I signed up for the newsletter and they just sent out an email. They are going to be at some air show (Oshkosh 2013) in Wisconsin if anyone is interested in checking that out or lives around there. Said they would have some demos of the board.
Here's a paste:
Firstly, thanks for signing up at www.E-Boards.com
and monitoring our progress. We shall start to send out frequent updates as we start to approach the release date for E-Boards, powered by Yuneec International.
Yuneec is an innovative company employing hundreds of talented engineers and technicians developing cutting edge products originally in the field of electric aviation. Our eSpyder and E430 have achieved major milestones this year and been awarded regulatory certifications. It is this same aeronautical engineering expertise that we have applied to our E-Boards, the first product from our ground division.
From July 29th to August 4th, we shall have a booth at Oshkosh 2013 where will be be exhibiting our electric aircraft and we shall also have E-Boards on display and encourage feedback from visitors to the stand.
How important is speed to you? Consider that some electric skateboards are capable of doing quite high speeds approaching 30mph / 48km/h. Legislation in many countries and states does not permit use on public roads, so sidewalks, footpaths and bike lanes would be where E-Boards are used and so responsible use of speed is important. What maximum speed would satisfy you for your needs?
We expect our final production E-Boards to be under 6kg. What weight would you feel comfortable with?
We can dream as well ......if only E-Boards had the highway to ourselves - or is it a runway
