For years, the hovercraft industry has been without a good, affordable way to communicate while hovering. The only real option has been the Peltor Powercom series. But, not only is the high price ($400-$600 per person, depending on model) hard to accept, the performance simply does not justify the cost. Speech is often garbled and hard to understand, and the range is very short (about 1/2 mile).

Slipstream has been working hard to solve that problem and the solution is here. The Slipstream HoverCom is an affordable piece of communications gear at roughly half the price of a Peltor set. It features a 26dB rated cup for hearing protection, a noise canceling microphone, 2-4x the range of a Peltor (1-2 miles), and clear, easy to understand sound. Best of all, they're lightweight and comfortable enough to wear all day, plus fully adjustable to fit any size head.

The push to talk button is easy to reach on the side of the headset. There is also a 1/8" stereo plug on the bottom of the headset. This allows you to connect external audio, such as as music player so that you can listen to music and talk to others while you fly.

This kit includes two headsets, two radios with double charging station, and two coil cords.

Headset Features:
  • Lightweight and comfortable for extended wear
    20% lighter than a Peltor Powercom Plus
  • Noise canceling microphone with included cloth wind cover
    Provides clear, easy to understand sound when properly positioned
  • 26dB noise reduction rating and clear audio speakers
    Significantly reduces background noise and keeps audio clear
  • High quality flexible hybrid boom
    Adjusts in and out and up and down on rigid boom while the end flexes for exact positioning
  • Connects to FRS/GMRS radio that uses same frequency as Peltor headsets and most handheld radios
    This means it's compatible with what's already out there
  • 1/8" (3.5mm) stereo auxiliary input for listening to music or other devices
    Optional coiled extension cable available
Radio Features:
  • GMRS radio (shares frequencies with FRS)
    Shares frequencies with FRS
  • Up to 36 mile range
    Expect 1-2 miles with hovercraft use (most only get about 1/2 mile of effective range)
