How ion propulsion in lifters, my Star Trek Enterprise model and other ionocrafts work, basically how ion wind works in these types of devices. This shows how the electric field between a sharp object connected to a smooth object cause movement in the direction of the sharp object and an ion wind in the opposite direction. To create this electric field I use my homemade high voltage power supply.
