Mendiola flew a Filipino-made hoverboard for 2,894 meters at the Subic Bay Freeport Zone on July 10, 2021. The Pinoy innovator used the Star 8 Green Technology Corporation’s electric flying hoverboard (e-Hoverboard) and the total flight time was 7 minutes and 22 seconds.
Mendiola’s latest feat broke the current Guinness record for the farthest hoverboard flight achieved by Jet ski champion Zapata who traveled 2,252 meters with a jet-powered hoverboard in Sausset-les-Pins, France in 2016.
Kyxz Mendiola, a Filipino drone and flying car enthusiast, is currently working on the Philippines’ first-ever flying e-car or Electric Manned Aerial Vehicle (EMAV) with Star 8 Corporation. This inventor said he was inspired by the movies he had seen, thereby creating this flying electric car.
