I have been trying to calculate the lift drag and power requirements of this hypothetical flying saucer which uses an external maglev fan. Problem is I am an electrical engineer and not sure if I got my numbers right. Is there anyone who can check my numbers and give me an idea if I am on the right track power wis?Basically it is circular with a 40 foot diameter engine payload area. Around the edge are attached 2' x 10' fan blades spaced two feet apart that ride on a maglev linear induction motor joined at the fan root. I have attached my calculations. Thank you.
