    Ultralight plane shops have some models.

    Same engines, same noise, same wind, same rain.

    Hi Dunc



    I've never done any cruising or used any of the intercom systems suitable for use on a hovercraft, but have you thought of using moulded headphones as used by musicians and all the motor racing guys - F1 etc?



    They can be expensive (at least 200 a pair and upto 900), but I use them all the time and they're great. You get moulds made of your ear and then the headies are custom made to fit you. They attenuate a serious amount of outside noise, which means you can run the headphones at a safe level from your intercom.



    Check out http://www.handheldaudio.co.uk



    Shure make a set of headphones called E2's which are a sort of generic fit version of the custom made ones, but a lot cheaper... http://www.shure.co.uk/PersonalAudio...Earphones/E-Se ries/index.htm



    What's more you can wear a helmet... Obviously leaves you with a mic problem....



    let me know if you try it

    They should do the job, and NiMh batteries will extend the life.

    I have a pair of shure E3c's which are about $130 american. They work very well. I have used them mowing and on planes, and when you take them off in a plane you think "man it's loud out here." I have yet to try them with hovercraft as I have yet to build mine. They come with a bunch of different styles of earpieces so you get a good fit.

    P.S. (if anyone wants to give me a free hovercraft in exchange for this bit of advice, feel free)
