Micro drift hovercrafts are tipped to be ‘the next big thing’ in the hobby community. So enthusiastic are the followers of this hobby that the first-ever micro drift hovercraft championship has been announced. It will take place at the UK Drone & Technology show in December (and with a £500 cash prize!!!!). So now is your chance to dust off your old, broken tiny whoop that is probably still laying around because like most hobbyists do, we never throw anything away! But you’d certainly be glad that you held onto it now that you know of this new emerging trend that is likely to stick around for some time.
HobbyKing is pleased to announce the new Micro Drone Hovercraft Kit. These nifty, little conversion kits work with your whoop electronics to transform it into a fully functional, super-fast hovercraft that works on almost any surface.
Although I’ve seen these whoop hovercrafts constructed out of everything from sponges to polystyrene takeaway containers. The team at HobbyKing have created an inexpensive laser cut, foam kit for you all to enjoy and it is available to buy now (Click here).
We, at the HobbyKing office, have had an absolute blast testing these things out (and of course indulging in some healthy competition) as you can see from the video below.
What are your thoughts on this trend? Do you see it lasting? How are you going to customize your whoop hovercraft? Tell us in the comment section below.
