Speaking as a complete noob, what if propellors were fitted about where the 'ver' is painted, on both sides of the bike, with a gear system running down to the bottom of the pontoons, so that when they're lowered, the system connects to the sides of the tyre? The props might need protection, like the railings on quadcopters provide.I know, this would mean reduced clearance and greater risk of snagging, but for elegant (I think, anyway) propulsion...There's another potential benefit. If clearance is going to be reduced at the back anyway, fins, around six inches long, could be put on the front pontoons, at around the same height,so that when lowered, they would provide steering.Again, I'm no expert, and there are probably pitfalls I haven't considered, but it's just a thought.
