Need to think about it lol.

I know what you mean , I like to try it all - even tried an RC blimp and an RC kite .
Made a couple of skirted hovercraft , they worked fine but liked to flip over backwards when they get going to fast . The skirtless one is a simple build and can go REALLY fast without flipping over - but doesn't do well on rough terrain .
RC blimp (1 min 47 sec)

RC thrust vector kite (1 min 55 sec)
