Quad Fan Hovercraft Update 3rd April 2015

I thought I might just try twin fan RC control to steer the hovercraft. I re-used the toothbrush motors which was probably a bad idea as I had cooked them before, but they seemed to work more or less OK although still under powered for what I wanted.

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...

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.
