The Aerorunner GSX is currently in development by Aviator Cycles. All FAQ answers are based on the current design criteria. Answers could change as the Aerorunner evolves.
The Aerorunner GSX takes advantage of the latest generation of composite materials and printing technologies.
The time to fully charge the Li-poly cell batteries depends on the capacity (either 50 Ah or 100 Ah), and the current provided by the wall socket. Expect charging times between 2 – 3.5 hours.
The display located under the windshield shows the remaining battery power as voltage, remaining time, and range (based upon your power consumption). An efficiency screen on the controller displays watt-hours per mile/kilometer to guide the user when to speed up or slow down to maximize their time and range.
In addition, the specially configured Battery Management System will reduce the power available when the battery has a low charge. This gives you enough power to set you down gently. If you’re near a charging center it will reduce your altitude to an extremely low hover for safety and better efficiency.
Our vehicles are based on modular construction that makes repair work quick and easy. We are currently in discussion with potential strategic partners that have worldwide showrooms with maintenance facilities.
The top Speed of the Aerorunner is based on a variety of factors that include:
- The number of batteries on board
- The rider’s weight
- The rider’s experience
You can expect a bike capable of speeds over 80 mph in most scenarios and up to 150 mph depending on safety governor settings.
Ride time and range are dependent upon:
- The rider’s weight
- Average Speed
- On-board battery count
It is safe to assume that you can ride anywhere from 30 – 60 minutes on a single charge. Special tuning may allow you to ride longer on a single charge.
Learning to drive the Aerorunner will be a unique experience for everyone. An on-board patented driving school will teach you all of the aspects of flying the vehicle – from the first hover to carving your own path as you follow a stream in the country and everything in between.
If you can ride a bike, you can drive an Aerorunner. Thankfully, the brain box has your back if things get away from you. Release the controls, and the bike will return to a low altitude hover. If you wish, you can pre-program a destination, and the bike will take you there, and even pick you up when your business is finished.
The Aerorunner has built-in governors to protect you and your new cycle. It is designed to safely fly at a height of 3 1/2 feet. Overall, the risk profile of the Aerorunner is comparable to the risk of riding a motorcycle.
It is highly recommended you wear appropriate safety gear when driving your Aerorunner. That said, the terrain you’re traversing will determine the appropriate gear you should be wearing. For example, if you’re flying over water, you should have a flotation device such as a life vest. If you’re traversing over land you should wear a helmet and gloves, etc.
Regulations vary depending on the state or country where you reside. The bike will initially be used off-road, and may require a registration sticker/tag. Because the Aerorunner is not classified as an airplane, helicopter, or motorcycle it does not require a license for legal operation. There may be a basic test that will be necessary for insurance.
The Aerorunner will automatically self-adjust its software settings to compensate for differences in rider weight. There are no weight limitations, although flight times may vary.
Your Aerorunner can be controlled remotely when you are not on-board through our mobile app. The flight app acts like a remote control that allows you to pre-select driving routes as well as a “return to me” mode.
Because the Aerorunner is mechanically self-stabilized, winds and atmospheric conditions that would ground most airborne vehicles should not present a problem to your bike.
Depending on how your Aerorunner is accessorized, expect a bike weight of about 400 lbs.
