Flying

Tags: fly, leonardo

I gave my last class at the University of Florence today. I'm flying to Jerusalem tomorrow. And never better said. I am going to check the flying machine that I have designed, and it will allow me to fly great distances in a few hours. I showed Leonardo my project, and he was impressed with the way I solved the machine's support in the air and its movement. At the moment Leonardo devotes all his time to designing weapons for the Medici. I can't count on his help.

I have discovered that in the air there are two kinds of very thin alternative layers superimposed and formed by characteristic elements. I have called who make up the first class as sustainers layers and power, and I have wanted to call the others as landing and reducers layers.

I just had to design the holder with the right geometric properties to be able to select the different layers of air. When blades hit the supporting layers, the machine is driven up and up. By spreading or folding the blades, the height can be stabilized. When I want to descend, the holding knives fold back, and the landing blades are unfolded, impacting on the landing layers and cause the machine to descend.
