I just picked up a Typhoon T-3, and I'm not impressed.  I've never messed with another Typhoon, so I can't compare, but this thing isn't very fun at all.

It won't move on concrete or carpet, which is what I planned to run it on.  On tile, it goes forward with some effort, but doesn't move backwards at all.  My battery is a fairly new NiMh pack, charged using a smart charger.

My question is, does this thing only run on super smooth surfaces like basketball courts?  Or is there something wrong with it?  If there is something wrong with it, I'm guessing my battery is fading or the main fan motor needs serviced/replaced.

I have one as well. Its slow on carpet, but it moves along. I guess its because i have flat carpet. On bare floors, it moves along nicely. Maybe as fast as a mini tyco. Never tried it on water yet...

Also, i should say, this is my only experiance with these hovercraft.
