This is a new one to me. Please move to a more appropriate topic if it has already been created.

Video just posted by the San Diego Air & Space Museum (SDASM) on YouTube, a lecture on Aero-Electric Propulsion by Vjekoslav Gradecak, described as a "student of Nikola Tesla's work" and a researcher at Ryan Aeronautical. There's even an illustration of a flying saucer at the end of the video for good measure.

Google'ing Mr. Gradecak's name does come up with some Ryan publications and patents on the subject. That said, this stuff is waaaaaayyyyy beyond my knowledge. Thought others here might have more to add.

Hi.

Just extracted Gradecak's FS from the aforementionned February 1962 Ryan Reporter article.
