What mechanisms exist for generating lift on a static object?
Condition is: Other than propellers
I know that generating lift on a static object in a sense of anti-gravity for e.g. drone is not possible, to my knowledge, however which current up to date physics application can "cheat/emulate" generating lift on a static object.
Could something else except classic propellers be used to make an object (e.g. size of a 2-3 feet long vehicle/drone model) flying?
I would like to know answer to my question from "physics"point of view, before going to engineering room and finding more facts there.
So, are there other possibilities except classic propellers?
You can touch my question from 2 points of view:
1) Amateur - meaning I don't have access to the latest technologies they are using for experimental flying machines in the army
2) Godlike - meaning I have access to the latest technologies they are using for experimental flying machines in the army
