Hovercraft idea

#1
Hey good people of the internet.
I have been working on a RC ft hovercraft for about 2 years now. It is made out of foam board and other flight test products it only uses things that would come in a ft swappable kit. It is cheap easy to build and fun. It uses any brushless motor and a very small and cheap computer fan. I have also been working on cad plans if you are interested I would love to work on it with someone. I have been trying to get in contact with ft but have not been able to I have contacted them tho email socal ect. So if you are interested respond to this or email me at simonsaucy12@gmail.com.

And here are some pics of it

Looks like a great project to me. What is you want to contact FT about? Just start a build thread, and throw up pics and video of what you're doing and any questions you have. Do it in the one of the top couple of subjects and you're sure to get plenty of interest. It's winter. A hovercraft is an awesome winter project! (y)

Ohhh...what a great project. Been thinking about this as a project for next winter with my son. He's only 5 and too young to put a plane in his hands yet. But a hovercraft would be ideal for him.
Will be keeping an eye on this one. You look like you've got the entire base sorted.

Are the lift fans just running right off the battery input with a 3s pack or is there some semblance of control over them?
So the fans can either run directly of of the battery or in this case in using brushed to brushless ESC and hooking them up to the resiver and mixing the channles in the controller. But you can also just hook them direct up to the battery
