Let's fit a skirt to the Hover Glider


Let's see if a simple plastic skirt made from a bin liner will improve the performance. The main benefit is it can go over slightly rougher surfaces.
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...

Deslomeslager reminded me I didn't check what that red button on the transmitter does. I have checked and it is like a kill switch. When you switch on the hovercraft the lift motor starts straight away. If you hold the red button in it stops the lift motor - and everything else. That means you can stop the craft dead from a distance or set it up at a place of your choice and then walk away to a suitable observation point before starting it.

Here is an interesting review of a later version of this toy, it has the same name and comes from the same place - ToysRUs - but is clearly a newer version and you can see the large balloon type skirt http://youtu.be/SlXa8Ee_XcM

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.
