First I've heard that the electrostatic lift demonstrated by
experimenter Townsend Brown is caused by "ions ejected". This
could be demonstrated as untrue by enclosing the entire flying
triangle in a very thin polyethylene bag, which would prevent
downwards ejection of ions, and as long as the bag is very
light, the unit should still lift off.

Charging a capacitor, once the charging is complete, does not
result in a stream of ions.  If it did, an air or vacuum
dielectric capacitor would not be able to hold a charge, and air
or vacuum capacitors can hold charge.

The phrase "interact with surrounding aire molecules to produce
thrust" phrase shows that someone is unaware of how even the
conventional rocket works.  Ejecting matter at high speed
requires no interaction with anything to produce thrust.

These claims smack of more disinformation, to prevent the public
from understanding that this is genuinely revolutionary
technology, and not some sort of 'ion rocket'.
