Slipstream was inspired by the success of hovercraft design. However, it was found that the use of 4 fans were too energy consuming and inefficient. Due to the weaker thrust power, the watercraft is shaped like an arrowhead for smooth movement. Similar to a hovercraft, the forward, backward and rotational movements are provided by 2 individually-controlled fan thrusters which allows for two-directional turning through remote control. This allows Slipstream to move in more than 8 different directions, which is impossible for other rotor-based watercraft! Due to the heavy fan thrusters, a recycled high-density swimming foam board is being used as a base to provide buoyancy. An acrylic shell is then formed and installed to ensure that the electronic parts are isolated from water.
