Right now, you cant build a stable hovercraft with mixed hovers.
Problem 1 altitude;
Each hover thruster has its own altitude, and for some reason that altitude is based on the bottom of the tech, and not the bottom of the hover thruster.
this means that you can't just place hover parts at relative positions on your tech, as the larger hovers move the smaller hovers out of active range.

problem 2: power,
There is no indication of thrust to weight. you can't balance a medium thruster with two or three smaller thrusters.

problem 3 balance:
Even with the gyros, the physical balance your tech of your tech is important we need an indicator of center of balance, which is different than the center of build that the build beam and center of focus gives us. this affects rate of turning,and control at speed. The Physics engine is that sensitive.

Problem 1 is wrong, all hovers work with relative distance to the thruster. You might want to cut that one out and focus on the other two real problems.
