And here are the rest of our attempts at ducts or the rings thereof. We 've had the 3ft fan, a 5ft UH prop and now we have a 6ft7inch prop - also UH prop - but cut and stretched a bit.
Trialing the new homemade electric reverse thrust propller ( I tell a lie- its not new! I've been working on it for 3 years.) I've named it MAN- More Alterations Nessasary. It's had 4 styles of blades so far and still counting. The hover also has an electric trim wing and- touch wood- this has worked ever since conception. I've use a window winder hidden under the seat and hooked it to a push pull cable, which is then hooked to the trim wing.I have a togle switch on the handle bars to control each of the units.
