Just to let you know that I've now completed designing the Fusion-400 model hovercraft, prototype test have gone well and the craft is now in full production. The blue part is a foam carving to create the initial mould tool for the prototype.
The Fusion is based around the 400 motor, it is around 400mm long and will sell for £40 (well £39.99), the craft will be available in White, Black and a few in Clear so that you can paint the inside as you like. The motor is mounted directly onto the Duct, so not additional mounting bracket is required. A standard 5" propeller fits perfectly inside the duct.
The battery tray will take a standard 7.2V model car power pack, but a 9.6V 2/3 Sub C powerpack (£13 to £15) will make the craft perform better, if you want to storm along then a 11.1V lipo pack will make the craft fly. With the larger packs the Rx and Esc is positioned just out side the battery tray.
A standard brushed motor available from J. Perkins (Have these in stock priced at £4.75, brushed ESC @ £11.95) will give very good performance, but if you want a racing craft then a brushless motor is recommended, these are priced at around £20 with a 40Amp ESC priced the same.
There will be a number of these on show at Wickstead Park Meyhem weekend on the 29/30 May 2010.
Postage for the Fusion will be £5.50 (subject to change), or you may arrange to collect if local. Should you wish to order one then please e-mail me on firstname.lastname@example.org
Thanks for looking. Now then what shall we design next..............Flying Fusion?
