Found this site on lifter technology. Basicly a triangle with balsa wood struts covered in aluminum foil with a wire above the foil. When you add a voltage the construction rises into the air.

Although the voltage requirements are way too steep for large craft I really think they are onto something here for future engineless craft.

Any one ever made one of these and tested it? Here's a couple links.

Lifters Scoll down to where it says lifter project.

we are currently thinking about constructing one of these on ATS' sister site.

the actual link to the thread dealing with this is

Edit: bad link

Looks like the main hurdle talked about in the post is the power supply. The links show some pretty basic and cheap ones including using an old computer monitor as a power supply.

Actually,... please do not use the link as it will cause login problems.

I've seen one of these things working, it's damn cool. Go for it.

with the right equipment etc., these things are neat; the real question, though, is:

do lifters work in a vacuum?

i've seen mixed reports, mostly trending towards no, unfortunately.

this guy has the most detailed site on lifters that i've seen: JN Audin

good luck, but be careful with the high-voltage equipment; it's dangerous stuff if you don't know how to work with it safely.
