The ARDA Flying wing v1.0
Advanced Reduced Drag Aircraft
By Jean-Louis Naudin
created on April 28, 1999 - JLN Labs - Last update April 28, 1999

Proof of concept : Ion wind effect testing...

The ARDA Flying Wing v1.0 has been enclosed in a big and large plastic bag, so all parasitic ion wind effects are kept inside the bag, by this mean all eventual motion generated by the ion wind is not possible, (see the picture below).

TEST RESULTS : When the High Voltage is applied to the ARDA v1.0, the device moves forward by itself in spite of the air drag increased by the large plastic bag.

This new test confirms again that the ion wind effect is not the cause of the main motion.

The resulting thrust is undeniable (see the video below).
