Has two 150 pounds thrust pulsejets on it, once the augmentors are on each engine will be putting out 250 pounds of thrust.

Yes there are a couple of full scale helis around that use pulse jets on the end of the rotors to spin them.

Hi Daz
very cool have you any video of it running

Cheers Michael

The helmet is a good point, with all the excitement and no one around with one you know how it is.... helmets will be used in the next runs.

That picture was a frame out of a video Bruce took, he may post that video on his site soon http://www.aardvark.co.nz/pjet/

Yeah, great idea, seeing how the frame is made from seamed square tubing! The "roll cage" is pretty funny too. Can you say" with burns over 90% of his body" ? Looks like great fun.

At least the US healthcare system won't be burdened when that frame gives way.

Sorry but what you're doing is a selfish act of stupidity. That thing doesn't look even remotely safe. Don't you have anyone in your life that thinks or cares about you?

Yep looks dangerous !! I must admit that I could be convinced into trying it as well..

The frame is skechy and no helmut may be a poor choice but we all take risks ...some more than others. Keep in mind that we are flying heli toys that rely on simple plastic parts in many cases just to prevent a set of CF blades from sliting our bodies to pieces. We trust them to work...perhaps a heli helmet and protective suit may be wise too..hey maybe Foo's shield would come in handy too...

It's funny how some will see great danger in not wearing a helmet when the same person may hover a 90 size heli at head height 20 feet away...

us humans are a funny breed eh ..LOL

Never, under any circumstances, take a sleeping pill and a laxative on the same night.... Dennis

Hay Daz.

That looks like fun did you build it?

I am working on a turbo jet from a truck turbo it should make 150 to 200Lb of thrust.

please do be careful if having fun those pulse jets look very HOT and your fuel sorce is very close.

Have fun be safe.

Looks like fun Daz, a little dangerous maybe but then again, anything that's fun usually has some risk involved. It's not like you were flying a gas powered machete near spectators though. Some people are so short sighted. They enjoy this hobby then trash someone else for doing something that, even if he was risking only himself, he wasnt risking anyone else to have his fun. Way to be... :P

I must say there are a few old ladies on here, I don’t come on to be lectured about safety, all the welding on the cart has been done by a guy that owns a welding school, it has role bars so if it did role my head wouldn’t touch the ground.
Don’t a lot of you guys in the US ride motor bikes without helmets?

Ted Toth,>> I was only going about 50mph, had a problem with the brakes, they were dragging bad. With the augmentors on and no brake drag it should do well over 150mph and accelerate at over 1G.

DIVERIG>> No I didn’t build it although I watched it being built, Bruce Simpson and a friend of his built it (you may have seen him “Bruce” on junk yard wars with his pulsejet cart and also on the news with his cruise missile)

Yup, It's good to see Darwin was right after all." Hold my sign, I don't want to burn it" Jon, most race car people I know , would laugh also. Big difference in who designed our toy helicopters, and Goober's Custom Chassis.

Daz, that trick roll bar will only work, if the thing is standing still, and someone flips it over sideways. Unless it's 1/4" wall tubing, at 150mph, it's bending like an exhaust pipe, unless it's tied in front to back. A guy that owns a welding school, should leave the engineering to someone else. No lecture bud, I think it's very funny.
