Step 2: Cut the Soap Bottle

Alright now ya gotta cut the soap bottle like in the picture, and we trimmed off a bit of the lid. It made inflating the balloon a whole lot easier! So trim both parts of the bottle then on to step three.
how doesit works? <br>does the air from the ballon go through the hole that goes through the center and push it up?
yep thats the idea!
dude...use <em><strong>scissors</strong></em> to cut the foam...*O*
lol i shoulda...i actually used my big pocket knife to cut, not that wimpy little razor blade! lol
I love these hovercraft toys, endless fun! Also, the stopper-top is a nice touch.
do u have a video of it in action?
Not as of yet...
a hole drilled through the foam slightly above the bottome could allow enough air oout to make it self propelled
Cool idea!
