Hoversurf Scorpion

Hoversurf even recommends that pilots wear special motocross boots, trousers, jersey, knee pads, gloves, a chest protector, an eye guard and a helmet when riding the Hoversurf Scorpion. That's great, but what about the glaringly obvious huge safety hazard from the exposed propellers, which are not facing downwards, as they are on any other similar drone-based flying machine? New Atlas' Loz Blain put it best when he said, "the Hoversurf Scorpion is a motorcycle-styled hoverbike with four high-speed props mounted right at leg-amputation level".
