In summary, the conversation is about building a hover craft and the person is seeking advice on what to use to hover the craft, how to accelerate it, and how to support themselves while hovering. They have already figured out most of the physics behind the hover craft, but are struggling with these three aspects. Suggestions include using a fan and skirt for hovering, a fan for acceleration and thrust vectoring, and a seat for support. The materials and calculations needed for the hover craft are also discussed.

hi! can someone send me some detailed information(some 20-30 pages) about thrust vectoring. iam student in aeronautical engg. i need it for my seminar purpose.
my mail id is: [deleted]
No. That's not how we do things here.

<h2>1. What is a hovercraft and how does it work?</h2><p>A hovercraft is a vehicle that is supported by a cushion of air, allowing it to travel over land, water, and other surfaces. It works by using a fan to create a high-pressure area of air underneath the craft, which lifts it off the ground.
