    I like it! Did a nice job on the finish too. What did you use for the skirt?

    The skirt was available through the Model Hovercraft Association but that was some years ago. I am sure if you contacted them they would point you in the right direction. The plan is on their website under Mark Porters page, or was but again I have not checked. The members there are very helpful so do asked them for advice.
    I hope this helps. Mike

    Thanks for the thumbs up on the video. Model Hovercraft with both lift and thrust motors I find easier to manoeuvre. Also to slow the craft you can always decrease the airflow into the skirt which deflates it and causes more drag. This model is 40 inches long by 21 inches wide so its bulk makes it easier to control. Plus of course the brilliant pilot ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚
