Ready to be the pilot of your own Flyboard? Then the Zapata Racing Flyboard V3 is for you. Purchasing this product requires you to pass the Operator Training Course offered by Viscosity.
The Flyboard is a bolt on device that is attached to a jet ski (PWC) via a hose. The PWC (Personal Water Craft) follows the rider, permitting the freedom to go anywhere, even underwater. The thrust that comes from the PWC is run through a 180 degree adapter (which allows the rider to divert and control the device in any desired motion) and then goes into the hose that is 4 inches in diameter and roughly 55 feet long and has capabilities of putting the pilot above water 35 feet or below water 35 feet. Each minute, thousand gallons of water flow through the device and provides thrust and lifting power. The Flyboard operator is in complete control of the navigation while the throttle is controlled by the PWC operator. The Flyboard operator is secured in by bindings similar to a wakeboard and is propelled from water by jets below the device. The Flyboard is buoyant for safety, which also allows the rider to rest in the water between rides when fatigued. The use of a personal flotation device and helmet is required for safety purposes. Two versions of the Flyboard exist: the Flyboard Standard Kit and the Flyboard Pro Rider Kit. The former is a board with hand-held stabilizers, which was the original design. The latter dispenses with the stabilizers. Device power is controlled by a throttle on the PWC. The equipment may be used in two modes: The primary one requires two people, one to control the PWC throttle which regulates the power and height of the rider. The secondary mode relies on an accessory called an Electronic Management Kit (EMK) which allows the rider to control the jetski throttle.
are required to fit the Flyboard to most makes and models of PWC's. The Quick Connector replaces the PWC stock steering with a Zapata Racing version that allows for quick changes between the normal PWC operation and change over to Flyboarding.
