Alexey Chekurkov Graviflyer

Has anyone figured out how Alexey Chekurkov's Graviflyer works?  He just sent it to Charles Crawford to replicate the effects, and it arrived this week. It's currently reassembled and awaiting testing.

It looks like it's using a phase-inverter to decouple the quantum-flux from the Heisenberg oscillator in order to produce
a standing wave that levitates the craft on a plane intersecting the 12th dimension and our own by way of an inter-spacial flexure. The cool part is that it doesn't even seem to be using dilithium crystals which are quite scarce at the moment.

TLDR: Shoddy looking construction, shaky camera, obvious stick poking into the ground, puppeteering, etc. etc. etc.

Is this an early April Fools Prank? If so, you just made my month bro.

It's an obvious hoax.  I've seen posts on how it could have been suspended by wires. Alexey can also be seen stepping over "something" that we can't see in another video.  He likely uses different methods for the different videos, but they all involve very thin wires (sometimes rigid wires).  The pendulum motion of the device is also another giveaway as it seems to be dangling from a point very near its top.
