ELECTROMAGNETIC RING-RAIL MOTOR

Concept Design - 2007

Note: A helicopter accident was the trigger for this Concept Design which dates from 2007. My questioning - why are helicopters so dangerous? Could I design a fail-safe mechanism? ...... How things have moved on in the 11 years since that time! Particularly in regard to drone development and design. The following design development pages, which date from that time are added Jan 2020.
