jet scooter
« on: December 20, 2016, 02:44:56 PM »
My son purchased a scooter at our local village jumble sale for 1.

On the front it has a sticker that says 'Warning: product moves when in operation.  Use common sense'



So I fitted a pulse jet to it.




I have been trialling it on propane but it is not behaving yet.  I may need to redesign the valve to let more air in.  Eventually the plan is that it will run on petrol.  Oh and my son is 7 so it will be for daddy to ride only, but he is enjoying the build :ddb:

Throw me for a loop. Saw the title and I thought "yes! a jet engine". Then I opened and saw the first picture... "darn, Jet must be a name brand". Then I got to the second picture. Rock On!!   :headbang: :headbang: :headbang:

Common sense is to put a jet engine on it. Right? I am not the only one who thinks that way. I know Doubleboost does too!

We need video of it going down the road.

I will post a video when I get it going properly.  So far all I have got out of it was a series of LOUD bangs which at 8:30 on a Saturday morning did not go down well with the wife!

Like the idea Andrew, but where will the fuel sit. Also probably need heat protection for your feet. Personally I prefer to sit in jets! :nrocks:
