Magnet on drone just attract hate

  1. Jan 30, 2016 #1
    Hey guys its Saturday and the beer has been on menu. So the topic was " drones using magnet" and little magnets would be placed on propellers and thus they would circulate. Power generated from that could be used in micro controllers to control the movement of drone.

    Can someone tell me how to approach to this problem? How to calculate how much power my drone need to be lifted?

    And where do you get the additional power from that the rotors will need to keep running? As you won't get 100% efficiency (and probably not even 50%), the drone will need more power than before.
