Air pressure powered all in one unit
Fans push high speed Air into tubes to blade fans and gives lift with a air return system back to unit.

This unique Quadcopter idea goes like this..

Top Duct Air intake (Intake vents on top, Remote Control Module inside)

Remote Control Module (Controls all motors and motor speeds inside unit)

Fan 1 (Moving at high speed drawing air into the unit)

Top Motion Design (Tilts Forward/Backwards, connected over servo motor)

              (Motion created by slightly cutting percentage off of air way on top)

Center Air Ducting Design (the Center duct is designed to direct the air flow into the 4 tubes and up to the blade box. Inside the Blade box is another designed fan, when air pressure is pushed against this fan it spins. Coming from the bottom of the Blade box is another tube connected to the bottom duct.

Bottom Motion Design ( Tilts Left/Right, connected under servo motor)

              (Motion created by slightly cutting percentage off of air way on bottom)

Fan 2 (Moving at high speed, this fan recycles air at the bottom of the unit. Pushing air into the top tubes while at the same time drawing air from the bottom of the Blade box back into the bottom ducting.)        (Hoping for a continuation of Blade motion)

Battery (A great power source with a lot of kick)

Bottom Recycle Air Duct (The battery sits inside, 4 tubes connected for air recycle)

And that is it for now... I know in one of the pictures it shows a winged bird on top. I was jumping way ahead by adding a glider when the testing should be focused on creating enough air pressure to get off the grounds.

    started wiring unit from bottom up.

    Connected battery wires 

    Set rechargeable plug on outside

    Connected motor wires

    Ran both wires up the unit and taped all wires out of fans way.

    Connected top motor wires and connected top motor duct to top of unit.

    TEST MODE.... connected battery to both motors and fans spin as designed.

    (This unit must be sealed tight)

    Far from done still work progress to be made.

    Thank you for viewing.

hello

Yes the entire design is done.

Designed in Blender.

I print piece by piece with around 20% infill.

I will update log today and post pictures.

  Are you sure? yes | no

i hope to see it  in action in video soon ;)

i made https://hackaday.io/project/47138-pure-mechanic-motor not very designed for air but i can add 1 or 2 designs for air if you  want (openscad designed)

i have a project for a flying drone the opposite way (need a working 3d printer to begin)

  Are you sure? yes | no

malvasio.christophe wrote 04/09/2018 at 06:10 point

hi

is the entire design done ?

in what cad ?

do you print in full (more than 100% infill) ?

  Are you sure? yes | no
