“Where is the drive” – I am often often often asked:
Here, the discus has basically “no drive” – there is no engine, also no jet-power-engine or propeller. There are “only” the two opposing rotor discs and their rotary movements (magnetically supported and also magnetically driven like a magnetic levitation train) which are electrically powered from the battery-blocks; and the effects resulting from the rotations are used differently: First, the initial boost at the start – then as float drive in flight stage 3 – and thirdly in flight stage 4, the rotational movements (merely by increasing the rotational speed) produce our shock-wave on which the discus rides.
This flight system is a self-contained system and differs from conventional flight systems in that there are no annoying side effects that must be combated or eradicated (to use instead of combat). Thus, the batteries in the rotors are no annoying obstacles, but a valuable source for energy production and its return. Whether you want it or not: fuel or (as with this flight system) batteries must be transported with an aircraft, but here within the discus flight-system, the weight of the batteries is converted into electricity by the centrifugal force generated during rotation. The system of energy recovery by the centrifugal force of the batteries is comparable to the system of a magnetic levitation train.
Before a magnetic levitation train sets in motion, individually controlled electromagnets (with the help of the magnetic fields in the stators) are pulling the magnetic levitation path upward. After “lifting” the magnetic levitation train current is sent through the stators packets, which generate an electromagnetic traveling field. The entire magnetic levitation path is thus “dragged” along the magnet rails without contact. When braking, this game works in the reverse order – the resulting energy flows back into the power grid. Batteries and generator/brake (tied up to a “centrifugal power pack“) are comparable to the suspension track. The generator is comparable to the “brake” of a magnetic levitation train.
Here in the discus flight system, its all about “braking” – and nothing extra has to be installed for this energy recovery. Principally, it does not matter (for flight time extension) how much current this brake generator brings: the magnet rails already exist, (the struts of the rotor disks) also the “centrifugal weight” is a system component (the batteries) – only the generator (the magnetic levitation rail brake) is an addition, and with its own weight (by the centrifugal force) itself becomes a centrifugal-force-power-generator.
