UH 16S Hovercraft Kit

The UH-16S features a wide, spacious cockpit that can be enclosed and heated. The 16S is an excellent choice for hunting and fishing. A single engine provides both lift and thrust which increases reliability and reduces noise. The 16S uses many of the same drive components as the UH-18SPW.
