Griffon 2000TD Patrol Hovercraft

1000 Followers Special


[Light-weight hovercraft used for military and rescue organisations]


Promised challenge entry, I hope patrol/counter-insurgency role qualifies 

Controls:
VTOP UP - Forward
VTOL DOWN - Reverse (no steering)
YAW - Steering
ROLL / PITCH - Turret Rotation
7 - Warning Beacon ON
8 - Lights ON/OFF


Features:

  • If wheels scratching noise annoys you, avoid tarmac
  • A lot of fun for just 364 parts
  • Tundra camouflage theme
  • Simple, but innovative cushion mechanics and hovercraft maneuverability
  • No steering in reverse (Sorry, but that's realistic)
  • 12.7 machine gun UPGRADE (instead of stock 7.62)
  • Bad climber. Can attach high beach edges and kerbs, still cannot climb big slopes (also realistic). Still, great off-road handling
  • Max speed of 50 mph (extra 10 mph for fun)


Concept inspired by Leeohopard tracks (Anti-Air Challenge Winner vehicle)

    @BogdanX that makes sense.
    But what if we in include both methods because i do like how the air cushion moves and with other method simulated hovering over water with the rotator could be pretty interesting to see that in a build.
    But that's probably test for another time..

    @BogdanX Yeah I tried this method very unreliable

    @BogdanX What about a helicopter rotor with high ground effect ?
    ED suggest me this when I was trying to make one.

    @BogdanX Well, its very polish and fun as always with your stuff. I didn't any found flaw. Ngl its with ED's hovercraft the "real" first one. I was also wondering if you used any engine for vertical trust to simulate the cushion of air or only the wheel ?
