Well done all.

In reply #558 above. There is something that looks like a wooden batwing with jet propulsion.


Does anyone know anything more about it, or know any youtube links?

Yep it's a pulse jet attached incorrectly to a round the pole part built hull.
Its I correctly attached due to there not being enough thermal insulation between the hull and metal attachment.if this run I think it might burn through the upright wood and take off on its own accord!

Tiger try www.onthewire.co.uk  home of tethered racing hydros in UK but I think pulse jets may be banned, very noisy and for experts only I`d think.  Delta R/C model aircraft do over 200/250 mph with one fitted :o

Just to add my thanks to the Wicksteed park club for another excellent event - one of the best I think this year. At one point on Saturday there must have been 20 boats out at the same time, and a huge variety - from the Victorian warships to some superb sailing boats.


Thank you Martin for more great photos!


Really good to catch up with everyone & meet some new boaters, looking forward to the next one!

The only thing on earth as loud and as uncontrollable as a pulse jet is the Republican presidential nominee...... O0 Once you've heard one you never forget it! :o

It produces roughly the same amount of hot gas as well!!!!

There is a mad bloke on Youtube called Colin Furze that does a lot with Pulse jets. His 'Jettle' is quite amusing.
