you float on air, you are not jolted by the surface – you can even surf the waves or sand dunes. This vehicle has full all-terrain capability. Float like a boat, fly like a plane, over sand, ice, snow, mud, water deep or shallow, low tide no problem.
