Grandad's Junk Pile Projects #16 Interplay Hovercraft Kit RC conversion


TheEnragedGamer asked if I could revisit this project and convert it to RC. I wasn't sure if I still had it as I hadn't been very impressed with the build but I found it in my junk pile in a rather sorry state. I spent a little more time putting it back together, used a small LiPO to power it and sorted out the air skirt so it works better than it did in the original video. I have used a lightweight 2.4GHz receiver that has onboard servos to give us rudder control. It is not perfect but it does work.

If you have a question it is probably worth reading this video description first because the answer may already be here. To help you find my videos I made two search guides https://youtu.be/ceBSOoOHcgw or https://youtu.be/Zj4UgwkwYRk or checkout my playlists page https://www.youtube.com/user/GrandadI...


These are the eBay listings that I used. They are old and probably no use to you but they may help you to do a search. Doing your own search will allow you to find similar items with different specifications and prices.

Generally my projects are for my grandchildren to enjoy. OK, I enjoy them too. If anybody else likes them, that is a bonus. I like to keep my work as simple and basic as possible so that it can be copied easily and improved by anybody who wants to try themselves. I recycle or repurpose items rather than buy new and when I do buy I like to keep it cheap.
