I think your problem here might be the power source. Hamsters are a tad
inefficient. I should think a cat would be much better.
A cat, you see, always lands on it's feet, as everyone knows. Simply
attach a slice of buttered bread onto his back - which everyone also
knows always lands buttered-side down.
Drop the dear kitty and the two effects will counteract each other in
such a manner as to spin from cat-side to buttered-bread-side with a
fairly high rate of rotation and neither will ever touch the ground.
Toss some kind of pick-up near the tabby's tail and you'd have all the
power you'd need. Perhaps enough to run a starship.
