Could u plz explain me why the lifter in my video response produces thrust towards the larger capacitor plate(the Al foil) although lifters should produce thrust towards the smaller capacitor plate, irrespective of polarity used.

Thrust is not produced by assymetric capacitance. The high voltage potential between the anode and cathode ionizes the air in between them, producing a corona discharge. The charged particles move across the charge gap, and their movement draws along some uncharged air through simple friction. The coronal wind thus produces the thrust just as a fan would, only this fan uses electric potential to move air rather than rotating angled blades. This is why lifters do not glow or function in vacuum - they only work in air.

Has anyone used amorphous solar cells to power the Lifters? They are very lightweight as long as you don't embed them into some kind of protective container. Could be remote controlled and fly up and up. Might even be able to use the solar cells themselves as part of structure replacing the aluminum foil.

And - now - I turn 'ziss' - Off. .  bye bye,
positive output , lol but i really like the idea that this dude made such shape, not like others, only triangles...

OK here is an update. Don't think capacitors can be unbalanced and basically the high voltage can cause lift or forces for lift. For the fun of it check out this patent US7182295 one man flyer using a capacitor effect but I won't go there. The Tesla method with coils involves a flow that causes his ship to be devoid of inertia. Do you know what that means. His ship is lighter than a feather and takes off at great speed. Signaling means power drive unless it a sensitive detector of signals.
In part answer to the question posed above: I have personally made a lifter where the thrust changes direction when I swap the polarity over. The "reverse thrust" is miniscule, but it's definitely there. I've had arguments about it, and my wikipedia entry keeps getting taken down, but the facts remain, the popular perception that the thrust always goes "big to little" is provably incorrect, and more investigation into lifter "variants" needs to be done, by those of a practical disposition.

is this all upside down or is it real

Right, his mass essentially becomes zero, and he can travel at high velocities without ruffling his hair.. Which coils was he using?
