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:

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:

The pterodactyl was made and animated using Blender 2.59.
