Tesla's Notes on Unipolar Dynamo


Otis T. Carr has stated that he learned directly from Nikola Tesla.  Ralph has mentioned that he'd seen Carr often reference a coveted binder of notes .  Other researchers we've interviewed, who'd met the late Carr, confirm that he greatly valued those notes, which have gone missing.  Although Carr's toy kit plans and US Patent don't provide explicit wiring details, one of the Pod members - an Electrical Engineer who prefers to remain anonymous - suggested the unipolar dynamo is a probable solution to invoking the rotation and counter-rotation that Carr says is needed to cause lift.  Experiments performed by other pod members supports this theory.

In the video, below, I attempt to provide an overview of how the OTC-X1 craft may be wired by leveraging the principles presented in Tesla's notes.




The Hollow UTRON


The pods say that the hollowed-out part of the UTRON should be spherical, not cone shaped as seen in the illustration.  An inner spherical hollow should consume approximately 50%-75% of the inner volume of the UTRON.  The OTC-X1 machine shop schematics suggest overall UTRON dimensions and scale.




This image , along with the schematics, may help illustrate to your local machinist the  design you may have in mind.  The illustration above employs a snap-together fastener that has not yet been completely designed, tested, or manufactured by anyone that I know; however, I have seen one UTRON that had employed threads.


A Threaded Hollow UTRON

These very fine machine threads were located at the periphery of the UTRON's spherical hollow and appeared to have been milled into the concave sections in one piece.  Male threads appeared to have extended just a few millimeters above the hollow of one cone to meet the female threads inset into the hollow of other.


The threaded design allowed the two halves to be snuggly screwed together, such that the seam at the equator was imperceptible.  At first gander, I didn't notice it was a two-piece UTRON.  It was a nice bit of machining work.  Unfortunately, we have no schematics for this threaded design.


Will the threaded UTRON be water-tight or would it leak?

It may or may not leak.  I also wondered weather vibration through normal operation would loosen the two halves, causing its contents to spill.


Carr's Toy Kit plans mention putting electrolytes inside.  If the threads aren't enough to make it water-tight, I thought that perhaps a fine groove could machined into the flat faces of the half cone (between the threads and the equator) to accommodate a small rubber grommet.  This way, it may create a fluid-tight fit while still allowing the UTRON to be snuggly screwed together with no gaps appearing at the equator.


Mercury!  What if I put mercury inside a hollow UTRON?


NOT a good idea.

Do NOT attempt to fill aluminum UTRONS with mercury, as so many people have suggested on-line.  MERCURY DISSOLVES ALUMINUM ON CONTACT.  Video demonstrations are available on  YouTube.
