The CREATION of finger flyer
Finger Flyer Hoverboards are a fun, new way to experience quadcopter drones born out of our shared passion to inspire curiosity and foster interest for flight technology. We were driving around our home town, riding the wind with our hands, dreaming of an exciting, novel way to intuitively control the quadcopter drones that we were researching.
Then it struck us, what if the best controller was no controller at all. With sensors for gesture control, altitude hold for steady flight, and a fingerboard for loads of tricks, Finger Flyer Hoverboards offer a truly one of a kind experience! They're fun, safe, durable and have something to offer all ages! Introducing the world's first hoverboard for the hands!

Jacob Parker is the inventor of Finger Flyer Hoverboards. Jacob obtained three patent applications for Finger Flyer technology and helps run the manufacturing supply chains in the USA and China. When Jacob was younger, his first quadcopter drone helped foster his fascination with flight technology, which ultimately helped guide him into his studies at Georgia Tech and his full-time career as an engineer for The Boeing Company. Jacob hopes to help foster that same sense of fascination and passion for engineering and technology while offering a fun, novel experience.
