Picture of DIY Hovercraft

When you are a child, do remote control cars in the shop attract you? Do you feel sad when you can’t own a car and play with it? If the answer is “yes”, why not build your own remote control vehicle—a hovercraft now? You can make a hovercraft as long as you follow our manual. This task was initiated from course Vg101: introduction of Engineering at UM-SJTU Joint Institute. 5 freshmen students formed a team called "Angelnearing" to build a wireless control hovercraft. It will take two people 4 hours to finish the hovercraft.
