January 2003 : A 5 meters wide Lifter has been built and tested successfully by the Professor Saburo Yokokura and the students (Takayuki Muroi, Takanori Haraguchi) from the Meisei University of Japan. . This big Lifter has done a stable hovering at 15 meters above the ground. The voltage used during this experiment was 41 KV DC and the current 10.7 mA. The weight has not yet been measured due to the big size of this device.

Notes from Jean-Louis Naudin : Congratulations to this Japanese team for this beautiful 5 m wide Lifter experiment. This very impressive Lifter demonstrates fully again that the Lifter technology can be scaled up and also that a Lifter craft is able to hover at a high level above the ground very easily.
