wow totally fake. look at how slow the fans are going, dipshits. there probably wouldnt be any air at all.

There is a fishing line holding it up. I've seen this one before :<

This can't be done. Look at the clouds below the left fan, there's a suspicious edge that makes the left fan look shopped in.

Damn it! Dave broke physics again.

No. This kind of balance is nearly impossible to achieve. It may be possible with specialized equipment; position sensors, fans that employ cowling and other shit to make a laminar air flow, and a fast(ish) microcontroller working as a proportional/integral/derivative math machine, outputting signals to servos controlling cowling direction (2d) and fan speed. The original source of this video employed "invisible string", available at any magic shop.

~source~: I'm a god damned engineer.

Also as an engineer, I want to say you took this as complicated as it possibly needed to be. You could have just said that the drag would pull the plane to the left. Even all that equipment wouldn't stop the drag. The best engineers are always the laziest when it comes to solving problems.

if this were to happen the plane would drop due to gravity as neither fan is causing up draft to lift the plane. the two fans would cancel eachother out   
   
but still looks cool

I think this is impossible. Maybe something to do with how perpetual motion is unachievable.

Also, the .gif is fake. The fan on the left seems to have been shopped in somehow. See the line in the clouds a few cms to the right of the bottom of the blades?

There is no force pushing it up, but gravity would still be pulling it down. Not possibl
