Human Powered Hovercraft :: Steam Boat Willy 
  

 

Part 1: One of the first hovers with the new Finger extensions to the Skirt. Good to see daylight right through underneath. But note sideways tip, and you had to pedal quite hard. Later adjustments alleviated these effects.

Part 2: The team are pleased that the new Fingers work. But puzzled why the craft tips sideways.

Part 3: Chris suggests to Simon that he balances it like riding a bike. Is it any better ? Watch the movie, what do you think? Later, we modified the internal vents. This improved stability and made the craft ride more level.
