    Hi Daniel,
    Really looking forward to seeing the finished craft.
    Can I have a go please (on a tether in a circle).
    Now there's an interesting challenge!! How fast before you black out.
    Having said that, an interesting bit of fun would be a tug of war between 2 craft in line with each other both tethered to a rope around a pulley attached to a tree.
    Then you would know who has the most thrust.
    Anyone got a large pulley block?

    That's a good looking craft!
    Shame the "flag" is produced the wrong way round on the craft!
    I shall have a word with Paul (i assume its Hibby) when i see him next!
    Good luck with it though...

    I believe it's Kip's Son's old craft.
    I think it's from the mid to late 90's

    Yep it's Paul McCollum.

    Picture that Kip put up on the HoverClub website.

    Being a bit of a newbie and not knowing all the history looking at that photo, it looks as if Paul and that craft were pretty successful according to all those trophies!
    Hope you get it going as well as the original did Dan - no pressure!

    Kip, is that the craft in the "Blue Peter - Mike Oldfield" Video?

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ss42o...layer_embedded

    I have to admit, I love this video! Makes me laugh every time I watch it!

    IIRC the Lady in the film was related to you? and it was your dog in the film as well?

    Go on Kip, please tell the story, just for me!

    Fantastic!
