    what a plumber can do in a shed eh? Considering the amount of time i've spent on this and the fact this is my first EVER attempt at making anything that leaves the ground this is well and truly a job well done, it's easy to overlook the true scale of what takes to make something like this work at all.
    Thanks to Ford for the sponsorship and the Unlearn campaign which has turned my mad idea into a reality and shown that trying new things can lead to amazing results. You can see more unlearning here unlearn.ford.co.uk/

I actually like yours better tho, and it seems more practical then what I was trying to do. Best of luck to you my friend.

      Hi
      🔴 What Is Islam? ⚠️
      🔴 Islam is not just another religion.
      🔵 It is the same message preached by Moses, Jesus and Abraham.
      🔴 Islam literally means ‘submission to God’ and it teaches us to have a direct relationship with God.
      🔵 It reminds us that since God created us, no one should be worshipped except God alone.
      🔴 It also teaches that God is nothing like a human being or like anything that we can imagine.
      🌍 The concept of God is summarized in the Quran as:
      📖 { “Say, He is God, the One. God, the Absolute. He does not give birth, nor was He born, and there is nothing like Him.”} (Quran 112:1-4)[4] 📚
      🔴 Becoming a Muslim is not turning your back to Jesus.
      🔵 Rather it’s going back to the original teachings of Jesus and obeying him.

    Now you need to put some simple LIDAR sensors on it and control the throttle electronically so that it will maintain a stable altitude and stabilize the attitude if it pitches one way too much. You should be able to do this with off-the-shelf drone parts. Also, you might want to add skids on the front to prevent a prop strike. All in all, a great proof of concept.

    I know this is an older project, wondering if you have had any ideas and plan to revisit it again in the future? I was wondering if you were to add a quad drone mounted to a vertical pole in the center, could you use off the shelf drone controls to make it auto stabilize. The drone would be like a controlling stabile point in space connected by a long lever to keep the bike stabilized. I think there would be a market for something like this that could be remotely piloted to act as a portable all terrain lifting point.

    Add 2 props on either side to make it more stable and more powerful then you should be able to control direction by changing the power to each one and get a small microcontroller to do all the calculations of how balanced and how far off the ground it is so that you can make the controls just forward, left, right, backwards and rotate.

      To be fair , back in the 1980s there were hobby magazines with designs of how to build your own hovercraft with lawn mower engines and lightweight plywood cowling. Moller was also demoing his flying car (noisy loud and tethered)
      Two or three mower engines and you get this albeit nowhere near as a well built or powerful usually.
      Though now with drone stabilization technology used with four blades it should be vastly easier to get a stable controllable ride.

  • Douglas Neufeld

    I have a physics question about this, obviously it doesnt go that far off the ground, but if you had a vehicle similar to this one that could get say a maximum of 1 foot off the ground, if you were driving it along a cliff would you be able to hover over the edge of the cliff and stay at the same elevation thus being many feet off the ground? Would you need a lot of forward velocity or something to maintain your elevation once you went off the cliff or would you be able to slowly float towards the edge? Would it fall quickly down to 1 ft from the bottom of the cliff, or would it slowly glide down? I guess my question can be asked more clearly as this; how much of downward upward lift is gained from the air being pushed down against the ground, also is a significant amount of the lift gained from the air hitting the ground and then bouncing back upwards and pushing the vehicle from beneath, or is it just the presence of the ground for the air to push against that generates the lift regardless of blowback? Obviously many vehicles get so high up you would assume its just the air pressure and resistance of moving the propellers thru the air alone that allows them to stay in the air, or gain more lift once already in the air, and that once over a certain hight the presence of the ground far below the vehicle isnt relevant at all and would no longer be a significant factor in how they generate the force that allows them to hover, like with helicopters I would assume this to be the case, but I suppose I dont actually know, I guess it could be the forward momentum replaces the force from pushing air against the ground. Would a helicopter work in a impossible imaginary space that had air as dense as on the surface of earth, and gravity but no ground. Say you had a floating platform tethered to one location in this hypothetical space and you could launch your helicopter off it, once you left the platform would the helicopter be able to fly like normal or would it fall if you kept it still. What if you had no platform and were just falling infinitely in the seat of your helicopter thru this space, and you turned the helicopter on, would you be able to stop falling or even start rising back up in altitude? What if you couldnt fly forward and the only movement you were allowed was directly up or down movement? Sorry for the long rambling question, just curious how thrust actually works after seeing this video. I know a helicopter spins when it doesnt have the tail propeller, but is that also needed for thrust or could you achieve it without a tail prop on your helicopter?
    Thanks so much and best regards. :)

    If you put two engines on the rear, you would gain the stability AND the lift to add more controls.
