Will it work with 2 Leaf blowers?
it would probably be better w/ too... though harder to control and heavier. idk.

why would you need two?
one for lift and one for thrust.
that would work

Awesome. I'm going to make a 5 person one with 6 leafblowers for lift, 3 for thrust, and one on each side for turning. Then ride down the street on it playing dance music.
OMG Kari Byron!

I created one in seventh grade. No offense, but a smaller bag would work better
there's is fine I think, they just need to tape it down closer to the edge

Nice work!! That looks like a very stable design. Congrats on the build.

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.
I was thinking the same thing. Class project. What an awesome teacher to choose I' for a display medium. I would think it a good oppotunity to create some type of school section, to conglomerate these together as not to let them spread apart into I'bles infinity, if you get my drift. Perhaps that would encourage more schools to use us. If not, then I would be more than happy to establish a group dedicated to display school projects. I would add this group as the first.... Anyway a lil' food for thought.
well done!!! great work :)
