How I measure the high voltage and current used to fly my lifter or ionocraft. Also, I do a smoke test using an incense stick to show the airflow of the ionized air. For measuring the voltage I use a Fluke 80K-40 high voltage probe with an analog multimeter. For current I also use an analog multimeter/ammeter.
See how I made this lifter here:
For "How Ion Propulsion, Lifters and Ionocrafts Work"
I add ion propulsion to a Star Trek Enterprise model and do a smoke test in ""Star Trek Enterprise Model with Ion Propulsion added"
I also demonstrate this lifter/ionocraft In my "How to Make 30kV High Voltage DC Power Supply" video:
See details of the high voltage probe and my homemade high voltage power supply here:
And my main lifter webpage is here:
Watch my "Ion Wind Rotor" video for a slightly different design and some discussion about ion wind:
The pterodactyl was made and animated using Blender 2.59.
