The purpose of this test is to check if the Lifter is able to lift off and hover in a fully grounded Faraday cage.

Testing setup : The Lifter is placed in a Faraday cage ( 1 meter height and 0.5 m wide ). The Faraday cage is connected to the ground and the high voltage is sent to the Lifter through a special HV cable.

TEST RESULT : When the High Voltage is swiched on, the Lifter is hovering above the base, maintained on the base with 3 thin nylon threads to avoid that it escapes. ( see the photo below )

The Lifter work perfectly in a fully grounded Faraday cage
