Hand-Held Battery Powered Hovercraft

This set up makes it possible to use heavier, longer lasting batteries with no weight penalty. Without the batteries to weigh it down, everything about the craft's performance improves. Of course, the longer the wire, the greater the electrical resistance, but the loss of power was more than made up for by the lack of a payload in the setup shown above.

The GH-1's performance on water is great without batteries to weigh it down.
