Description

See my channel for lot's of nerdy science stuff!
THE HILLER FLYING PLATFORM WORKED IN 1955 AND IT WAS USED TO SOME DEGREE AND SOMETIMES THE FLYING PLATFORM WAS SOLD BY OTHER COMPANIES, BUT THEY FADED AWAY. WHY? SO THEY ONLY FLY A METER OR SO OFF THE GROUND BUT WITH A BIKE, THAT'S ALL YOU NEED. A BIKE THAT DOESN'T NEED A ROAD. THE REASON THE FLYING PLATFORM WAS DOOMED FROM THE START IS THAT IT WAS DAGGY! STANDING POSITION LOOKS SO "EXPERIMENTAL" AND WOULD NOT BE NEARLY AS PLEASANT AS A BIKE!
SEE "FIRST MANNED FLIGHT OF AN ELECTRIC MULTICOPTER" VIDEO. THEY ARE REALLY DOING THIS SHIT! SO COOL!
AND AN ELECTRIC VERSION OF MY BIKE ADAPTATION OF THE FLYING PLAT-FORM WOULD MAKE A LOT MORE SENSE. LIKE MY COLORED CONCEPT, WHICH LACKS THE AIR-COOLED AIRCRAFT ENGINES. THE MOTOR IS IN THE BIKE PART, BEING ELECTRIC. THE BATTERY IS ALL AROUND (INSIDE THE DUCT AND FAERING). ALUMINIUM-ALLOY INTERNAL DUCTING ACTS AS BATTERY COOLER! COOL! EVEN MORE COOL IS THE ENVIRONMENTAL ASPECT. YOU COULD HAVE A THEME PARK (WITH ELECTRIC HILLY-BIKES). CONTROL SOFTWARE WOULD ENSURE A SOFT LANDING AND PERIMETER OF THEME PARK LIMITING, AND THE PILOT JUST STEERS AND MAKES THE HILLY BIKE DO WHAT THE PILOT WANTS (EDITED BY THE SOFTWARE). AND BECAUSE THEY ARE ONLY A METER OR SO ABOVE THE GROUND, ITS SAFER. AND THEIR SPEED IS INHERENTLY LIMITED TOO. AND THE COOL THING IS WITH ELECTRIC POWER YOU COULD POWER LOTS OF HILLY BIKES WITH RENEWABLE ENERGY (AND MAKE HEAPS OF PROFIT). WHEN THERE'S WIND, HAVE DISCOUNTS SO MORE COME WHEN THE POWER IS UP. THE SOFTWARE WOULD MAKE IT EASY TO FLY IN THE WIND AND HAVE A 20 KNOT CUT-OFF (ANY HIGHER WIND, WE DON'T FLY. WHEN IT'S REALLY WINDY, NO BUSINESS, BUT POWER WOULD GO TO GRID AND WE STILL MAKE SOME MONEY AND IT'S GOOD FOR THE ENVIRONMENT (AND SO MUCH FUN). RENEWABLES WORK OUT BETTER FOR THESE BECAUSE WE DON'T REALLY NEED STORAGE. BUT THIS WOULD BE A GOOD PLACE FOR "TURNING WATER-TANKS" ENERGY-STORAGE. A LARGE STEEL TANK (FULL OF WATER) IS SPUN, WITH A SMALL METAL BALL ON TOP AS A BEARING (THE ONLY TOUCHING BEARING). A GUIDE (LIMITER) IS ON THE BOTTOM AND IT ONLY TOUCHES MOMENTARILY (IN CASE OF A WOBBLE). IT ACTS AS AN ELECTRIC MOTOR (IT IS A MOTOR BY BEING DOCTORED). AND IT ACTS LIKE A GEN WHEN IT'S JUST SPINNING WITH INERTIA. THEN YOU COULD CHARGE MORE BATTERIES WHEN IT'S TOO WINDY BY CHARGING EXTRA BATTERIES WITH THE "TANK" WHEN THE WIND STOPS. AND WE HAVE SOLAR AS WELL WHICH IS MORE RELIABLE.
