This epic hovercraft glides over land and water, but it also soars in the air up to 70 mph. The 130-hp twin-cylinder, liquid-cooled gas engine is turbocharged and fuel-injected, helping to drive the 60” wood and carbon thrust propeller into the air. A 1,100-rpm, 34” lift fan inflates the vinyl-coated nylon skirt to help this beast hover above the ground.
The Flying Hovercraft can hit 30% inclines over mud, sand, swamp, grass, and snow, and its wings and horizontal elevator allows pilots to hop over water- or land-based obstacles up to 20 feet. The hovercraft is run on three vertical rudders based on throttle controls, and a variable drive system allows for the lift fan to make the thing hover.
