Capable of forward and reverse thrust with throttle control combined with independent lift throttle on a 4 channel radio makes this the ultimate in remote control and a very agile hovercraft.


As with all our kits it features a full size set of plans and a highly detailed CDROM based construction pack.

The CD walks you step by step confidently through the process of building and operating this powerful model hovercraft model. The manual not only provides a comprehensive parts list, instruction set and background information but also gives details of hovercraft operation and setup with 2 and 4 channel radios.


The kit features high quality parts from world renowned companies - Graupner, Du-Bro and Windsor Propeller Company.


The ElectroCruiser can be operated with a 2 channel radio controlling the throttle for both lift and thrust motors from one speed controller and a single servo for rudder control. It can also be configured for 4 channel operation using two speed controllers and one servo for rudder control, the choice is yours, the kit supports both configurations.


All in all this is a very comprehensive  package that gives all the parts to build a high performance RC model hovercraft and get you beating up your local RC boat lake or RC car track!

Easy-Build Steps

The ElectroCruiser construction is set out in a simple step by step manual - just follow each step. 

Simple Power Up

The ElectroCruiser was designed so that it does not require special batteries - it uses the standard 7.2 or 8.4 volt 1500mA/hr or greater, radio control car rechargeable batteries. These are available in most hobby stores.

Everything you need.... even the solder is in the box! 

The motor assembly for the ElectroCruiser is simple and straight forward. Electrical wiring diagrams are included on the CDROM.  It comes with its propellers and propeller gearbox ready to use - just solder on 4 wires, fit the propellers and bolt the assemblies into the Hovercraft. The cable and solder are in the box with full instructions. Also includes connecters to match the standard RC speed controller output used on radio control cars. Just solder the wires , crimp the connectors, plug it in and you're ready to hover. (note: this refers to kit option 1 - see to your left)
