Tinkerer Builds A Real Life Jet-Propelled Hovercraft From the Video Game Halo

It was built using a lawnmower engine.

Who has not watched a video game and wished they could ride the vehicles featured for real? Now, YouTuber Built IRL has engineered a Ghost vehicle from the Halo series.

The purple hovering vehicle is surprisingly very well -constructed perfectly mimicking the video game version. How did he build it?

He took an engine from a lawnmower and two small jet engines for thrust. Unfortunately, he didn't have an anti-gravity drive which resulted in the Ghost sounding like a lawnmower.

Another issue with the Ghost is that the jet engines go through fuel very quickly and are too hot to stand behind. To deal with this issue the YouTuber turned them to the other side. This ended up helping with navigation and turns.

He also had to remove a kill switch that kept activating by itself. Needless to say, this was not an easy project to complete.

What other innovative engineering did the YouTuber conceive of? How did he make the sleek purple exterior of the vehicle? How long can the vehicle function before the jet engines run out of fuel? Where did he test it out? The video answers all these questions and brings you footage of the Ghost in action.
