'Sup Joel!
Is this a 'single engine' type with an air scoop in the prop wash for lift? If so, the drawings look good( well, the drawings are ok, but the ideas are good! LOL) What are you planning to use for a skirt? I tried one of these once, mine was dual motor, one for lift, and one to push the craft. Fun! Keep us posted! Sean

what are you having trouble with? the skirt, frame, lift fan, thrust, or what? hmm.... perhaps you could label the pictures?

PS: r/c hovercrafts are quite similar to the full size models (I know, I've built one) so, I'm sure you can find a forum, I can't think of the one at the moment...
