i now have a video after simply programming the servo motors in the Lego car==>

I put the finest inertia drive candidate in the bath. The boom plays merry hell. This is meant to give us some drive in space

I've been trying to run the math on the servo motor with semi-circle cam
at the moment I have:

K.E = half * mass * metres per second squared

so for the slow half of the revolution ==>
K.E = .5 * 10 * 5 sq
= 625 and took 10 units of time

fast half of the revolution ==>
K.E = .5 * 10 * 25 sq
=15,625 and took 2 units of time

so then we adjust our figures to the time it took
15,625/5
=3125
625*5
=3125


it looks good like that, ie. K.E cycle is 625(3125) slow vs. 3125(15625) fast
-- maybe we are moving forwards?

Heya fellas- still pushing to get this drive out to space

here's a demonstration of a ram wheel inertia drive. This type of drive can possibly be used as a propulsor in space. In my channel there are videos of my other models. It's a simple apparatus that uses the pushed weight to move forward, and it is brought back for another movement very slowly. This is repeated until a 360 degree rotation or rev is accomplished ==>

I also have a drawing of the rotary servo inertia drive done ==>
