It provides a very small force so you would need either extremely small
components or a huge (and dangerous because of the 10's of thousands of
volts needed) model. I think NASA is working with this, call them up and ask
them what they are doing .

*"Lifters" as they are called are currently in competition for weight
lifting.

Competition opening was Oct. 12, 2002. To win, you
"must lift 100 g of **_additional_** payload ( lead ) for about 5
seconds in a stable hovering".
Current leader has lifted 60 g.
