That looks like it will end in tears one of two ways. You master handling the craft with TWO fans, and your wife will kick you out and you end up in tears on the street.

You don't master the handling of a hovercraft with two fans and screen, inferring it is excessively powered and v fast, and you are in tears after you crash..... be fun trying.
