Newbie here on this forum. I'm into R/C tanks 1/16 Hen Long.....
Anyhow, my brother bought this hovercraft at Kohls over the christmas holiday and the center motor stopped working. I pulled the motor out and it turned out to be bad. I had another one exactly like it laying around and I soldered that one in. Put it back together and it works but not much air flow. I know the motor was fast, I tested it.... but when I tried the hovercraft out and it won't move with props blowing in the back. The motor doesn't seem to perform as well now that it's in the hovercraft. Here's a youtube of the exact one, but it's not my video. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AquiMfT1nIk
It also had another problem, the circuit board. One compenent was right next to the plastic housing and it got hot and melted the plastic a bit. Wonder if that could also be part of it's problem?
Anyone have one or know much about them?
