Project: homebuilt hovercraft
See how new materials and techniques, as well as quiet and efficient engines are used in the construction of homebuilt hovercraft. We're working to make hovercraft easier, safer, and more fun for builders of all experience levels. We have a hovercraft on display, as well as a retired engine that's been cut away and turned into an interactive model.

Bio: Lone Star Hovercraft was founded in 2011 with the purpose of bringing recent advances in tools and technology to homebuilders. From user-friendly composites to CNC routing, we're interested in making hovercraft accessible to makers everywhere.
