Rick Todish is the owner and president of Future Horizons. He has been an active free-energy and antigravity experimenter and researcher for over 16 years. An inventor since his early youth, he became interested in electronics at the age of 5. By the time he was 13 he had successfully flown his first ion-propulsion antigraviy craft. He has devoted his life to his continued efforts into developing advanced, suppressed, and strange technologies such as Rife technology, ion-propulsion, and many other non-conventional devices. He served in the Marine Corps for 4 years after which he worked as an engineer for several years.

His company, Future Horizons, was founded in order to bring these incredible technologies to the public. Mr. Todish does not believe in wasting his or his company's efforts or funds on patents. He instead has simply began manufacturing his various devices for sale to the public in order to get the technology out into the world. Future Horizons has introduced new devices and plans on a monthly basis such as a Hoverboard, an armored battlesuit for military use, an ion-propulsion craft and more. Plans are in the works for many incredible new devices to be introduced later this year such as a free-energy prototype generator, a holographic projector, a cloaking device suit and a flying jetpack. Some of his incredible devices will be featured on the Discovery channel later this year.
Although ion propulsion technology was invented back in the 1960s, it has never been utilized as a means of providing thrust for aircraft. NASA recently was the first to make use of this amazing technology when it successfully launched its Deep Space 1 probe from Cape Canaveral on October 24, 1998. The primary mission of the NASA probe was to test new experimental technologies like the ion engine. The Deep Space 1 spacecraft will also fly by a near-Earth asteroid as close as 10 kilometers above the surface.

The probe's ion engine provides about 10 times the specific impulse (ratio of thrust to propellant used) of chemical propulsion. The ion engine offers significant mass savings for future deep-space and Earth-orbiting missions with high delta v requirements. The NASA ion propulsion engine is designed to produce a very small amount of thrust(about 20-92 mN) for long periods of time in order to attain amazingly fast speeds by constantly accelerating over long periods of time without carrying enormous amounts of fuel.

There's only one problem: ion propulsion will not work in the vacuum of space because there are no air molecules for the ions to interact with... therefore there is no thrust. To solve that problem, NASA utilized Xenon gas as a type of propellant. By injecting small amounts of the gas into the ion-engine, they are able to cause ionic interaction with the Xenon and produce thrust.

Deep Space 1 is the first spacecraft to use ion propulsion as the primary propulsion system. However, commercial applications are closer than you think! We have developed a 3-ft triangular antigravity disc that can take off and land vertically... hover, tilt and bank in mid-air. Yes this is FOR REAL!

Credit must go out to many of the early ion propulsion pioneers from the 1960's who blazed the trails for us into this exciting field. Special credit to:

Built from carbon fiber composite materials and using no moving parts or propellers, our ion propulsion craft utilizes the same basic concepts as the NASA probe but with a different approach. Our goal is to produce as large of levels of thrust as possible (while keeping efficiency in mind) for much shorter flight duration for use within our atmosphere. Our antigravity craft flies on pure electricity. The problem now is improving efficiencyŚ getting enough lift from a given grid area and a given amount of energy. Present models get power through a feeder cable, dangling down like an umbilical cord. We hope to fly a model with a self-contained power supply, perhaps by the end of the year.

The basic concept utilizes a pair of lightweight wire grids separated by approximately 2 inches looking somewhat like an old-fashioned bedspring. When a high voltage DC charge is applied to these wire grids, ions are shot from the positive upper emitter grid toward the negatively charged lower wire grid. As the charge leaves the emitter grid, the ions interact with the surrounding air molecules and are attracted downward by the negatively charged grid.

It is known that air molecules and ions are elastic on impact at low velocities. High velocities have a tendency to cause molecular disassociation with accompanying secondary ionization. This secondary ionization will cause a net decrease in the reactionary effect or thrust due to a reversal of direction of the now oppositely charged particles. With higher efficiencies in mind, the objective with this technology is to move as much mass as possible at a low velocity or energy where the maximum amount of elastic collision takes place with a minimum of destructive molecular disassociation and secondary ionization.

The ions interaction causes air to flow through the lower grid causing a downward draft beneath the craft. The contraption rides on this shaft of air, getting lift just like a helicopter does, by sucking air down from the top. The fluid dynamics are very similar to that of a regular helicopter but instead of using a rotor and blades, we create the downward air flow electrically by means of ionic discharge. The ions act on the air and push down on it.

Steering control is accomplished by applying different voltages to various parts of the craft. The part with the high voltage gets more lift, hence tilts up. The shape of the Ionocraft does not matter, any shape will fly. By a simple joystick control, the pilot can lift any edge of the craft, producing pitch and roll as if the craft had elevators and ailerons. He can put the craft into any flight attitude-nose up or down, or banking to either side. Like the tilt of a helicopter rotor, this inclination pushes the craft forward, rearward, or sideways.

Some benefits of an ion-propulsion engine are as follows: The Ion propulsion antigravity craft flies on pure electricity. The problem now is improving efficiency - getting enough lift from a given grid area and a given amount of energy, Present models cannot yet lift their own power supplies, they get power through a feeder cable, dangling down like an umbilical cord.We hope to fly a model with a self-contained power supply, perhaps by the end of the year.

Ultimately, the ionic drive may prove more efficient than either propellers or jets as a method of aircraft propulsion. It will achieve lift with a lower expenditure of energy and fuel than existing forms of aircraft.
