Use as little fill as you can get away with in order to keep the weight down. If you have to drill out the holes on the bottom, 2mm is about right, but it doesn't need to be precise.
Its printing now. very pretty print progression. what should the fill be? i guessed. hope im close!
I am going to have to drill out the holes as they got filled in starting on layer 1. what diameter should the holes be?

2) While pinching the balloon shut, put the stem of the balloon over the inlet at the top of the hovercraft. This is tricky but it can be done.
3) Place on a smooth, flat surface.
4) The hovercraft will float a short distance above the surface until the balloon deflates.
Also useful for determining just how level your table, floor, etc. is, since if there is any slope to the surface whatsoever the hovercraft will drift downhill.
Won't work well on rough surfaces like carpet, grass, etc.
