@Max....a practical and achievable DIY strategy might be to aim between the two.  Use the leaf blower (or two or even 4 of them) and use a controller to control them (and/or control surfaces or vents) such that you can command motion in any direction like the big one, or maybe have an additional leaf blower or a fan for propulsion like a swamp buggy.

Just make sure not to fill it with eels........ :-)

David Patterson, known for his pioneering research that led to RAID, clusters and more, is part of a team at UC Berkeley that recently made its RISC-V processor architecture an open source hardware offering. We talk with Patterson and one of his colleagues behind the effort about the opportunities they see, what new kinds of designs they hope to enable and what it means for today’s commercial processor giants such as Intel, ARM and Imagination Technologies.
