weight drop

Luc could hang 530 grams of weight off his rotor wheel by a string 1/2" off his bench top, drop the weight and see if the rotor wheel traveled 90 degrees to test the concept's feasiblity. It's easy to see how a smaller wheel with less magnets would go further from the same 530 gram, 1/2" drop test. Pictured below are two of the four offset rotor magnets positioned at 90 degrees, and again glued to the side on a thinner disk: Fattening disk thickness would reduce traveler magnet interference at the base.
