How to Levitate using electromagnetic combustion engine

Step 1: Intro

In this instructables am going to show you a practical approach to levitation, before we dive in let me just briefly explain what LT2G is all about. Basic rule of flight is derived from newton's firs law of motion push and get push back. All form of flight known to man use the same underling principle, from spaceship to mini craft such as drones including current levitation technology, it all boils down to the heart of the engine.What makes this new breed unique is it's ability to levitation as a form o flight like a drone on steroid, rather then fight to upload a subject. The base station has always been the limiting factor in defying gravity without it the subject is free to move unlimited. LT2G is an electromagnetic combustion engine designed to levitate, levitation it's self is a result of electromagnetic vibration to lift it upwards see theoretical video, quite freckly the LT2G is a reverse engineering to a typical combustion engine instead of combustion to spin the wheel it uses horsepower to combust. As much as much as it's made for flight but the working mechanism is unknown as of yet.

This is an ongoing project so you are welcome to make some tinkering of your own,the hole objective of this instructables is to get you tinkering rather then a spoon feed, for terms and condition of levitation check out m blog post Laws Of Levitation with that been said lets get down to it.

Step 2: Components

If you had read my Mechatronis blog post i had mentioned that i used practical components to my disposal so to get your components first you gonna need a milk shake from MacDonald no kidding, one that comes with a thick straw while you at it pick up 3 lolly pop, 3 click pens ones with a spring inside some rubber bands the ones that are used to wrap bank notes 3 of that will do, supper glue and most importantly magnets and enameled copper wire of course power source 12volt battery the higher the amp the better finally screws will need about 6 of that.

Step 3: Structure

The structure is not symbolic it's great for balance before we put the components together lets focus on buliding a civil structure.

First thing first the material used, Aluminum would be the optimum material but for this project i used package cushioning the once used to protect fragile items during shipment. see the pictures above i didn't use any measurements to be precise you can always do measurements of your own whats most important is that you get a star like structure.

Step 4: Piston

The piston is the part that's going to apply moving force(momentum) to the stationary spring loaded tube. I discovered that there are two methods to do that.

First Method

1.attaching the screw to one end of the lolly pop stick, note that the screw is merely to give the piston surface area to have optimum energy transfer between the piston and the spring when they collide.

2.Pierce a hole middle of the lolly pop stick and insert a rubber band throughout ,note the rubber band must be able to be tide at the top without being stretched.the more its stretched the more stronger the hit but it requires powerful magnetic force to pull it down.

3. Glue the bar magnets on the other end of the lolly pop stick.

The up and downside to this method is there's gonna be high acceleration with little mass that effects momentum considering how much weight does the enameled wire wight.

Step 5: Spring Loaded Tube

Remember the MacDonald's straw cut that in half attache the screw on one side of the spring you got from the click pens and glue the other side of the spring to the metal plate(if it fits the shape it will do) and load it inside the tube then glue the plate to the straw. Pierce a hole on the top of the structure so that the tube can go in then glue the plate to the structure.

Step 6: Electromegnet

For you to make a powerful electromagnet here's are some guide lines to keep in mind.

-Long electromagnets are weaker then short one. Here i kept my electromagnet short and think

-The wider the radius the weaker is the force.

-Steel core makes the electromagnet strong ,in this case the core is occupied, so i places the steel on the side of the straw, Note you at least need three row of winding before placing the steel or else there will be an interference between the bar magnet inside and the steel outside.

When placing the bar magnet in the electromagnet make sure it's in repel mode(current direction), the piston should be repelled downwards so the rubber band can stretch and pull it back the piston when the electromagnet is off.

Electromagnets gets really hot depending on the gauge of wire used 0.8 mm wire will do but it's important to put a heat sink between the tube and the electromagnet, a thin plate of aluminium cut to size from a coke bottle will do the trick.

Step 7: Relay and 555 Timer

Since we are using more then one piston a single pole double pole relay will do the trick.The relay's job is to switch the electromagnets on and off at different intervals(see how to connect a relay pic), so when the center electromagnet is On the two crossing will be Off and when the center goes Off the other two go On creating a vibration as the piston hits the spring with every Off there is a combustion(Lift) and with every On there's is an exhaustion. Once again frequency id key the 555 timer's acts as time delay it's job is to increase or decrease frequency .here's a good instructables on setting up the 555 in astable mode. 555 Timer

    i will be doing a 3D simulation to explain my project in more detailed so every one can understand the model.

    let me say this, the piston and the structure including the magnet that pushes it down are two different body as far law of motion is concerned. the piston is attached to the structure by a rubber band alone ,therefore it is free to move only effected by the magnetic force. the point here is the piston is being launched by the rubber band after it has been stretched by the magnetic force(note it is still independent from the structure) like a rocket launched up then hits a sealing(the force acting here is between the piston and the band)- we can all agree that there is a temporary lift- when the piston moves down it is not being launched down rather pushed (the forces acting here is between the structure(including the magnet applying the force) and the piston.

    As you state yourself, there is no external force in this device, only internal ones. If you forget about what's inside and imagine your system as a black box, then there is no way Newtonian mechanics will ever make it follow an upward trajectory: no external force = no acceleration whatsoever.
    This is no more than a convoluted contraption whose sole purpose is to have the whole system vibrate. Sure, you can actually make a self-vibrating system move in a given direction, if you cleverly use some type of frictional asymmetry, that will provide you with a non-zero-averaging external force (think brushbots, for instance). But other than that little "trick", there is no way your design will levitate, let alone move in any non-random direction.
    I am not sure what you are trying to demonstrate here, sorry.

    I was trying to be brief here to avoid having to repeat my self, that's why i provided extra links on my blog above.

    but am glad it got you tinkering

    Let me put things in perspective i had said LT2G uses "horse power to combust" like any other engine the motion of the piston are co-joined . Like i had mentioned in step 4 piston "there are two methods in achieving that" see brief pic attached!

    with every engine when fuel combusts in the engine and pushes the piston downwards ,the piston then gives some thrust to the wheel (180* rotation) in doing so it also pushes the second piston in position so it can later provide the other (180* rotation) to complete the 360* needed by the wheel. That"s what makes the engine more powerful.

    Here's a simple lever balancing scale analogy i used in my blog .Imagine the two piston placed each on either side of the scale when one piston gets pulled down(whatever the force may be) the other piston on the opposite hand will move up.Motion of the downwards inertia is transferred to the other piston in doing so they aid each other in both up and down motion like pedaling a bicycle! that's where the extra force is coming ,the energy is conserved not a 100% there's no external force however.

    Yes there is a loss in energy but it proved enough to overcome it's weight and no you are wrong the up and downwards forces are not near equal.The upward force is being launched up by the rubber band alone more like a free fall but upwards(not ignoring gravity) meanwhile, the bar magnet and electromagnet push each other, the piston is not launched down it's pushed so it can in turn stretches the rubber band to launched the piston like a rocket.

    Yes i was able to maintain the frequency that's why i use more then one piston, as you see on the beginning of the video i struggled to lift it using my hands but i adjusted frequency as i went. the 555 is what can maintain, increase or decrease frequency not the relay in the test i used the relay meaning my hand was switching the relay not the electromagnet so when my hand is removed the current is still flowing am just simply switching between the two electromagnet.

    hope i answered most of your questions as for the fraudulent part of the video the proof is in the pudding DIY! see my 3D simulation soon

    I see how upward inertia of the piston momentarily overcomes gravity to lift the device, but I don't see how this device eliminates the reciprocating downward inertia. Since the upward and downward forces of the piston would be near equal, where are you getting the additional force that counters gravity? The energy you are putting in to the system with electricity to the electromagnet is even being partially lost in the form of heat when compressing the spring, so your upward energy is less than your downward energy.

    Can you explain where the extra upward energy is coming from?

    Your video also shows you manually tapping a wire to a battery contact. Your description says that you achieve levitation by maintaining a "resonate frequency". Are you achieving this frequency, and maintaining it for the duration of the demonstration, manually by hand?

    I am trying to be nice here in expressing my doubts about the purported science of this project, but I seriously suspect your results and the video demonstration to be fraudulent.
