Here's an interesting design you may want to try for your MOCs to show their hovering capability.
This glider balances on a wedge (you'll understand it better by opening the page) and can be carried on the tip of a finger.
The trick is all in bringing the MOC's center of gravity some distance UNDER the main hull. The lower the center of gravity, the more stable it will be.
It's not really as hard as it looks.
What you want to do is to buld your ship Y-shaped, and angle down the wings until it balances. Then you take it from there. Sometimes it may take several rebuilds, but it's worth the effort. Permalink
