  With eight propellers stirring in the air and the motor roaring, a flying vehicle successfully carried its inventor Zhao Deli, who was dressed in a black suit complete with a helmet, goggles and elbow and knee protectors, into the air.

  During his childhood, Zhao was inspired by a cartoon where he saw the protagonist riding a flying motorbike. To realize his childhood fantasy, Zhao stopped all his work and sold his apartment in pursuit of his dream to build his own flying motorbike.

  Like many men, the 41-year-old native of Hunan province has always dreamed of flying in the sky one day. He aced science subjects in school and enjoyed fixing electrical appliances at home.
