    Does anybody know how to make a JetPack or Hovercraft under $100? My son wants to make one for his science project. I have searched the Internet and come up with two good candidates. Also, if you know of any good and simple books on the subject, give me a holler. Last, if you ever saw one perform in real life, will you please share that experience with the hub community?

    Stay tuned. I will keep you all posted when we actually begin building one. It's sound fun and exciting to me although I have never built anything like or similar to that before. Keep your fingers crossed. Stay tuned.

    Hi hubby7,

    I found some info how to make a homemade Hovercraft, … raft-12347

    I know it's a late response.
    Good luck on your project.

    My nephew wanted to make one a couple of years ago,but lost interest.
    Now i'm teaching him the basics to fix his own car before he gets
    his license.

    I never knew all the lingo until someone sent me this link;
