It looks like those turbojets have got electric starters on them. Wonder where they got them from. Anyone with a huge wallet can buy a small turbojet intended for RC use but I didn't know they came with electric starters.

Anyone remember the Scrap Heap Challenge where they built a pulsejet powered dragster? That seriously kicked donkey. :rolleyes:  


To quote Neo from the Matrix-



Oh that is WAY COOOOOOOOOL......How about a scaled up version, with bigger engines of course, blasting down the M4 or up the M1????.....

I reckon gas turbines are the way to go. Consider the Flymo, saddled with heavy, dirty two-stroke engines or dragging a 30m cable behind it. Surely a small turboshaft would be better? It would also make mowing the lawn a kick donkey experience.

Engineering is all about jet engines. If it hasn't got jet engines I don't give a rat's donkey.

In want of hobby space!  The kitchen table is never stable.  Still managing to get some building done.


I wonder what would happen if Evan and his chums started working on a jet-powered go-kart?
