    Default whats less bover than a hover?

    Hello All,

    Well every thing i do seems to go very slowly and usually goes wrong.

    The good thing is im enjoying every second.

    Is this a character trait that is natural when doing a hovercraft or am I just strange.

    Whilst im here.

    Ran the engine for the first time in the craft today to see if the fan disapeared off.

    Had no pitch on the blades.

    Belt didnt fly off.

    But was flapping alot.

    Wondered if it was lack of tension on the belt so the bearing supports will have to be relocated.

    Then thought could it be lack of resistance due to no pitch on the blades.

    I can turn the belt through 90 degs.

    Will pitch the blades tomorrow to put some resistance on belt.

    Or i will have to reposition the bearing supports.

    Ho hum more time with sockets spanners and welder.

    oooooopssss

    was meant to say Belt.

    I used really strong duct tape to hold the fan on the hub so that wont be a problem.



    Well found out it wasnt pitch or belt tention.

    Was brave enough to run it faster all seemed to calm down.





    Ho hum back to the back garden.

    I can usually judge if a job is going well or not.



    How much blood is on the floor and how many knuckles are still intact.



    No blood then somethings gone wrong.

    No screw/nut bolts left over its gone wrong.

    Kids fed then its all gone too quick.Left something out its gone wrong.



    Well back to my garden pond.oops I meant hovercraft that acts like a garden pond at the slightest sign of rain.

    No matter How many covers I have over it.
