My model of coanda effect flight sauser. The first successful test.
My video of my prototype vertical take-off and landing unmanned aircraft,
which uses the Coanda effect to generate lift by blowing air from a central
fan over its curved surface. It is a model of Aesir craft..

Just for information, Coanda effect is : "The Coandă effect /ˈkwɑːndə/
is the tendency of a fluid jet to be attracted to a nearby surface."
The VZ-9- AV Avrocar was a Canadian VTOL aircraft developed by Avro
Aircraft as part of a secret US military project carried out in the early
years of the Cold War. Two prototypes were built as "proof-of-concept" test
vehicles for more advanced USAF fighter and US Army tactical combat
aircraft. The Avrocar intended to exploit the Coandă effect to provide
lift and thrust from a single "turborotor." Thrust from the rotor was diverted
out the rim of the disk-shaped aircraft to provide anticipated VTOL-like
performance. In the air, it would have resembled a flying saucer. In flight
testing, the Avrocar proved to have unresolved thrust and stability
problems that limited it to a degraded, low-performance flight envelope;
subsequently, the project was cancelled in 1961

Homebuilt DIY Flying Saucer (Economy Model) Concept

That Moller skycar scares me. Have you seen the video? I can make one
that's safer and quieter, if not faster, at one tenth the cost. Ok, at least
I think so. This is just a concept sketch, but now you can test drive it,
thanks to blender's game engine. Our economy model experimental electric
powered parachute supports vertical take-off and landing and has built-in
collision reducing air bags, parachute, solar, fuel cells. Inflatable,
collapsible construction for easy storage and repair.
For entertainment purposes only. This "unit" has not been tested and I may
have accidentally booby trapped it with the dimensions I have, so if you
build it, you are on your own. The bottom fan could just as easily be a
Tesla Turbine, but unlike Tesla's craft, this one does not need to run on
transmitted power. We have on-board power now, thanks to modern
advancements in lithium ion batteries and fuel cells. Again, this is just
an economy model terrestrial craft. If you want cheap space travel, you're
asking for a piece of the sky. That would be like asking for fluoride-free
tap water, but it's your money...
