We built the worlds first full-size Jet Powered Hovercraft

To help facilitate this conversion, he called Matt from the channel Warped Perception, who does a lot with these small jets. They set about configuring the duct for the main fan so it’s only inflating the hovercraft’s skirt and no longer providing forward thrust. Then they took a bunch of 2x4 lumber and built a swinging mount for the twin jets, then wired up all the control electronics for them.


To power the jet engines, the crew initially used kerosene which is super similar to commercial jet fuel, just less refined. That worked but was expensive, so they switched to diesel because turbines will run on almost anything.

The results are stupidly loud, surprisingly fast, and if Matt from Warped Perception is to be believed, it handles better than a stock Scat hovercraft.
