It's a nice model, but what's the point of mounting it that way? I guess for 'free floating' but then it needs the guide wires.

The concept is called Tensegrity. Kind of an engineering art form, and IMO it communicates the idea of free floating really well in this case.

Its one of the most interesting tensegrity display Ideas I've seen yet, and I agree.

But if one went to the trouble to nail the balance point like that, it seems like embedding something like this into the ISD would be going the full 9:

That's some awesome work!!! That case is more of an equipment cabinet than a model ""box." Great execution of such a large project! - MT

And it flies!

 

Nice! Just wish the camera wasn't warping the image so much. The buildings looks like they were bobbing and swaying whenever he moved. If I didn't have a stronger constitution...🤢

try conductive paint, paint the booster tops with it, have the power then supplied via the magnets on the arm to the boosters and do away with external cables
