Re: What type of fans should I use for lift and thrust?

What type of fans should I use for each lift and thrust? If possible, can anyone provide examples of those certain fans(like pictures, websties, etc.)? We're using drone fans for both lift and thrust, works pretty well, but i recommend you experiment. https://i.pinimg.com/originals/84/16/74/8416748...

Re: Questions about wires

What type of wires should I use for building the Hovercraft?
Depends on the batteries you're using. Just match the gauge of wire to your batteries and motors and you should be fine.

Re: Hovercraft B/C

Does anybody know how to mount your motor or change your design so that when the thrust fan is turned on, it doesn't imbalance the craft and cause it to tip forward and fail?
