How we made a hovercraft out of standard household material.

Step 1: Materials Needed

4x4 piece of plywood
5x5 piece of tarp (that doesn't allow air flow)
Duct Tape
Staple Gun
Coffee Can Lid
Jigsaw ( or other cutting utensil)
Wood Screws
Leaf Blower

Do you cut holes in the tarp and have the coffee can blow air into the tarp?

how many watts is the leaf blower?

yo... three questions how loud was it? how high did it hover? and do u think it would work outside?

1. as loud as the leafblower is (its the source) 2. about six inces from the ground or so 3. as long as the ground was flat and smooth like concrete
what if the concrete is rough? because my driveway and sidewalk have this textured concrete.
I build a slightly upgraded version in 8th grade. It worked great on sand, and even tar until my skirt popped off the bottom (too much pressure, not the tar. Fixed it, but never tested after due to parents locking it away.)
1 as loud as the leaf blower you chose to use 2 about 1/2an inch from the bottom of the skirt so it kindow depends on its size it works on any relitively flat ground so i would say yes

I'm enjoying the hovercrafts. Looks like this was a class project? Could you ask the instructor to contact to me? I'd like to know how posting on Instructables turned out.

Sure, the instructables page is our final exam. He has an account to, i will see if he will message you.
Great job... Thank you for not typing about "hope".
