We're back racing in two weeks.

Well, its that time of the year again!

Our new Cobra Formula 2 Hovercraft is pretty much ready, so we're off racing at Towcester Race Course, Northampton, in two weeks time. This time, we've dropped the stupidly-powerful-but-bloody-heavy GSXR600 engine in favour of a 440cc Snowmobile Engine from a 2007 Lynx MXZ Z440. Roughly 100bhp but 32kgs... should be quick but it'll take a lot of sorting out and setting up. 

We'll also have the new Coastal-Pro there, so if you'd like tocome along and see it, you'll be very welcome.

Just to whet your appetite, here's a taster - our Cobra F2 racing from Prudhomat, France in 2013.

How to remove the governor from a Briggs & Stratton engine for hovercraft use.

The Briggs & Stratton 35bhp motor is a superb Japanese built engine used for many applications that B&S never even thought of! Here at Flying Fish Hovercraft, we've installed many hundreds into small hovercraft and are the UK's largest buyer of these handy little power units. They've also proven themselves in Ultralight aircraft and US Swamp Boats/Mud Buddies. This video shows you the first job you'll need to do to for any dynamic application (ie not a conveyor belt or stump cutter!)

This is your first job when preparing one of these engines, strip out the engine speed controller/governor.

NOTE : If you're going on to install it using a standard Flying Fish engine frame, there is extra machining required before reassembly!
