A 40-year-old inventor in the Philippines apparently set a world record for the longest flight on a hoverboard.
Kyxz Mendiola launched his personal plane, called Konbeto Milenya, from a beach and flew for seven minutes and 22 seconds, a distance of 1.79 miles / 2.89km.
Footage shot in Zambales province on July 10 shows the Filipino, who is a drone and flying car enthusiast, gliding 30 feet above the ground, over the water and fishing boats, as the water ripples below. .
The flight reportedly surpassed the Guinness World Record set in 2016 by Frenchman Franky Zapata, who flew a jet hoverboard at a distance of 2.25 km.
“Our flight data indicated that we actually achieved 2.89 km. I couldn’t believe it, ”the professional hip-hop dancer and inventor said delightedly. “It was more than we expected.”
“Our original goal was to fly 2.5 km. It was so overwhelming and I couldn’t believe it would go this far. “
The feat has yet to be officially recognized by Guinness, but it has already been submitted by the team of inventors for validation.
“My message to the young generation is not to let other people stop you from achieving your dreams,” Mendiola said.
