Notes from JL Naudin : It seems interesting to notice that, in spite of the windy weather and the light weight of the Lifters, the hovering phase is stable.
LIFTER v3.0 - First LAUNCH TEST ( Nov 1, 2001 )
The nylon wires which secured previously the Lifter to the base have been removed. Now, the Lifter is guided with a 1 meter fiberglass ramp, so as it is able to slide along it by the mean of a small plastic tube ( see the photos below ).
A small rubber ring is placed at the top to avoid that the Lifter escapes.
TESTS RESULTS :
When the HV power is switch on the Lifter v3.0 goes upward quickly ( in spite of some frictions in the sliding tube ). The Lifter v3.0 remains stable at the top of the ramp ( 1 meter above the wooden table... ) so long as the HV Power Supply is switched on.
