March 1 (UPI) -- A team of Russian engineers have unveiled the latest model of their "hoverbike," an airborne vehicle inspired by quadcopter drone technology.

The Hoversurf team posted a video to YouTube showing the Scorpion 3 hoverbike, which bears a stronger resemblance to a giant recreational drone than it does to a bicycle.

The team said the hoverbike could have applications in extreme sports as well as transportation.

They said there are plans to use the Scorpion platform to build flying cars, taxis and cargo transport vehicles.
