Hello all,

I am glad to present my last creation, after 22 years developing RC Racing Model Hovercraft.
Derived from last model ("20 years") witch you can see in action in this forum:
http://www.rcgroups.com/forums/showthread.php?t=1334976
and in Youtube:

Killer,
Thanks for your comments (first after 140 views of this last post...).:cool:

In fact, real performance can be seen here; performing transitions in between Water/mud/sand.:D
:eek:
This is how a "real" Hovercraft have to perform:popcorn:

I've never built an RC hovercraft, but as a teenager I worked at a lakeside marina that had the personal hovercraft for sale and rental. Loved working on them, and always had quite an interest in them as a kid.

My parents bought me a Tyco RC Typhoon back in the 80's but it never did very well on sand or water... (Yeah it was toy grade junk really) but I always had a blast with it on the sidewalks and in the Gymnasium at school.

However, this one you've built is just the bees knees! Very cool! Good work!

Thanks for your kind words.

The most recent demo (yesterday on a public Nauticmodel event)
1º Encontro de Nautimodelismo rc de Esposende - 01/02 Jun 2013.
Performing transitions between solid ground and water on a swimming pool.

That's some pretty seamless transitioning there! Looking good!

Is that full throttle? How fast does it go full bore?

#12 camoesas Jun 04, 2013 03:50 AM

Thanks.

But, in fact this transition site is not the best for performance demos. In the pool, between the solid ground and the water there is a grid with some 20 cm wide! You can see a close-up of it, in the end of the previous movie.
If you dont have enough lift nor thrust, you`ll be stuked in the grid...

Reference the maximum speed, I really dont know and dont care, my worrys are about the wole performance and realism; more than speed, moneuverability is important as well ability for transitions (amphibious capability) and the almost absence of "hump" speed, also the flotation capability...And of course, the full action pilot figure!

You can see a racing demo with two of the best:
"20 years" - twin engine
"Integrated 22" integrated as the name
