But there is something *necessary* about what he's doing.
He is testing 'crank' ideas instead of dismissing them out of hand.
In the case of the lifter it's a reinvention of the ionocraft. However,
given that work on that is getting on for 50 yrs old it may be that
technology has moved to the point where it may be a viable concept for
Care to 'prove' that a lifter/ionocraft can never carry its own PSU?
Or do you think (as I do) that its something so complex that only experiment
will provide a definitive answer?
If Naudin et al manage to get a lifter to carry its own PSU they will have e
rned themselves a small footnote in the history of aviation even it it does
not turn out to have practical applications.
