a great weekend project. It will take you approximately 3-4 hours of
construction time to complete it if you have RC modeling experience.
If you're a beginner in RC modeling then allow a day to get the
project completed and have your Griffon 2000TDX hovering. Remember

and read the manual for this kit HERE
RC hovercraft kit was developed by our model development team with
help from Griffon Hovercraft Ltd in Southampton, UK. This is a
faithful reproduction of the craft at 1/30th scale that
is fully operational, just like the real craft and operates with
standard, off the shelf RC equipment. Loaded with detail this
model is low cost, very easy to build and great fun to operate!
Griffon model kit features independent lift and thrust motors and
comes complete with all the parts to construct it. Included in the
kit are the motors, propellers, motor mounts, ready to fit skirt,
rudder horn, rudder push rods, full nuts and bolts kit, decal
sheet and 20 page construction manual.

Very Detailed Manual"
and read the manual HERE
will allow both seasoned builders and those new to RC Hovercraft
to move quickly and confidently through the building process. A
detailed supplement with the manual gives information on wiring
the radio and electrical components and includes electrical
diagrams with options for different radio setups.
unique feature of this model is the ability to independently
control lift and thrust on a just 2 channel radio. By using the
optional Independent Lift Control (ILCTM)
module, developed specifically for this craft, the thrust motors
can be controlled for full forward or reverse thrust and at the
same time maintaining throttle control of the lift motor. All this
is achieved on a standard 2 channel radio with no modifications
and using standard size servos and speed controllers. No expensive
mini servos, radios or battery packs are required. These features
combined with the craft’s ability to operate on water, land, ice
or snow make it one of the most versatile RC hovercraft ever

Equipment and Speed Controller Choices:
The speed controller(s), radio, batteries, and servo are not
included in the Griffon 2000TD kit. You will need to source these
at your local RC hobby store or go online to www.towerhobbies.com.
We strongly recommend the use of LiPo battery packs with this
craft due to their light weight. Light weight battery packs give
better speed and agility. The Futaba 2DR 2 channel radio is ideal
for this craft and the Tower Hobbies Intellispeed range of speed
controllers work well with the Griffon as well. You could also use an existing 2 channel radio
setup and speed controller if you have them.

Transparent Model Also Available
For educational use, a
see-through version of the craft is available that is also fully
functional. This craft is molded in
and is completely
transparent. This allows all the internal functions of the craft
to be seen.
Even the skirt is
transparent so it is possible to see into the plenum chamber of
the craft to see how the lift motor operates, the skirt inflates
supporting the craft on a cushion of air contained within the
plenum chamber. This version of the craft will operate on water or
land and can be painted using conventional RC car paints if
required when the science experiments are over! Find
