The UH-10F Entry Level Hovercraft is a great design for first time builders, high school technology classes and home science projects. First time builders and students get hands-on experience in woodworking, fiberglass, small engines, propellers, as well as gaining knowledge in engineering, aerodynamics and physics.

A single 10 hp horizontal shaft engine turns a two blade 36-inch ducted propeller that provides both lift and thrust. This single engine design is both simple and reliable, and has been successfully built and flown by students in hundreds of schools and colleges throughout the world. The 10F complies with the Hoverclub of America Entry Level racing requirements.

It's built from a foam and plywood sandwich construction. The combination of these materials makes a low cost, high strength composite structure that is un-sinkable.

Driving the craft is easy as it has only two controls; steering and throttle. Slowly advancing the throttle will bring the craft up on cushion. Adding a little more power accelerates the craft. Speed is easily controlled by increasing or decreasing engine rpm. First time pilots can learn to operate the craft in a very short period of time.

The craft will operate on land, water, snow, ice, mud, parking lots, football fields, ponds and rivers. Speed varies over each terrain. Smoother terrain will allow the craft to achieve higher speeds while rough terrain will slow the craft.

The Hoverclub of America has designed a racing program specifically for the 10F & 10F2 Entry Level Hovercraft. The program is designed to allow close competition between individual competitors, High Schools and Universities at a very affordable price. See Hoverclub of America for more information.
