could you separate the motor support from the HOVER3 file ? So no support needed
can i gET A LIST OF THE SUPPLIES U USED and how did u make the rear fan turn with ease
I would like to build one of these. I have an donor mSR. I have a couple of questions. First, what size props did you use for each motor? Also what infill and material did you use when you printed? Is all of the plastic in the front needed for balance? Thanks

Instructions

Take extra steps to get a good stick. Printed with fan and supports. The Skirt is made from a freezer bag that I sealed with a lighter. Both the electronics and skirt are attached with outdoor double sided tape. The holes holding the steering out drive need to be drilled out. Also, place battery in the front right corner for balance.

I have 2 Blade MCX's that I'm going to try to make this work with. I assume you are using the MSR tail rotor blade and a spare blade for the 2 blades on your hovercraft?
Just added a new enclosed out drive STL, enjoy!
What CAD program did you use to make this?
SketchUp. Its a fun and easy program.
Very cool - I've been wanting to do this for a while.

Are you using the mSR board for stabilization of any sort? If not, I'd bet any of the EFlite/derivative brands of UMX electronics would work provided they can drive two motors and have two onboard linear servos.
Not using the gyro at all, just had a couple boards laying around with bad gyros. I only use one servo, got any recommendations on boards?
Awesome! Do you have any video of it?
Thanks! We have a couple videos of it on our FB page. We'll get a video added here soon!
Cool. Have you tried it on grass? Or on water? Just curious.
