Hey there everyone!
So i have been encountering so many problems with this helicopter idea, that i have decided to research a new flight option. This one is not so much a "flight" project as a "hover" project.
So first things first I technically have already built a hover board. I used the same principals as today's hover crafts. Or the same idea that is used on an air hockey table. However although cool and cheap (26$) it did not have the power to lift someone larger than 70lbs.

My new plan will cost a lot more, however it should be able to fly or at least hover a foot or so above the ground.
I plan on using EDFs, or electric ducted fans to build it, which have a very high thrust to weight ratio for electric motors.
EDF's look something like this
They are basically small, electric jet engines. and they are very cool.
Thanks for reading!!!
