TSATS: hovercraft

15 posts in this topic

Hello all. This is my entry for the "To sail the Technic sea" contest. It is a motorized hovercraft with three blades on the bottom for lift and one on the back for propulsion. It also has working rudders. I'd just like to say i don't have that many Technic parts hence the colours.

It uses one M motor, one XL motor one battery box, one IR receiver and one IR remote. On with the pictures:

And a video of it working.

And thats it. Hope you liked it.

NICE! I like what you did for the button to turn the PF's on, but I tried it and that will break your pin. I had to throw mine away!
