Taurean welcome to the forum!

You would need to use brushed DC motors like this:

http://robokits.co.in/shop/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=2&products_id=208

Since you stay in Chennai. Check out this site. Maybe you can be the official supplier for all of us on the forum!

http://www.jp-igarashi.com/english/network/india.html

They have an amazing range of top class motors.

All the best!

Brushless motors are more efficient but need a steady flow of air over them to keep them cool. That is why they are ideally suited for aeromodels. Brushed motors are preferable for land and water crafts as they run cooler without a heavy airflow.

Thank you VC sir.
Hey Taurean ,you can build a hovercraft with a much lower budget if you use only brushed motors along with brushed esc's.Even if you use brushless setup,the cost of building will go to around 3k,excluding the radio.
