The Air Cycle 410. Found one of these and recued it from a grisly fate. Three bladed fan, lots of louvers, ridgid foam skirt, opposed twin twocycle. I would like to see if anyone has any info of any type on these odd hovercraft. I'll post pics ASAP.

Keith Moon of the Who had one of these strange contraptions.

We took it back to our workshop at Osprey to sort it out.

If I remember rightly there was no skirt.

It turned on the spot quite viciously and also sandblasted all the hairs of your legs. Couldn't get over a match box.

Don't even think about going on the water!!

All around as a hovercraft it was a dismal dahlia but good fun on very smooth surfaces.

Not much else to add.

Kip

Thanks. It looks to not have very much ground clearance(cough,cough). Gonna restore it even so. Just for freak factor. Maybe add some wings with that big prop??!

Hi Do you still have the air cycle ? I don't think it has enough power to put wings on it .
