Long Will it Take to Build?
Makes a great weekend project.
It will take you
approximately 8-10 hours of construction time to complete it if you have RC modeling experience.
If you're a beginner in RC modeling then allow a weekend to get the project
completed and have your SR.N5 hovering. Remember you can always email firstname.lastname@example.org

This SR.N5 RC
Hovercraft offers true scale performance. It features high
efficiency twin motors for optimum lift and thrust. The design has
benefited from the Hovercraftmodels.com attention to detail in

model is all molded in Lexan™ and ABS to make a robust and
durable body. The
SR.N5 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. Full
are in the manual, the kit
supports both configurations.
Equipment and Speed Controller Choices:
The speed controller(s), radio, batteries, and servo are not
included in the SR.N5 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 SR.N5 as well. You could also use an existing 2 channel radio
setup and speed controller if you have them.
