    RE: My latest hovercraft

    Awesome. Watching with my kids; we were amazed at all the surfaces it went over. Do you have a build thread?

    RE: My latest hovercraft

    Thanks. The toy grade hovercrafts got me interested in this stuff but they just don't perform worth a poop. Sorry, I don't have plans. I don't even have pictures of it before it was completed. The only planning that I did was done in my head prior to building. It is simple enough for it not to need plans though.

    RE: My latest hovercraft

    No I really don't have any pictures. Just the video. I didn't use any kind of reverse. If I get into trouble and I don't have enough room to spin 180 degrees, I reduce hover thrust to act as a brake.

    I was not meaning to rotate the powerplant.You can add a simple closing shell behind the directional output?

    I know what you meant. I wasn't talking about rotating the motor, I meant a 180 degree turn with the whole craft.
