Building a Hovercraft How To Plans
These free plans are to build a hovercraft. Yes. Hovercraft plans.
From the plans:
You're almost ready to believe in
flying carpets when you open the
throttle and see a 200-lb. load float
eerily off the ground. Tip the handles
slightly and you have to brace yourself to
keep this wheel-less Flying Cart from skittering
down the drive faster than you want to follow.
More—you can easily trundle a 100-lb.
load across a soft, soggy lawn with this machine
and never leave a mark.
The Flying Cart is a true ground-effect machine
(GEM). It has no wheels. It glides on a cushion
of compressed air supplied by a modified chainsaw
engine and a four-bladed wooden prop.
I built the "airframe" of ordinary lumberyard
How it got that way. The cart didn't start out
as a search for an improved wheelbarrow—it
happened the other way around. The building
itch came with the first story I read about air
sleds, and intensified with each story thereafter.
It was a challenge to build a totally new kind of
vehicle before all the development problems were
trampled to death—and all the unanswered questions
were answered—by multimillion-dollar research
