The new web page format includes many dropdown boxes that do not work with the ipad. The ipad does not support a "hover" event so when you to select a dropdown item it doesn't work. Did not have this problem with previous website. I know that there is a limited app for the iphone but it does not appear appropriate for the ipad. This makes it virtually impossible to navigate instructables on the ipad.

Australian Christopher Malloy has built what seems to be a working hoverbike. Built in his Sydney garage, with a custom carbon-fibre frame and a BMW engine, the machine is being touted as "Star Wars Speeder bike Mk1". Currently restricted to tethered flights of a few inches altitude, Malloy claims the bike feels stable, and is just waiting permission to undertake untethered tests. 'I am still ground testing at the moment only because I'm not 100 per cent sure what will happen so the straps are there to cover the unknown. I haven't had the pleasure of flying round the countryside yet. 'It is quite stable and doesn't want to tip over but if something unplanned happened during testing I wouldn't want to break the prototype. 'The Hoverbike was built with safety in mind so at least three components have to fail before you might have a serious airborne failure. 'There are also two explosive parachutes attached to the airframe and of course the rider could choose to wear their own parachute too. He predicts: 10,000ft altitude. 100mph 92 mile, 45 minute flight on one tank £45,000 pricetag The hoverbike should also have "ultralight" status - at only 270kg, under US regulations, no pilot's license would be required. Since it has no driven wheels, it shouldn't require a road license either...! Malloy is a former helicopter pilot, and says those skills are helpful when flying the hoverbike, but also says that the unique craft ultimately needs no more skill to fly than a motorbike, with speed and direction being controlled by a mixture of throttle and body-posture. As soon as I win the Lottery, I know who is going to get a knock at the door... Via Daily Mail

I have an old but working hover mower (Flymo). How could i turn this into a vaccum device to suck up dog poo in my garden ? This isnt the model I have, but it works in the same way. I can get my hands on plastic pipe duct tape etc, and obviously it would work from mains power.

So I've been messing with some different visual styles for xp and noticed that none of them changed the hover color in the start menu. To me it drags the themes appeal way down. Is there a way to change it from the default highlight: img132.imageshack.us/img132/5029/whatitis.png To something like this: img691.imageshack.us/img6911681/wanttobe.png While preserving my current theme setup? If so, How? -rx

I am designing a hovercraft similar to the instructable " 10hp hovercraft ", but competly from scratch. Finding a blade big enough is becoming a problem. I had the idea of useing the 13 horse motor and pullies to power two 20" fans from a box fan. The fans power is also cut 1/3 from trust to lift. So my question is it powerfull enough to lift 250 pounds.

I really want to build a hovercraft model. Id design my own but i know id run into center of gravity issues. Id build this one www.model-hovercraft.com/2000tdx/2000tdx.html but it is too large for my likeing and storage. Would it work at 1/2 his measurements. I realize i would need to use a different size motor and prop for the duct. I would probably use the same size motor but half sized prop for propulsion because me gusta( i like) fast.

Would it be possible to make a plane that can hover (helicopter style) in the air using three turbo fans or turboprops (two big ones on the sides to lift the aircraft and one on the back to steer) I was just wondering if that would be possible, not that i even have the tools to try it out. I just have a hobby of speculating about these things. If it would really be tried in the near future, it would be a great alternative to an attack helicopter! See this link for a good example how it would be like: http://cnc.wikia.com/wiki/ORCA_Assault_Craft . Please do not take this question to seriously, I am just an ordinary knexer and so i'm not going to do anything with this. But I was just wondering...

So I took apart my old vacuum today and took out the motor with the impeller and everything. I put it into a housing and made a little jet car by strapping it to a skate board, which worked pretty well. I got bored the second I figured out it couldn't push me though. XD Now, I'm just wondering what to do with it. I was thinking maybe a hovercraft, but I don't have a second motor to use for propulsion. (plus, I don't think it would be as fun as one without cords to have to drag around.) So my question is... what should I do with it now? As of now, it doesn't really have a use other than looking and sounding awesome.

OK I had this idea. I was online and thought up this idea for an anti gravity machine. This is it: use extremely static negatively charged materials for anti gravity. It could work the same way lightning clouds do. The base of the cloud is negatively charged and the ground become positively charged. Now if the material of the anti gravity "thing" is charged with static electricity, wouldn't it repel the ground? Now I am by far no expert in any of this...I just thought it up. What do you guys think?

When you go to a page that has 'ibles listed in the block formation (the 4x3 formation) then the orange links under each ible that become underlined when you hover on them, when you hover the last line of the ible title doesn't turn underlined. An example of this is on my user profile page: https://www.instructables.com/member/Jayefuu/?show=INSTRUCTABLES&sort;=VIEWS&limit;=12 I don't see this bug when I visit a page with ibles shown in the 5x4 format, like this page: https://www.instructables.com/tag/type-id/ I'm using Windows XP w/ SP3 w/ 1024x600 res and Firefox 3.5.6

I have one of those hand-top hover-copters that sense water and hover over your hand when hydrated. My friends' got confused with what and how sensitively to sense and just kept going up and flew away. Mine looks like there's something wrong with the propeller and keeps on leaning to one side. It maybe a weight problem because it's an astronaut with propellers. We think the reason is it reacts to any remote to turn it off and gets corrupted or we just drop it and wait for it to stop hopping and turns off. How do we fix something like that?
Question by SomritS | last reply
you have an unlimited power source. now is it possible to create enough force at the right "degree" that would be repelled by the earth instead of attracted.. so like a floating magnet. but its strong enough to lift large objects..... like maybe a human?

Question by mathman47 | last reply
I bought a nice futaba controller set from Hobby Town USA and built a RC Hovercraft with it. It was a failure, so I took it apart. I now would like to tackle something easier, like an RC Car. There is less worry about weight on one of these, like there is on a hovercraft. What would be the best material to use to build the frame? I was thinking PVC, but I'm no expert. Thanks!
Question by kcls | last reply
I have all the necessary building materials (wood, plastic tarp, foam, etc...) as well as a 22 hp engine and a weed whacker engine (both gasoline). I'm having trouble figuring out what i need in terms of a lifting fan. I've determined that i need something that can provide at least 4000cfm. I've looked at industrial shop fans 20+ inches in diameter which seem to provide enough airflow to work, but I've never seen them used in my research. Can anyone help?

Hi, first off, I am aware that I can hover the mouse over the picture to see it bigger. Would it wreck your servers to make the thumbnails bigger? I am doing an 'able right now that has over a hundred pictures. It is so frustrating to work with these tiny thumbnails! Even if I can see the bigger picture by hovering. There is a lag, and it's still confusing. I don't even think I can write this instructable like this.

French artist Nils Guadagnin has built his very own hoverboard based on the hoverboards in Back to the Future II. It's pink, it's a board, and it actually does hover when placed on its platform. Integrated into the board and the plinth is an electromagnetic system which levitates the board. A laser system stabilises the object in the air. The board is hovering with the help of two CLM-1+ levitation modules made by Crealev. Hoverboard Project via geekologie

Hi, I would like to use custom CSS to enhance my instructables. It's possible to use inline css but I don't like it because it is very limited and inefficient. Are we allowed to define custom classes or import a custom style sheet and how can we do this? I'm especially need this to have hover effects and set opacity etc. For example I want to have a hover effect on the very last (inline) image link of this instructable: https://www.instructables.com/id/3D-printed-anti-spy-camera-cover/ thanks for the help.

So, i'm a star wars fan for some time now and I've always wanted to start on a dream project, i wanted to create a real life Star Wars Speeder, having the technology that we have right now i think it's possible, now the thing is, i need to find a motor(s) big enough to lift a 185lbs guy off the floor, i don't really want it to fly like an airplane but more like hover a few feet off the ground, maybe 2 or 3 feet and make it move forward... for forward movement i'm thinking of the concept of thrust vectoring. i'm still on the planning/drawing stages of it... any suggestions from the experts???

When you hover over the PDF icon a bubble says "Download as PDF for easy printing and offline viewing". I suggest you skip the "for easy printing" -- it suggests the reader waste paper for something that can easily be viewed online.

Hey there, My first post. While walking by the toy store, I saw that they had a giant dolphin(filled with air) that was swimming around in air just above the head..... so funny..a big fish swimming freely..giving you the impression that you are under water.. I could not even see if someone was controlling the motion...seemed to me that its 'altitude' and 'path' was kind of pre set and it would continue to hover until its battery ran out or something. Is there a way to build this? like fill up a ballon (shaped like dolphin) with air, and program it with some kind of bult in controller that makes it hover...? Thank you

Ok, so in the past few months I've came up with an idea for a maglev-esque flying broom design after re-watching Harry Potter. It would hover over a magnetic track using two electromagnets- one in the handle and one hidden in the broom straw. The power of the magnets could be controlled via a control panel/joystick on the handle of the broom, letting the rider control the height of the broom. I'm not sure how the speed would work, but if I understand magnetic propulsion right, it should move forward by itself. Is there any way i could get it to where the rider could control the speed? And also, I'm assuming this will cost way more than I can afford, so at the moment it is all hypothetical.

Well, the last home page change wasn't quite as successful as we'd hoped. We heard people saying that they didn't like the moving pictures, and wanted the titles visible, without having to hover. So I've just pushed out some modifications that change those things. We hope the current version is better!

If you go onto the home page, and hover over Explore, it will drop down a menu with the categories. When you click on one, it just refreshes the home page. This could be considered a fairly big bug, but not totally . Just thought I'd let y'all know.

You may have seen that Google has a crop-circle theme today, with a hovering UFO. The "l" is missing (even from the name of the image-file). A while ago, an "o" was kidnapped by a very similar UFO. Do the artists at Google know something we don't...? What letter is next?

Why does a matchstick light up when one places a coin on a plasma globe, uses a paper clip to hover around the coin while holding the matchstick alongside the paper clip? (note the video does not use a matchstick, but it still applies the same concept)
I'm finishing my first 'able. I have a zip file on one step, which shows up at the bottom of the text displaying the correct filename but when I hover over it, it consists of a bunch of random letters. Is there a way to have the downloaded filename to be the real filename? Also is it possible to position the filename elsewhere in the text? Thanks, Michael
