If you put one honking big fan for a cushion of air together with two smaller fans for some directional control, what you’ll have, apart from the potential to turn a bad hair day into a nightmare, is a vehicle that’ll cruise from land to water and back again with ease.
Even today, people are fascinated with this simple, yet astounding ability of hovercrafts to tackle land, water and pretty much everything else in between. Maybe it’s the fact that some of us, as kids, witnessed first hand this cushion of air effect as part of some primary school science lesson
Whatever the reason for our fascination, this rechargeable radio controlled version will offer hours of play on bitumen, concrete, tile or other smooth surfaces. Give the Tornado R/C Hovercraft some room to move and its two turbo-fans will have it zipping along at a pretty decent pace.
Take the Tornado R/C Hovercraft off-road and into your nearest pond or lake and you’ll really start to appreciate the versatility of this RC toy. Everything’s included to get you hovering right away – a hovercraft with impact resistant rubber skirting, full function remote controller, 9V battery, 9.6V Ni-Cd battery pack and AC battery recharger.
Real hovercrafts are a pretty rare sight and even if you do see one, it isn’t often you’ll get to ride in it, so it makes sense to keep this remote controlled version handy whenever you get the urge to rekindle the excitement you first felt when learning about hovercrafts.
