The earth at [approximately] 8,000 miles diameter rotating once in 24 hours is relatively equal to a 45-foot craft rotating at 580 rpm, and 580 rpm would calculate to be the approximate rotational speed of an automobile tire on a car moving at about 25-30 mph.
So that is the earth, say, is [approximately] 8,000 miles in diameter, we know its fixed rotation is 1 in 24 [blurred text, possible additional digit]. If we were 1 mile in diameter its rotation would be 8000 in 24 [blurred text, possible additional digit]. And by the same system, our 45-foot craft has a rotation of 580 rpm and when it reaches this rotation it is totally independent of its inertial attractive mass, in an electromagnetic field.
Ralph Ring describes Otis Carr thus: "He was an unquestioned genius. Tesla had recognized his quality immediately and had taught him everything he knew. He was inspired, and – like Tesla – seemed to know exactly what to do to get something to work. He was a private man and was also very metaphysical in his thinking. I think the fact that he was not formally trained in physics helped him. He was not constrained by any preconceived ideas.

The earth rotates at over 1,041 mph at the equator, so there is that momentum, but the earth’s orbital speed and path around the sun means that the earth’s more general path is in the direction of its orbit. As the earth’s rotating surface would appear to a distant observer to be moving backwards from its direction of orbital motion over a period of a day, it is always moving toward its orbital path because its orbital speed (over 66,600 mph) is greater than its rotational speed.
