I got a lot of toys recently, the are some cardboard boxes left, so i decided to make a cardboard hovercraft.
Step 1: Find the Materials You Need
-a cardboard box
-a Echine micro quadcopter
-a quadcopter trasmeter
-a quadcopter battery 1s 300mah
-a bottle of nail polish
-a piece of paper
-a rubbish bag
-a marker pen
-a cutting plier
-a circle guide
-a hot glue gun
Step 2: Make the Main Body
-draw the diagram shown in the photo on a piece of paper
-stick the corners of the paper onto the cardboard with masking tape
-cut the main body out with a cutter
-fold the cardboard inwards and hold it in place with tape
Step 3: Disassemble the Copter
-Cut the propeller guard out with a cutting plier.
*be careful, don't cut the tiny wires!
-Remove PCB from the main housing with a screwdriver.
-Apply tiny drops of hot glue between the wires and the PCB.
*I have a bad experience that my wire broken after several plays & they are very difficult to solder back together. So it's very important to apply glue for reinforcement.
Step 4: Connecting the Copter With the Main Body
-use a marker to draw a rectangle shape
-cut the rectangle out
-place the front motors into the two holes
-then reinforce it with two drops of hot glue
Step 5: Making the Air Bag
-place the main body on the plastic bag and draw a slightly bigger
-fold the access part of the bag upwards and tape it onto the side of the main body
-seal the holes at the corners with tape
-draw some reference points on the plastic bag and cut through them with a cutter
Step 6: Place the Fins
-cut two gaps at the corners in the rare end
-fit the two fins inside the gaps
-reinforce them with hot glue
Step 7: The Boosters
-use hot glue to glue the rare motors to the fins
Step 8: How to Play
-plug the battery into the chip
-bind the controller to the hovercraft
-ready to play!!
