whats the main body built in,  ply or  correx ? or what ?

would be interested in  knowing what its built in, always thought about doing a 'hovver' - mind you being a yorkshireman i usually build in mateirals  that are no longer needed from work !!!!

i dont think lego is light enough for a hovercraft ! :}

she has two motors one for lift and one for thrust lift is an AXI brushless out runner 2808/16 driving a 8x4 prop cut down thrust is a Fusion outrunner 353505 driving a 9.5x5 prop.The esc's are two (one for each motor) fusion brushless about 60 amp batteries are two (one for each motor)9.6v 4600 nimi lift motor will last for 20 approx thrust depends on how fast i go at a guess i would say 10 mins flat out 15 mins taking it easy

she is built form 8.0mm ply on balsa frames and some sheet balsa is used as well as evergreen plastic strips for some of the detail.No lego would not be light enough i have built a small model from correx before but i like working with ply rather than correx

below is a video from the first time i tried her out since then a wider blade lift prop has been fitted so she works better she also has working lights for night sails etc see attchment
