second _pivot axis perpendicular to said first pivot axis: a second gear segment on said control stick; a second pair of electrical circuit elements similar to said first pair of electrical circuit elements mounted on said bracket means; and separate gears for controlling said second 5 pair of electrical circuit elements, said gears being mounted at opposite ends of said second gear segment so that only one gear is rotated from a reference position at any moment.

22. The combination as defined in claim 21 wherein !f) each electrical circuit element contains a shaft spring loaded to a reference position.

23. The combination as defined in claim 22 wherein the electrical circuit elements are variable resistances.

24. The combination as defined in claim 23 together j-with flying apparatus composed of a structure supporting discharge electrodes for causing adjacent air molecules to become electrically charged spaced from a grid of electrical conducting means for neutralizing the charge on electrically charged molecules whose chargc was caused oq by said discharge electrode, said grid comprising four electrically isolated sections of substantially the same size, and means for connecting one terminal of a high D.C. potential source to said electrodes and a second terminal to each of the four sections of said grid through different 03 ones of said variable resistances.

25. In apparatus for thrust generation in atmosphere, composed of spaced emitting and collecting electrodes energized with a voltage sufficiently high to be capable of causing ionization for effecting an ionic discharge from 30 an emitting electrode to produce thrust on at least one of the electrodes of said apparatus arising from elastic molecular and particle collisions occurring in the space between said electrodes during molecule and particle movement in the direction from the emitting electrode to 33 the collecting electrode, said collecting electrode being composed of crossed grid wires of conductive material forming an open surface that is generally normal to the direction of molecule and panicle movement, the improvement wherein said crossed grid wires have a diam- 40 eter of at least 8 mils.

26. The apparatus as defined in claim 25 wherein the collecting electrode ends are covercd by a layer of conductive material.

27. In flying apparatus composed of a structure sup- 45 porting discharge electrodes for causing adjacent air molecules to become electrically charged spaced from a grid of electrical conducting means for neutralizing the charge on electrically charged molecules whose charge was caused by said discharge electrode; and means for 50 applying a high D.C. potential between said electrodes and said grid to cause air to move from said electrodes toward said grid to provide a propulsion force for said flying apparatus; the improvement wherein said neutralizing grid comprises outer peripheral frame members and 55 a centrally positioned inner frame between which the conducting means comprising the neutralizing grid are mount-
