Electric Radio controlled hovercraft kit by Universal Hovercraft

Fun is the name of the game with this easy building model hovercraft kit. The 20MT is an all-terrain hovercraft that operates on land, water, snow, ice, parking lots, puddles, ponds, swimming pools, driveways & any relatively smooth surface.

  • Quality proven design
  • Twin fan, twin throttle control
  • 20 minute run time

How does it work?

The 20MT model hovercraft is a scaled down version of our larger twin engine hovercraft. It flies just like the full size version. A lift motor turning a 4.5 inch fan provides enough lift for the hovercraft to operate even in the roughest terrain like grass & gravel. The 6 inch thrust propeller will launch the 20MT up to 25 mph on land or water. Two vertical rudders and a horizontal elevator provide precise control in confined areas and at high speed.

Easy building hovercraft kit

20MT is an RC hovercraft and is well suited for science education projects for individual students and classes. Students learn to follow directions, use basic tools, aerodynamics, mechanics, work with composite structures & setup a basic rc system.

It’s made from foam and epoxy. Simply cut out the parts, glue them together, install hardware and start having fun. An average builder can assemble the kit in about 4-10 hours from start to finish. Only basic skills and tools are needed. All of the hard to find hardware and materials are included in the basic kit.

Perfect project for those interested in air cushion vehicles and how they work as this hovercraft is designed and built very similarly to our full size hovercraft. Building this model will help prepare you for assembling a full size hovercraft. The 4.5 inch lift system provides lift air to the hull via the lift duct and to the skirt via the air feed splitters. The bag skirt is assembled similarly to the full size versions using a light weight rip stop nylon.

Construction

Hull, ducts and controls are assembled from materials provided in the kit. All parts are glued together with epoxy. After assembly epoxy is used to coat the entire model forming a tough skin over the foam. Finished models can be painted or wrapped in vinyl for a good finish. Motors are mounted to the included propellers and installed to the engine mount provided in the kit. Standard RC gear is installed following the directions provided in the kit. High end West system epoxy for the assembly and coatings and the foam materials are of the perfect density and composition for the application.

Foam / epoxy hull. Reinforced foam rudders. Wood rod / plywood lift mount. Wooden rod duct supports. Ripstop nylon bag skirt. ¼ x 3/8 self-adhesive rubber bumper perimeter strip. 4 x landing skids. 2 x reinforced foam rudders. 1 x reinforced foam elevator. Depron foam dashboard. Foam thrust duct. Foam lift duct. All parts epoxy coated.
