Hovercraft homemade - High-school Project - Full Video

This is a video of the hovercraft I built when I was a senior in
high-school. To view the condensed video, try this link:
Discovery Channel HD - Universal Hovercraft UH 19XRW Hoverwing™ Ground Effect Hovercraft
Universal Hovercraft is proud to offer the UH-19XRW Hoverwing™
ground-effect vehicle for industrial, commercial and military sales. It is
available to our customers on a ready to run turnkey basis. The
Hoverwing™, designed as a high performance hovercraft, is unique because
of the ability to add wings for flight in ground-effect.
Flying in ground-effect enables you to clear obstacles and fly over rough
water at speeds in excess of 75 mph. Cruise altitude is 2 to 6 feet and the
craft can jump up to 20 feet to clear large obstacles. Operating in
ground-effect does not require a pilots license, and the craft is
registered as a boat which brings a wide range of new opportunities to the
commercial and tourism industry.
Removing the wings from the Hoverwing™ takes just 10 minutes. With the
wings removed the Hoverwing™ converts into Sport mode, a sleek high
performance hovercraft, able to carry 4 to 6 passengers into areas that
cant be reached with any other vehicle. The Hoverwing™ can be configured
in many different ways to accommodate your passengers or equipment needs.
