Our invention is the first solely ion propelled aircraft in history, that can both take off, and fly with its power supply onboard. See US patent numbers 10,119,527 and 11,161,631 (links provided below).
The patents specifically cover ion propelled flying machines that carry their power supplies, as of 08/07/2014. This device is orders of magnitude more efficient and powerful than anything like it for its weight.
I will explain further how it works in the following pages, including showing IR, UV images, and movies.
While many steering and stabilization control systems for this invention have been built and tested in the past, this is the first time that an agile and low power loss version has been fully designed and is currently being implemented.
Among the many presentations throughout the years, the inventor has demonstrated this device in flight with an onboard power supply to almost all of the following corporations and individual observers:

Story about the Wrights
We received a micro grant from the Stardust Startup factory in 2017 and have not forgotten them. If anyone else would like to invest, we will repay people according to how soon they invested and how well we do. It is possible there will be a large return, though it is not guaranteed. We are doing this for the good before money. We do however see the largest money making potential as a possibility.
Due to recent events in the news, we have been compelled to show early videos of our technology. Our invention is the only one in history that can take off and fly solely propelled by ions, carrying the power supply. It predates any other attempts, including MIT’s recent highly publicized effort at ionic flight. Theirs required a bungee cord and large wings, because they could not generate the necessary power to weight ratio without assistance.
A major recent discovery is that our device is already operating at a ballpark figure of 14 grams per watt of lift (more efficiently than quad-copters), not including electrical system losses. The electrical system produces a sufficient current, and a lot of voltage for its weight, however, the efficiency of it can be increased significantly. Since we have the necessary data on how to accomplish this, we are very close to achieving this goal.
