Renegade Features & Options

Listed below is all of the available features for the Renegade Hovercraft. Our IQ and IQC Models come equipt with most of these features. See our comparison chart listed below for full details on included options for each hovercraft.

Features

Proprietary Drive System

RearDrive™ system

Renegade uses our proprietary RearDrive™ fan system to radically improve airflow to the fan while increasing efficiency. Achieving smooth airflow leading into the fan is critical in reducing fan noise. Renegade has the smoothest inlet airflow of any in its class. Notice how the smooth inlet conditions in front of the fan resemble that of a commercial jet engine.

Simple Controls

Throttle trigger & cable

The trigger throttle is fitted with a easy to operate friction locking system to allow the throttle to be locked into position.

Reliable

Kohler engine

750cc, fuel injected, 26 horsepower Kohler engine. One year factory warranty.

Quiet

AeroDrive™ system

AeroDrive™ uses RearDrive a 7-blade fan, fan cone, tail cone and flow straighteners to provide quiet and efficient power to the integrated propulsion system. Clean airflow into the fan and straight airflow out of the fan keep the Renegade quiet.

Airflow

Flow straighteners

Five air flow straighteners are located behind the fan increasing performance and greatly reducing noise. Flow straighteners take the swirl out of the air caused by the fan. This results is 15% greater efficiency.

Storage

Seat storage compartment

Under seat storage compartment. This part comes standard in all Renegade hovercraft and is made of lightweight made of GRP.

Efficient

Air deflectors

Air deflectors are used to change the direction of lift air inside the hull. These deflectors are located on the inside of the stern hull section on the left and right side. Air deflectors add efficiency to the lift system.

Lightweight Materials

EZ Load Trailer

Our rapid deployment trailer is extremely compact and lightweight for use with any car. The Renegade can be offloaded in less than a minute on land or water. Trailer is complete and ready to roll. We also offer this trailer in kit form to allow a lower price point as well as easier shipping configuration.

INCLUDED

Operator training

Training is included with all turnkey Renegade purchases at our facuility here in Rockford, IL. On site training is available. Includes Renegade owners & Operators manual.

Innovation

FAD system

The forward air delivery system moves the highest pressure air from the thrust duct to the front of the hovercraft to help maintain level flight. Panels are made from air feed diaphragm fabric with a fail-safe Velcro pleat. Designed for high airflow, lightweight & impact resistance. Completely assembled and ready for installation.

Smooth operation

Forward skirt attach panel

Serves two purposes; it’s the forward inside attachment point for the skirt and the anti-plow system which keeps the Renegade flying smooth.

Technology

Tachometer & Hour meter

Self-powered tachometer and engine hour meter. Installed on the forward dash panel or discretely under the seat. Reads engine rpm when engine is running and displays operating hours when engine is off.

IQ Model Upgrade

Kevlar Hull

Renegade hulls are made of a Kevlar / foam core composite structure. Hulls are individually hand laid to ensure a precision laminate. The laminate schedule includes a foam core laminated in Kevlar on both sides. Laminate thickness is controlled throughout the layup ensuring each finished hull is as light and strong as possible. Hull is cured under extreme vacuum for superior bonding and accuracy. Hulls are then post cured in an oven for 90 minutes to further strengthen the laminate.

IQ Model Upgrade

Instrumentation package

Analog tachometer, hour meter, oil pressure gauges. Back lit for night time operation.
