Hi Guys
For those of you interested, the craft has an integrated lift and propulsion system using a 6 inch diameter 6 bladed variable pitch fan with 2 inch hoverheight .There are 46 individual skirt fingers designed cut and stitched by me and the skirt/cushion is compartmented . Craft AUW is approx 7-8lbs and can carry a payload of approx 5-6lbs. Hope this helps !

Trying to upload a vid with no success yet ! HEEEEEEEEEEEEEEELP
