Electromagnetic Lambretta

April 19, 2020 · in Automotive · · 8 · 1.7K

Good evening, after a few weeks of forced confinement, I have dedicated part of my time to creating this model.

I hope you are all well and that the corona virus has affected you the least.

I explain the pot

Electromagnetic Lambretta, modified Lambretta model with a turbogenerator that excites the electromagnetic plates.

Very famous model in 2090.

This magnetic repulsion system was widely used in multiple vehicles.

In this case we took advantage of an old Lambretta chassis and it was modified by adding a homemade turboshaft, a reduced version, of those used years ago in helicopters.

The turbine is fed with liquefied gas at high pressure and maximum efficiency supplies a torque of 3500 KNewtons / m.

The turbine spins a 500KvA generator, which powers the magnetic discs. These three discs are capable of generating enough force to levitate a mass of 245 kg.

The thrust is achieved through the exhaust of the turbine since the friction is minimal, a small thrust allows to advance at high speed while maintaining a constant acceleration.

  1. Very well done, Carmelo! Interesting idea.

  2. Nice idea and executed very well!

  3. Love this!

    It may need a bit of tuning, though, as it is leaning over a bit 🙂

  4. Great imaginative build!

  5. I love your build Carmello!

  6. No more flat tires. Way to go.

  7. perfect, the bike, the girl, beautiful
    for next model, for magnetic discs, try old lithium 3V batteries - 2032 or 2016,
    reminds me of matrix hovercraft discs and underside has nice texture
