Twin Seater

Craft rebuilt as twin seater. Original hull design by Viper Hovercraft.com.au

Modified to lower centre of gravity and to remain floating without using the main engines power. This reduces the fuel use on the main engine. It also gives a fast acceleration and stable cruise speed.  It has a little more leg room for pilot and passengers.  Fuel tanks are under the rear compartment shelf fully contained to avoid spills and to stop free surface effect. The electrics are self contained in the engine bay inside the battery box. The weight is evenly distributed so as to balance the craft nicely.

Here we see the craft in undercoat to protect the surfaces. You can see the front compartment used for storage.
