SkyRunner Flying UTV Review + Video






Quote:
We take to the skies in a UTV that flies

Next level is a term thrown around a lot every time a manufacturer introduces a new vehicle platform to the market. Typically that translates into a boost in horsepower and more suspension travel. But a flying UTV takes next level to the next level. Thatís what SkyRunner LLC has accomplished with its new vehicle platform dubbed the SkyRunner, which cleverly combines the worlds of aviation and off-road into a single, multipurpose and action packed adventure vehicle.

Is it an aircraft or an off-road vehicle?

Well, itís both. Technically speaking, the SkyRunner is an FAA approved light-sport aircraft that is classified as a powered parachute. We know what youíre thinking; visions of small, tricycle-like machineís with large props on the back that are capable of flight but really serve no purpose on the ground are probably filling your head. The SkyRunner is not that at all. In fact, where it might be appropriate to view it as an aircraft that can also venture off-road, we would argue that it is much more of an off-road vehicle that just so happens to fly.

For that reason, limiting weight was a huge concern in the design process and that translates into a trimmed down figure that would almost appear naked compared to the current crop of UTVs on the market. Carbon fiber body paneling dresses the 4130 chromoly chassis and lends to a sort of James Bond meets Xander Cage look. The cockpit, with its array of gauges, displayís and switches might seem a little overwhelming at first, but when you consider the SkyRunner has two separate control systems, there is some method to the madness.
