My name is Carl Bellmann Jr. and I'm from the USA, Edgerton Ohio. Well I have thank Jean-Louis for sharing the knowledge and insite with us and the world. To me the lifter projects are very exciting with prospects possibly beyond imagine. I first built the basic lifter then other variations of my own design that didn't work so good.
Towards controlled flight was my next goal, and it was achieved 5-14- 02 with what I call the Y-liter, because that's what it looks like. The first part of it's design was to have three wings with the alum. foil separated between each one.The emitter wire remains at full power while varying the ground to each wing, which is really three wings, it first was only two with the emitter centered above. It didn't lift itself so I added the third centered wing and it lifted and controlled very well. I am now building a balance beam to optimize a wing design. Then to make a lifter that will lift it's own power supply. Russell's 2 meter BeamShip shows me, that it can be done.
Weight : 8 grams
Each wing 190mm long
16mm spacing between wings
power aprox. 30 kv (old 19inch magnavox color tv)
The height of the flight is only about a foot because I had it
restrained with the ground wires.That would be the safe limit
until I build a better control as I let it go
higher once and it about hit me(didn't get that on video). It can't be seen in the video but the positive lead is supported by my cherry picker hook and has about three spirals in it down too the top of the lifter. In the one clip you can see my hand holding the plastic tube with ground wire attached to a brass cabinet knob. The ground wires from the lifter are connected to three brass eyes screwed to the inside pcv fitting oriented to my Y-lifter.
