Question

Asked by: rav
Subject: New Experimental Results
Question: Dear Sandy Kidd & Friends:

Check out the link below to see how oscillatory torque produces propulsive rotation of the gyro:
http://relmachine.blogspot.com/2017/01/watch-ror-of-gyro-resonant-oscillatory.html

This is conclusive proof (a second time, the first time being my video posted on my blog back in May 2016) that the gyro can be used for propulsion using pulsating or oscillating torque. Further the frequency of pulsation has to be with a specific range (determined by the physical characteristics and the angular momentum of the gyro involved).

This is exactly analogous to an LC circuit, wherein the resonant frequency range and the smooth * strong response of the circuit are linked to the physical characteristics of the circuit, including the inductance of the inductor involved.

Enjoy!

 Here's another way to oscillate a gyro and get lift:

 Hi Rav and Nate

I have taken the trouble to look at both of your videos and cannot understand what it is that they are supposed to show - perhaps you could elucidate. As you have obviously put a great deal of work into each machine and you obviously believe you have something to demonstrate it would be a shame if your efforts were wasted for the sake of a simple explanation of what you believe the video shows.

Now I have taken the trouble to look at your videos perhaps you will return the favour and look at mine and put up you opinion as to what happens next......

Kind regards

NM
