Objective: Construct a remote controlled hovercraft to compete in a class-wide battle of speed, cargo capacity, and maneuverability.
- Teams were given 3 weeks to research, conceptualize, test, and build their hovercrafts.
- Budget was extremely limited as costs came out of our own pockets.
Result: 5th place out of 30 teams
Various fan and chassis designs to provide lift.
Intermediate prototypes prior to our final design.
