I have tried antigrav with and without linier motion machines and ion drives with linear motion machines and neither work it just floats back to the ground. Im also using a sky anchor if that is a problem.

Have you tried hover pads/rings?

Also, post your snapshot, or at least a screenshot from low angle, that way we can see where the problem is.

Your setup is good, the thrusters + linear motion engines can maintain about 183ft in R&D while anchored (the max anchor height), IF the anti-grav is powered.

Anti-grav needs power to function, so add some solar panels would be a good idea. Also, anti-grav does not provide any lift by itself, it just makes your tech lighter. So if you need to maintain height when the base is not powered, add some hoverpads/hoverings. Watch the direction hoverings are facing, you can easily put them upside down by mistake.
