Gimbal Fans are powerful fans mounted in circular ducts. When installed into the chassis of an Aeromobile Hovercraft, a Gimbal Fan can move freely with two degrees of freedom to tilt fore, aft and laterally. When in the vertical position, 100% of the fan discharge air goes to lift. But when the Gimbal Fan is tilted, up to two thirds of the column of air (or slipstream) is available to produce thrust in any direction. The remaining one third of the air column produced by the Gimbal Fan is always directed downward to maintain lift.

The control forces produced by tilting the Gimbal Fans in any direction are of exactly the same order of magnitude as the propulsion forces. Those forces can be directed in any of the 360 degrees azimuth instantly, and can be canceled instantly or reversed. The energy available for propulsion, steering and braking is three times that required for lift. The usable and propulsive control force in Gimbal Fans is a function of the total installed power. If high, gusty, gale-force winds are what the hovercraft has to deal with, more powerful Gimbal Fans or additional Gimbal Fans can be installed. Since each Gimbal Fan has its own power and control mechanism, modularized power can be added to any air cushion vehicle, as needed.

A minimum of two Gimbal Fans is needed per amphibian air cushion vehicle (Gimbal Fan Amphibious Hovercrafts), one on the bow and one on the stern. This allows the craft to hold its own in the face of gusts, grades, and currents without experiencing weather cocking tendencies. A twin Gimbal Fan hovercraft can be steered with precision, overcoming winds, graded terrain, obstacles and rushing currents of water. It can pivot in place, can go in reverse and is capable of high speed breaking. Gimbal Fan hovercrafts can be controlled under all conditions.

Gimbal Fans are also the power source for Dr. Bertelsen's Aeromobile - Aeroduct System.

On Monday I'll instruct my attorney to begin suing Aeromobile for their blatant, unauthorized misuse of my copyrighted.©, trademarked™ screenname, and for not sending me the two dozen boxes of Cuban.® cigars they promised.

I had a different theory.

I thought, that he was such a hot pilot and so quick with the sticks, he needed fans to prevent gimbal over-heating.
