New from Ikarus:

This is the world première of a spectacular RC vehicle.

Right away Ikarus is presenting two new Race-Hovercrafts. Finally, with the “Craftair” and “Dragstair” modelers have the opportunity to own a pure-breed remote controlled Race-Hovercraft. They are being offered as “Ready to Run” versions or as kits.

This spectacular RC vehicle was especially designed for RACING. The durable Acropor body can take even violent collisions. The Race-Hovercraft can be operated on asphalt, water, ice, Tartan-surfaced sports fields, concrete surfaces, carpets and in gymnasiums. With optional tuning motors top speeds of up to 50 km/h (30 mph) can be achieved.

Dragstair Features:

  • Skirt quick-change system
  • Impeller type Power Duct allows dragster-like acceleration
  • Conversion for separate hover/pusher control possible (transmitter already equipped)
  • Super-Drift-Twin-Airfoil-Control-System for optimum straight run and extreme power drifts
  • Dual-Power-System: separated hover-pusher drive with two power motors
  • 3-channel transmitter, Formula1 ready
  • Integrated brake pad for immediate full stop on every surface
  • All-Terrain-Racing-Skirt made of real hovercraft skirt fabric
  • Crash proof and unsinkable Acropor body
  • Wind tunnel improved Aero-Race body
  • Water protected air exhaust system
  • Dirt-Protection-Micronet-System
  • Splash water protected R/C compartment

Technical Specifications:

Length: 450 mm (17.7 in)
Width: 250 mm (10 in)
Height: 215 mm (8.5 in)
Duct: 130 mm (5.1 in)
Weight ready to run: approx. 495 g (1 lbs, 1.5 oz)
Battery: 7.4 V Li-Po

The new Ikarus Race-Hovercraft Craftair is a Pro-Kit. It consists of an upper and a lower shell, which permit a quick skirt change. The pilot decides on the motors used for the Craftair. The model is controlled by two motors (not included in the kit). The front motor is the hover motor, responsible for creating the air cushion, with the rear motor generating the forward motion.
Everyone can decide on their own how to configure the model.

  • Skirt quick-change system
  • Impeller type Power Duct allows dragster-like acceleration
  • Parallel or separate control of hover/pusher control possible

  • All-Terrain-Racing-Skirt made of real hovercraft skirt fabric
