ok thanks for the explanation

say i found a way to actually produce 400lbs of thrust, how much more thrust would i need to get the vehicle up to 30 feet
i.e. if the total weight of the vehicle was 400lbs fully loaded would 410lbs of thrust be enough to lift the load to 30 feet or will you need more thrust to get out of ground effect?
