(Not predicted in classical mechanics) Gyro armeture propulsion aka dean drive

the sound is only messed up in the first couple mins. Just giving a heads up on that

so they bring up another factor of classical mechanics: surges using phasing
Yo it’s a long video but it’s theory here is the dean drive or impulse drive is based off two (or more but always even number for balance) fast spinning armatures with weight (carriage) on the end. They have a even amount of armatures with weights in order to balance it and then pulse on the direction they want to go. in order to create these pulses of momentum thrusts, suppose you want to go forward and the two weighted armetures are swinging parallel to the ground. Directionally opposite of each other then they would pulse (if a clock too was horizontal or parallel to the ground) from the 9 o clock to the 3 o clock position on the clockwise side. The counter clockwise side 3 to 9. That is provided 12 o clock is the direction you’re trying to go At this point the other half of the clock or 1 pi distance is electronically commutatoredly toggled off. Then back on during the upswing at 90 degrees of the direction you’re looking to go or “zero line” So basically Check out the pics and link there’s more to it such as the carriage being 45 degrees ahead and so on

….lol commutatoredly

I always wanted to build a Dean drive. But never got around to it. What I found novel is that the Dean drive creates electromagnetic weight that adds on to the gyro weight as part of the cycle.

If you've read the Bod Lazar story you would realize the ET's use an impulse drive system using their gravity propulsion system. I believe Bob described it as Delta mode.

i built one 25 years ago
works but vibrates like crazy.

all the skeptics were like oh, it's just wiggling itself across the room due to friction.
works in a boat

problem is there's no bearings or strong enough materials to withstand the vibrations at the speeds and masses necessary to make it practical. Proof of concept tho.

so the trick is can you do it with a betatron?
T.B. Pawlicki first came up with the idea in his book 'how to build a flying saucer'.

The only way you'll ever convince skeptics (or anyone working professionally in science or engineering) is to achieve sustained deflection with a pendulum test. It's just too easy to fool oneself by misinterpreting results otherwise. :)

That's a really long video. :eek: Did they show experimental proof? If so, when? :)
