It’s been a while between posts and a lot has happened in the last year, however development on the Hoverbike has been painfully slow.
It has been a great help receiving donations from all of you and injecting these as best I can into parts needed, however ~ $75 a month + my own income is just not enough to keep the Hoverbike going at any reasonable speed. I don’t want to give up on this project – its too good, and I’ve invested a lot of personal funds into it, I/we just need to recognize that more help is needed – hence this post. I have wasted a lot of time trying to secure investors and with little success, but what this project needs is many hands – and enthusiastic ones at that – to continue the build and testing, to offer new ideas and methods and bring to the table more that just one person can do.
I’m looking at moving the Hover-bike and all my gear to the UK in August this year, so if your university department, company or community engineering team want a challenge, please contact me – Chris Malloy at community < at > hover-bike.com.
Please, relevant and serious offers only – more spam I don’t need. You will need to:
- Be located in the UK – or under special cases wider Europe
- Outline your proposal – why and how your team can help
- Give a referenced background of who you and your team are, and what projects you have previously worked on
- Be willing to enter into a legally binding partnership with me (don’t worry, this is just to ensure you don’t try to unlawfully seize any assets not agreed prior to any contract between us)
- Upkeep my pledge to give away a prototype once the $1,1oo,oooAU donations ceiling has been reached on the website
That’s it really. Just a small/large team, who wants to work on something fun with lots of potential, either as a UAV or manned craft. Maybe even an ex-team from scrapheap challenge!
Please be sure, I am not seeking people to work on this for free and have me take any rewards. I am more than happy to listen to any realistic offers and work any partnership into a binding document, whether it’s factoring a university departments liability and awards, to a local community group dividing up between members.
All the best
