I hope you liked it, some of you asked me to make an step by step instructable. I thought that was a good idea and I decided to make one.
In this instructable I will show you how I build my hovercraft, powered by electric motors and controlled by a radio transmitter. I hope you learn from it so you can make it too.
PS: sorry for my bad English. I'm Dutch but I will do my best to make everything clear. If you have questions or if I'm not specific enough about something, leave a comment and I will try to answer it.
Step 1: Materials
Thrustmotor: NTM Prop Drive 28-26 1350KV / 310W
Liftmotor; Emax BL 2215/25 950KV Outrunner Brushless Motor
(search for it on google, it's not on HobbyKing, but there are many other sites selling this motor. You can use another motor as well, same goes for the thrust-motor.)
2 x HOBBYWING SKYWALKER 20A ESC
(search for it, it''s on different sites)
A radio transmitter/receiver to controll your motors, doesn't matter which transmitter you use.
Silicone wires (one black and one red)
3mm Heat shrink tube (one black and one red)
(for connecting your your battery to the wires)
2mm Gold Connecters for connecting motors to ESC's:
And a soldering iron for soldering everything together!
Almost there... the final things you need:
For the body I used styrofoam (XPS)
Polyethylene lightweight tarp is used for the skirt.
Glue for your foam boards
Enough materials, time for the next step!
