  1. There are some minor mistakes in the video.
    The potential difference between the two electrodes (wire and wing) is 40kV, since the wire is charged to +20kV and the wing to -20kV.
    The voltage type is also DC and not AC.

    The DC voltage of the battery is converted to AC by a H-bridge circuit. This AC is transformed to a higher voltage level and finally converted to a high voltage DC by the Cockroft-Walton generator.

  2. IF YOU LOOK AT DAVINCIS ANEMOMETER… you'll see that same torpedo or arrow looking thing here in the body of the craft…all you have to do now is make the head of that craft ionic…without the wings and that's it….heck tall can even make flying broomsticks with this and play quidditch….dont let your own genius minds and creativity be confined by the designs you see other people create…go make some shit and have fun…and let's play quidditch

  3. If you towed a ion drive powered plane into the thin upper atmosphere it would have a better chance to sustain it's speed. I have been trying to design a hybrid electric lightweight orbital spaceplane but getting the electrical energy is tricky. Even if it can get into orbit by skimming off the upper atmosphere reentry into the atmosphere would be tricky with such a big wing.

  4. I love the Wright brother's analogy with this latest tech. Yes isn't a big leap over other ion drives but still in it's infancy. The future looks bright!

  5. @5:30 why not only apply the conductive anode to the upper side of the airfoil? If you are going to use an airfoil why not take advantage of this by attracting the air flow to the upper side to create more lift/flow over the top? Make the top of the wing the anode and put an emitter wire out in front of the leading edge?

  6. It's not the first of it's kind many backyard inventers have built variations of this craft and Scientist were using this as far back as the early 1900's. GET YOUR FACTS RIGHT.

  7. Ionocrafts have been around since the 50's…
    1. It does'nt work in space (as there's no air to ionize)
    2. It produces large amounts of ozone and NOx gasses which are very toxic.
    3. It's like a flying taser, multiplied by a hundred 🙂 If this aircraft accidentally flies into a person, that person will likely be electrocuted to death with more than 30.000 volts.
    So, I don't think it will ever be useful. Conventional electric motors are safer, cleaner and less dangerous, and far more efficient…

  8. Your video is misleading, because space ion propulsion systems have literally nothing in common with the simple minimalistic devices that create ionic wind. Those have been known for decades, and there are hundreds of videos on youtube with those flying ionic wind setups, the only difference is that they were all using a wired power supply, while this one uses an on-board battery, which was only possible because of recent advancements in Li-Ion battery technology. MIT made literally nothing important here.

  9. One more key concept about low-force thrust: not the same as low power. 0.09 N at 1 m/s is only 0.09 Nm = 0.09 W. But at 1000 m/s it’s 90W etc etc. That said, at some high enough speed, that 0.09N would begin to decrease. Power output won’t scale forever.

  10. You can carry out the experiments below even in your garage or on your kitchentable!

    THE CONSTRUCTOR THEORY results in AN EXPERIMENTALLY PROVED SEVERE violation of the law of conservation of linear momentum, which is described in the link below:

    Let us popularize the link above as much as possible!

    Let us push forward together the technology progress!

  11. I can do over 400,000 lbs of force with no moving parts. AC current. It's so simple and only 9 parts. It's done with feedback. 20kv is peanuts when this can do a trillion. What your describing is obsolete and not enough power and no gravity in the ship. This will give gravity and supply endless water… and the ship uses thought because it receives and transmits those waves. I already did all the engineering in 3d. This ship will go anywhere and require no fuel at all and cost nothing to run. I did all the work for free.. and it's free just ask for it. No battery.. no fuel… no coil.. no magnet.. all done with sound and feedback… incredibly simple.

  12. Chances are that the almost credible reported UFO’s seen zipping around and changing direction at a phenomenal rate use a propulsion system similar to this. Hence no visible moving parts. Any alien species will today be where we will be in a few decades or centuries.

  13. Nuclear propulsion using nuclear explosions does not deliver mass to accelerate but nuclear or cold fusion energy usable fot endless drive not loosing any mass simply accelerating mass like Hg in ring then shoot into attached tubes filled with water for linear slow down driving into direction shoot Hg back in cycle into ring accelerator with counter rotator usable also for Hg punsh fusion in H2O and for Hg-197 epsilon decay gold.

  14. Could you make an ion generator in space to power the ship? I mean if you can spin a generator with 4 ion propulsion jets like a windmill or something? Idk.

  15. Nuclear propulsion using nuclear explosions does not deliver mass to accelerate but nuclear or cold fusion energy usable fot endless drive not loosing any mass simply accelerating mass like Hg in ring then shoot into attached tubes filled with water for linear slow down driving into direction shoot Hg back in cycle into ring accelerator with counter rotator usable also for Hg punsh fusion in H2O and for Hg-197 epsilon decay gold.

  16. space is filled with calcium ion. light photon would jump (hiking on ion) calcium particles /ion? jumping from one calcium ion to another at its own speed frog jumping from one lily pad tp the next). Just a crazy idea taken from some material read (:
