    So does mine. Well the lifty does anyway, ran for two whole minutes, and the belt didn't even come off. And as long as the new recoil cup (ref AGM talk)gets CNC'd this evening, then the thrust engine can run too. Otherwise craft is gonna be a bit sluggish.

    You guys inspire me.



    I'm going to knock off early so I can go home and clear out the shed so I can start getting the hovercraft ready.

    was the look on my students' faces - the maiden voyage went very well - minor problem with the rudder cable but fixed that easily enough - we went through 8 litres of fuel in a hour or so and nothing went pop or fell off



    it's certainly as nippy as the prototype last year and it feels quick off the mark, the hull is much stiffer and less fragile, i've added flow straighteners as well



    we'll see how it fares in a race at the weekend - i'll be glad to finish a race to start with, i've learned to never assume you'll finish a race !



    is yours all sorted now ?

    sounds like you had fun then !

    no not really , found out the carbs haven't been set right but sorted that out now , just making sure the exhausts are definately clear now , all complete apart from that !

    was hoping to be there this weekend but think its cutting it fine now lol , so i'll miss this one and hope to be ready for the gang warily ( should have learnt how to drive it by then i hope lol ) , its working that the main thing now !



    glad it all went well tho , so didnt the students expect it to work then or something ??
