so anyone ever make a psulse jet motor? seems kind of simple. anyone ever stick one onto a r/c heli? i know there is/was a few fullscale helis that use that method.

only you have the power to make no difference!

Correct me if I'm wrong, but isn't a pulse jet the type with no rotating parts? It's a series of repeated, contained explosions. I've seem them put on planks but never a heli.

I think that I remember seeing plans in back of old Popular Mechanics mag for a single seat chopper you could build with a pulse jet engine in each main rotor blade tip to make the rotor head spin.

wow model pulse jet helicopter. never thought about it,, think of the power to weight ratio,,

2 question,,

Pulse jet engine would be useless in a heli, but fun on a boat, car or plane. I believe they're illegal in the UK cos they're so bloody load.
1) can you buy pulse jets small enough ??
I think you'd have to make it
2) how do you run the fuel to the spinning head ??
Up the main shaft using a swivel coupling at the base.

Are you going to give it a go ?

Hey Yug I dont think they are band in the U.K. as they fly them at the British N.A.Ts on control line models and someone put 1 on an rc plank it was in a model mag last year I think.
Dont think I would wont to be in the cage with a control liner tho
and its usualy older guys flying them!

im thinking of building a small one & sticking itinto a plane. if it works well i'll build another and see if i can stick them onto a heli. might have to stick it into a 90 size .
in the plane it seems bigger will be easier to build

My dad had a control line Mig 15. It was all aluminum and had a Tiger Jet pulse jet engine. It was insanely loud. We only flew locally it a few times. Every time we flew it the cops would show up and ask us to stop. People were complaining about the noise.
It was a lot of fun! We would fire it up in the driveway on the 4th of July. It would rattle the windows of every house on the street! It would only run about 10 seconds on the ground before the tail pipe was white hot!
And of course, the police would show up and ask us not to do it again. One time a Cop pulled in the driveway and told us to keep it down. When he looked at the Mig, he smiled and asked if we would start it for him. After it was shut down, he said "Wow that was crazy. Please don't do it again." Then he gave my dad his phone number and asked my dad to call him if we were going to fly it!
The police used to be so cool... What happened

wow that twin jet was awsome!!!

this video explains the jet a little and then they run it.

i have a few spare nitro pipes so i was thinking that with a nitro carb (for a control valve) might make a simple engine. might try it today.
my thinking is carb over exhuast intake, and the exhuast exite may need to be opened up more.
this would be just as a test not to run on the heli or plane- just a test point

Sounds like a fire waiting to happen
The Tiger Jet is the only pulse jet engine I have experience with.
I have seen valveless pulse jet engines. Never seen one run though.
The little twin jet is cool. But, that is a tubine, not a pulse jet.

i have seen these pulse jets fly (planks)and its enough to make your ears bleed.
Fun for the first 3 minutes then you can't stand the noise.
