6 Pictures of the Batmobile-Inspired SkyRunner, an All-Terrain Flying Vehicle

Reading Time: < 1 minute

If the Batmobile were to get a customized off-road version that had flying capabilities, it’d probably look something like the SkyRunner. It boasts a propeller on the back – also a concealed parachute-like paraglider – and when “it’s time to take flight, the wing is laid out behind the car, its propeller is fired up, then it zips along the ground until it reaches 37 mph (60 km/h), at which point the lifting force of the wing pulls everything into the air.”

Once airborne, the SkyRunner is reportedly fairly easy to control, as the pilot only needs to manage its pitch and roll. Should trouble arise, a reserve chute can be deployed.
