Self-Sustainable Flight (continued)

I’m mentioned previously that we should begin breeding a flying animal to fly on, but why wait?

Take for instance the hot air balloon. A type of fuel is used to create hot air which is used to create lift since hot air rises. Now take a solar heater(s) and pipe it into the balloon. The same result should occur.

To get this thing off the air I believe a few things are necessary:

1. How much air flow needs to be running through the balloon to create adequate lift for cargo (us)?

2. How many solar heaters would be necessary to create that lift?

3. What materials can we use to create the balloon if purchasing one is too $$$?

So here’s the scoop. I want to see a solar heater hot air balloon flying this year. I’m putting this idea out there for somebody to accomplish it.

I’m going to make a small scale version and then scale it up later on to see if my concepts are right. I’ll post some designs later down the road and you should post yours here too.
