Obviously this "quadcopter" is a demonstration device, showing how moving magnets over a conducting surface can generate levitation. It has not been optimized to minimize losses or be an efficient mode of transport. I still think it's pretty cool. I'm used to seeing light things levitated by induced currents but not a 100+ lb machine.

FANTASTIC video Derek. I'll teeet it in a second. It make me realize that wouldn't there be a type of magnetic terminal velocity for hypoerloop because of Lenz's law?

+Sayon Palit It wouldnt. The reasons for 'rods from god' weapons never being built or used is because of the cost of putting super heavy objects (like tungsten rods) in orbit would be prohibitively high. The speed is determined by gravity and orbit height. There is no terminal velocity related at all.

Trains only work over a weird construction made up of rebar and iron and crap, that has to be held down with ties and can still only go in one direction. This arguably works in *more* scenarios.

Okay so we cover the planet in copper so these devices can go everywhere a gas machine can go. Yeah, that's not a lot of copper. And the copper gets hot. So a highway of copper that gets hot as these machines go over. Uh, does the term, "man made global warming" ring a bell?

That's because is not about the spin to fly, it's about the using the magnetic fields to levitate.

try using stacked plates with sectioned geometric paterns between each plate with each section wired outside the plates section into one -E terminal battery the plates will create A repulsive field on the opposites side of the - E plates and are mainly used in static photon deflection system. the copper scrolls are the first demo stack of a working photon star ship shield

why would this be a "quad copter" if in no way its getting lift from a pressure difference in air? this is just so dumb.... with the magnets spinning its just producing induction and is no way a helicopter you just needed a catch phrase people could understand like "quad copter"

Hyperloop: Someone maybe can tell me how they will maintain a near vacuum in a tube stretching across a continent? What sort of material would be used for the tube? Concorde was 202 feet (66m) long whilst on the runway but at altitude and flying at mach 2 it stretched by two or three inches (50-75mm) and this had to be allowed for in the fuselage to keep the stressed skin pressurised. This was difficult in a 66 metre tube - How about a 600km tube? With a much greater differential pressure. Sounds like a truly dumb idea to me. I am in South London and laying beneath me are the ghostly remains of the Atmospheric Railway - an attempt to build a hyperloop by the Victorians. The low pressure was kept by leather seals which hugged the carriages. They were eaten by rats. The steam engines couldn't supply the power to move enough air and the whole thing was closed fairly soon after opening.

Captain Greenhat

That's hardly a quad copter and for magnetic levitation that was stupid loud. Why have it be so heavy? I can maybe see use on a factory floor but the device weight and em current produced heat.
Captain Greenhat
Captain Greenhat 16 дней назад
+0ooTheMAXXoo0 right and thus completely unnecessary. What I'm saying is why build the thing. There are no practical uses due to the drawbacks such as weight, heat, energy usage, sound, and specific surfaces needed to it to work. Also, it's a bug stretch to call it a quad copter. More like a magnetic hovercraft than anything. In fact it shares many similarities but with extra drawbacks a hovercraft doesn't have.
0ooTheMAXXoo0 16 дней назад
Permanent magnets weigh quite a bit and so do electric motors to spin those magnets.

Can someone answer this please? Is the Magnetic field induced by the opposing magnet as an attraction force but then lags as the rotation of magnets becomes faster thus making it repulsive to the magnet it has lagged to? Or is the Magnetic field induced by the opposing magnet simply as a repulsive force? I've found conflicting explanations online.....................................

Instead of physically rotating a bunch of magnets, couldn't they just use an array of coils energized in sequence to produce the same fields? (Think along the lines of induction motors.) A couple sets of transistors in parallel (to handle the current) to switch each coil, and then you have something solid-state with no moving parts. Now just make that copper plate into an inverted V shape, and bank each pair of magnets and it should self-center to make a working track of inverted-V sections. Still this system isn't that efficient if anything has to hover in place without moving, too much of that energy is wasted as heat from the resistance of the eddy current.
Michael 26 дней назад
great stuff. loving the magnets, always been a fan experimental magnetic lev. do we as humans have any theories on doing this without the use of copper (as in the rail) and without so much electric power to power up these motors. i understand the motors are pretty thirsty motors due the the magnetic resistance. and due to the weight the machine can carry, isnt this a prime candidate for the hydrogen fueled engine to produce the electricity required for lift and motion? it would not surprise me if the hydrogen hybrid engine is most suited for this application. same weight as batteries that would be needed for a few hours of power, but with no refilling or charging. and being friction-less (almost), the weight issue is then not a big issue such as friction transport (ie the wheel) ...its a no brainer and a win win.

Indeed: this effect was pointed out by Maxwell in the middle of the nineteenth century, and he provided one of the most beautiful 'thought experiments' - ever - in order to explain it. Why are these people getting so excited about Victorian ideas? They must be electrical engineers (always the most intellectually challenged of engineers).

Whats with the click bait title. It made it sound like this was some quad copter that they some how figured out how to get fly using just electromagnetism (which ya, i thought was odd such a video would exist, since pretty sure that doesnt work, despite all the people who used to think UFOs some how operated using the earths magnetic field). This video has nothing to do with quadcopters or flying machines of any time.

It should be developed to make levitating cargo, freight & passenger barges, ships & planes. Gyro power could also be more developed to provide thrust & propulsion along with non liquid fuel energy source engines. There is a very large market for them now as planes, trains & trucks can not keep up with current demands of freight shipments & more people would travel much more if they could. As the current level of productions are not anywhere near where they are needed to be, should be or could be worldwide!!! As this now needed development is the catalyst that has the ability to greatly multiply world trade & productions, and greatly improve travel times & shipping to lower than 1/2 to 1/3rd of current levels.
