I want to know if it is possible for one or two ducted fans to lift a person off of the ground? Answered
I know it's a crazy and outlandish thought, but I've always wondered if it's possible. I know the Mythbusters tried it with the plans from Futurehorizons.net and failed but Is there a way to fix the problems and make the 'fan-pack' work? Maybe not even in a 'fan-pack' but maybe more of a VTOL type vehicle, but not so complex as the Moller SkyCar. Like the Mythbusters explored, I would want something that the 'average Joe' could create. If anybody has any ideas or even guidance on how to do it, such as hp of an engine, rpm's what to make the ducts and propellors from etc, then I would really love to know what everybody thinks.
