    Default Electric hovercraft

    I have just rejoined the hovercraft club after many years, and I was wondering if there is any interest in an electric powered hovercraft. I have been developing one for the last 2 1/2 years, And I would like to know if there are any like minded people interested in electric. I was told that Owen Ellis was one person of interest I would like perhaps to have a chat with him if he would contact me or any other person who have attempted making one.

    Hi Alf,

    I'm certainly interested in this as it seems to be to be a good fit - the idea of having some small ducted fans spread around the hull to provide lift would be a much more efficient than an integrated setup. Hopefully a battery pack weighing the same as a 503 would be viable as well!

    Regards,

    Andy
