if it takes a true hovercraft 120hp to lift one ton....this guy has found a way to lift 15 ton with 1/2 the hp!?!...it's like donzi telling me that vertical exhaust on a 525 is going to result in 200 pounds of downward force.

I would like to see their calculations on the air volume needed from 0-Rest to top speed.

40mph top end?

My buddies 80 mangusta with 3 staterooms and 4 full heads runs over 50 mph
