The purpose of this test is to confirm that the ionic wind emitted by the wire placed above the aluminum plate is not the cause of the main upwards thrust of the Lifter. I have used the same unlinked Lifter previously tested on February 20, 2003. The wire has been completly mecanically unlinked from the main aluminum armature. The thin wire, connected to the HV generator, is handled by myself and the aluminum armature, connected to the ground, is able to go upwards freely like a common Lifter. This aluminum armature is now fully enclosed in a cardboard box ( 5 mm thick ). A rectangular window, cut on one side of the box and covered with a plastic screen, allows to observe the enclosed Lifter.

The aluminum armature of the Lifter, connected to the ground, is free to move upwards inside the box.
The height of the hovering is limited by three thin nylon wires fastened to the base.
The thin copper wire, connected to the (+) of the HV generator is mounted on a balsa wood frame and handled by myself.

The aluminum armature of the Lifter is fully enclosed in a cardboard box, so there is no possible flow of ionic wind
through the cardboard box ( 5 mm thick ) and thus around the shape of the Lifter.

Lifter specifications
  • Aluminum plate : 200 x 20 mm ( 12µm thick)

  • Wire : copper 1/10 mm diameter

  • Working voltage : 25 KV DC


When the wire is approached above the aluminum plate, while the HV generator is switched on, the aluminum armature, fully enclosed in the box, goes upwards quickly towards the wire. There is no ionic wind coming from the wire flowing through the cardboard into the box.

JL Naudin's comments : This test of the Lifter with the wire mechanically unlinked and fully enclosed in a box proves definitely that :

In the previous tests about the evidence of an asymmetric force between armatures, it has been demonstrated that :
