Awesome ! So you're thinking fast jets pretty soon - total adrenaline rush ! I have one that goes around 100 mph - I shake every time I fly it ! Quite the crowd pleaser , though !
If you have a place to run the hovercraft with a relatively clean , smooth surface ( tennis court? ) that's best . Running it in a parking lot might kick some little rocks up into your lift motor duct and nick up the prop .
There's a guy in Taiwan , Sam Wei , who made the hovercraft - and then made it FLY! Here's his video - I love how he taxis back in hover mode !
