    hello, i will be experimenting with a exotic propulsion system. it will use a disc shaped body, in other words flying saucer. i do not have the skills to build the body so how and where can i get it done cheaply.? how much would it cost?

    Start small and get some RC'er's interested in helping you. If you can excite them, buy the materials and they'd do it for it free. If not, find some kids, maybe at the RC fields, that are into balsa type models, and they'd jump on it just for the fun and the act of building something different.

    I'll do it. All I need is a 9-10,000ft^2 1,000M^2 building and around 100,000 dollars in machine tools. Furthermore, if you find it unsatisfactory, you can keep all the parts! Will this be ala "rule of squares" propulsion? Variable vane, Tesla voltage potential difference, or standard antigravity?

    PM with specifications, will advise.

    I'd add a couple of zeroes behind the machine tooling cost. Have you priced NC machinery lately?

    Scraw, forgive the unbelievers. Why don't you give us more information and a few drawing, perhaps. One never knows, you might be onto something new.

    Wow, some of you guys are a little overconfident in your knowledge and ability...you arrogant little sissies!:ban:..although I admit very funny..So..First thing I noticed is none of you geniuses thought to ask about his propulsion system..Wow..what brilliant minds we have on here...;)
