Ride across any terrain or water with the vehicle that was virtually impossible, until today. Do what you want, whenever you want, wherever you want. Each time you ride the ArcaBoard you will find yourself at the center of a new exhilarating experience. For the first time since the bicycle, automobile or airplane, the ArcaBoard is a revolutionary breakthrough for transportation. For the first time, every person will be able to fly anytime, anywhere. The world, your world, will change forever.

The ArcaBoard is a machine lifted by 36 high power electric ducted fans with a maximum thrust of 200 kgf (430 lbs). It has a built-in stabilization unit, meaning that ArcaBoard is stable in any condition and is a very safe platform to fly on. You will be able to utilize your phone for control and navigation of the vehicle itself. But for the most intense experience you can turn off the stabilization system and steer the ArcaBoard with your body.





Body
Excellence in simplicity. Designing a shape for a revolutionary vehicle is no simple task. After thousands of hours creating and testing different structures, we came to the conclusion that a shape so simple, yet so powerful, is the answer to our quest for perfection. A shape that can provide stability, durability and safely contain the tremendous power within.





Huge Amount of Power Inside
How do you put 272 horsepower inside a vehicle slightly larger than a skateboard? The answer is with very great care. The Electric Ducted Fans (EDF), together with the controllers and the batteries, they occupy 90 percent of the space inside the board. This generates a significant amount of heat that is dissipated using a high performance cooling system. By using 36 power fans we ensure that even in the case of multiple motor failures there are enough motors remaining to take over so you keep on riding.

Back in Action in 35 Minutes
Quick and without any strings attached. The off the box charger will allow you to recharge the ArcaBoard in 6 hours. However, the ArcaDock accessory will bring the onboard batteries to full capacity in 35 minutes, faster than it takes to charge your smartphone or tablet without having to bother with cables.
