What "real" flying saucers ? where can i buy or see a real flying saucer?
The BB effect certainly very interesting has a lousy weigth to thrust ratio, currently lifting structures measured in grams rather than tons. It is
connected through a wire to an external accu on the ground that would be much to heavy to place an the frame itselve. Can't imagine flying saucers
departing from area 51 with a long extension cord....
Also most of its thrust is derived from ionic wind wich doesn't work in the vacume of space and only works in the lowest part of the atmosphere.
Well, maybe if they can manage to build the airframe and the electrostats from carbon nanotubes/fibre and use roomtemperature superconducting magnets
to store a bunch of electricity in a small space, you might get the favourable lift to weight ratio for real world applications....
