Wow, with £1000 you could get a pretty decent machine but the problem is that there are not very many commercially available options out there. I'm sure Carlos will try to sell you one of his specials, but at the more available end of the market there are only a few suppliers depending on how 'ready to run' you want to go.
Example suppliers include (note, I am not endorsing any in particular):
Palaform
Ikarus
Graupner
K&S (MacGregor)
Flexitech
Goldstein Hovercraft
All Surface Vehicles
Replica Hovercrafts

Jason (JPCWebb),

Thanks for your kind words, you`ve touched my soul!
In fact, thats the second time that worldwide in public, you do it; refferring to me as "the" one (able to make a "decent" Hovercraft RC Model), again, thanks.
I liked your naming of my prototypes as "Specials", thank you again.
Probably my constant revealled work for 22 years deserve it...

Being the MHA Webmaster and identified and posting here as it, I consider your posting and attitude as an honnour. Besides the fact that MHA stills trying to ignore (me) the facts...


Right to the point:

- I DO NOT WANT to sell anything!

- In fact I would be able to make and sell something alike one of my "Specials" (RTR) for...around 1000 British Pounds but...
...Only if I had at least a 20 units granted, soon I will post some conditions for that,in the appropriate topic.

- Less than 20 units (at once) is not fair nor proffit for 22 years developping Worlds best RC Racing Hovercraft Models!

- For those (at least 20 models at once) I would give the opportunity for the ones that copy others work and life, to copy them.

- Other than that, I will not "give" for a single 1000 Pounds, my knowledge and the way to (the ones making proffits in the market) get closer than...at least 10 years performance and realism!


- I do not make toy hovercraft, I devellop real 1/4 scale racing machines!
