About the machine, Zhao revealed that the aircraft could currently carry a load of up to 220 pounds at a maximum speed of about 45 mph. The flying scooter's propellers are affixed to a central frame, and it is designed to be as lightweight as possible.

He has named the machine 'Jin Dou Yun', which means 'a cloud' ridden by Chinese superhero Monkey King.

It is reported that after trialling his device with more than 1,000 test flights, he was finally able to create his flying scooter.
