Theoretically, you could create thrust using the pressure of the particles coming out of the saber if the containment field is breached. Which, is what happens underwater, outside of Wing, which is why you see them hold the sabers against the target before igniting them. Though it would be akin to holding on to two bottle rockets, and hoping for the best, which Io' was pretty desperate when he tried it. The amount of mass, and drag on the Gundam in the water would make the results of doing such at thing though, next to nothing just like in the show.

how about that part where Io used the Beam sabers as a way to rise up?
That actually seems somewhat viable in that he's creating a hot area of water which will rise and take him along with it if nothing else. Not true "thrust" really, but given how beam sabers tend to flash heat water, it seems as plausible as anything else.

The whole "Newtype mind-control Oldtypes" makes me want to ask these two questions:

1. Are Oldtypes really justified in fearing and hating Newtypes?

2. How does the normal Federation citizen think of Newtypes? Or are they even aware of their existent?

Also, the scene where Bianca uses her rifle is kind of briliant, if you think about it - why did the federation outfit their pilot with a normal telescopic scope instead of a more compact electroptical sight? Because the rifle is inteded to both be a self-defence and a survival tool, and you are going to need both of the telescopic scope's magnification power and rudgedness.

I remember that in the manga, in so far it has been hinted that the reason why that monk guy from South Seas Alliance could seduce so many people, including former EFF and Zeon soldiers, to his side is thanks to the research into brainwave by that Sexton guy. Or am I mistaking it?

Well, I don't follow the manga (EXA and Super Class G Gundam already drain my budget). But I would like to guess that it isn't full mind control but rather something close to D&D's suggestion spell.
