Burden Brothers Hovercraft
Gettin' High by Flying Low!
Welcome to the home of the Burden Brothers Hovercraft.
The Burden Brothers Hovercraft is a single engine personal hovercraft
that was built in approximately 2 weeks. The construction time was rushed
in order to have it ready for the Stubbs BBQ show on May 10th of 2002.
It is based on the 10F design from Universal Hovercraft and it can
travel over any relatively flat surface. It has a top speed of about
25 MPH and does not have any brakes.
The hovercraft was built to help promote the Burden Brothers. The idea
came from seeing the Burden Brothers race car that was present during
SXSW (South by Southwest) 2002. The car was all black with the large
BB logo on the front. You can see a picture of it here.
We figured we could build a hovercraft to match the race car. The band
was approached and they thought it was a good idea and even provided
the flame logo seen above.
You can hear more about the hovercraft on the Burden Brothers RYFLAMF DVD extras.
