Vintage Rare Kyosho/Graupner Ishimasa 'Ducks' Hovercraft
I have a very rare hovercraft that I always wanted to convert to brushless but never got around to. It probably will even be fine with the brushed motors if using LiPos as the weight savings will be immense.
Here is a link that gives you an idea of the performance (I'm sure that is with heavy NiCads) that I found on the web:
You can also download a video of that model (again, not mine) here
I just posted actual pics. This is so very rare it's not even funny I am asking $200 picked up in SoCal (O.C.) or you pay actual shipping.
Please post here if interested and email me @ pilotfrank [at] live [dot] com instead of sending a PM

I am going to guess on the size until I can take pictures this weekend: about 20 inches long.
I remember that the motors are Mabuchi 380, and there is room under the driver for the rudder servo, a mechanical speed control with servo, and two 6 cell NiCads C size which back in the day were 1200mAh.

No extra skirts, no. You could just make your own I suppose. I have some material from a kite (kite surfing kind of kite), which would work great. The original one that is on it is in good shape though with the exception of tiny holes on the right and left side. Those can easily be patched with some light tape (kite repair tape, I have some in my kite surfing stash I think).
