Re: jet ped???

That would be sweet as like a secondary propulsion system. He said the bike ones weigh what, 13 pounds? If you could somehow rig it up that you flip a switch to start it when you need the extra power. Think if you had one on each side mounted. sweeeeeeet.

BEST way to win a Darwin Award. EVER.

Re: jet ped???

Yeah, they are simple. But... one of the biggest problems to overcome is how to get it started. Before it will light off you have to get a large quantity of air moving thru the engine. If you remember all those movies of the V1 Pulse Jet Powered guided bombs being launched, they were all rocket assisted to get them up to speed and make their engines work properly.

I made a pulsejet when I was in highschool... The are veerry loud.

He should have made a lockwood hiller engine. Semi self starting... There is a trick to it,. but you can get it to start without any forcing air.

Re: jet ped???

That bike is more like a scramjet. It ignites air passing through it with no moving parts.
