Lift system on Shuttle done.

Posted on:

Finally getting somewhere. The lift system is done and done. Just waiting on the lift fan. Once installed The engine can be fired up and the system tested. Will it work the first time? The rear thrust engine needs mounting 3 man job to lift the monster. then the rear cage can be done and the rudders fitted. Wire the rear engine mount a radiator for it. Put he prop on. build a cage/ cover for both the lift fan and the prop. then it can be tested. The paint is now done as it is going to be until it proves it works. Maybe then we’ll look at making the Shuttle pretty again. The other hovercraft in the fleet haven’t moved in a month. Busy making the shuttle go and playing cricket on a Saturday. Winter will be the go for cruises again, better weather on the water, here in Perth anyway.
