Hello Hovercraft Constructor:You have selected a project which will change your life. Building the DiscoverHover One presents opportunities to experience many new ideas and to learn or perfect new skills.Bob Windt originally designed this machine as an entry level project for students and enthusiastswho belonged to the Hoverclub of America, Inc. After watching how practical and well receivedthis project was, the World Hovecraft Organisation decided to improve the drawings, addteacher training ideas, and make plans available to students and clubs without charge.The original plans consisted of two blue prints, which lacked much detail, so a project wasundertaken to convert the drawings into Auto Cad files and to bring them into line with professional drawing practices. Initially, Tim Envall in Australia and students from Indiana StateUniversity in the USA began this work. Rob Wilson, Neoteric Hovercraft's Technical Director who resides in Australia, has finally reworked all of the drawings and made corrections wherenecessary.Because the future of world DiscoverHover competitions means craft could need to be shippedall over the world, the machine was redesigned to be knocked-down, making it more stackable sothat machines can nest together and shipping volume can be minimized. This is also anadvantage when putting the Hovercraft inside a small cargo or passenger van, or a pick-up truck.The concept added more complication to the construction. Now the cockpit, the hull or base, thethrust duct, and the engine module are separable.Please inform us if you uncover any drawing errors or have suggestions for improvements, andwe will promptly revise the drawings and notes as well as list the changes on the DiscoverHover forum. Please note that drawing numbers have interuptions and do not be alarmed when certainnumbers are missing. For example there are no drawings 71,72,73,74, and 75. This is notimportant. Numbers identify parts for which a drawing is unnecessary. Also, the order of thenumbers has no significance, and the product code is for use by the World HovercraftOrganization.The original construction notes have been released along with the drawings. They have hadlimited editing so take care when using this information. Double check before cutting materials.Inform us of any errors that you discover.Please document your project, send DiscoverHover your digital photographs, comments and any press articles so everyone can share with you in the world of DiscoverHover and learn heapsabout science at the same time.Good luck with your undertaking and have fun.Chris FitzgeraldChairmanWorld Hovercraft Organization/DiscoverHover
