This aquatic beast gets off the wet stuff with help from it’s turbocharged, 130hp engine, 60″ wood/carbon composite thrust propeller, fibreglass hull and 1,100rpm lift fan which inflates its durable vinyl-coated nylon skirt for hovering above the ground.
Operating in fresh- or saltwater and up to 30% inclines over sand, mud, grass, swamp, desert, ice, and snow, its wings and horizontal elevator enable pilots to simply hop over water- or land-based obstacles up to 20′-high.
A joystick controls three vertical rudders and the elevator, a twist friction-lock throttle controls forward speed, and a variable drive system controls the lift fan for hovering. Braking is provided by lowering the lift fan’s rpms; comes to rest on Kevlar composite landing skids.
Its low centre of gravity and composite fibreglass/PVC hull enable it to operate in winds up to 25 mph and waves up to 6′ when in flight. Two nine-gallon fuel tanks provide a 160-mile range. Supports pilot/passenger payloads up to 600 lbs. for flight.
And you can have all of this for just short of $200,000
