so
you all might have heard my first cheap jet was kind of a bust
so I got another cheap jet (jj-1400)
she came in a nice case
and according the ecu she had run around 2.5/3 hours
biggest bad this the ecu was dead
it took a bit but I got it fixed

after that she didnt want to start correctly
what was the problem
blocked fuel needles
unblocked them the best I could
and now she runs!!!!




so now the question is
what to do with it

I am currently thinking bicycle
because it only has 6kg of trust

I haven't kept up with this but I'm impressed. Anybody that can imagine and construct a small real jet engine has my respect.

Robot,
How about a 1/8th scale hydro boat? At least it would be near water in case something negatively significant happens

Hi Peter, could this jet assist the Wankel engine in your Fiat 600 to obtain higher speeds?

I can see it now --------
The Batmobile #2

Turbine for speed --- power to stern ----- flames shooting out the back of the car and the roaring of the turbine engine!

And out of the Bat Cave pops out the little Batmobile #2 goes!

Anyone remembers the words that Batman and Robin say as they start-up the Batmobile may remember it?

As a young boy I thought that was the coolest thing to see --- Batman and Robin jetting out of the Bat Cave!
I still have an old Revel plastic kit (built) of the Batmobile with Batman and Robin.

It is from the Batman TV series that was shown in the 60's.

robot797 --- your way too young to ever have seen the TV series, but you can watch them on YouTube?

I didn't quote get the wording correct but here is the clip from the show of Batman and Robin in the Batmobile.

For a pre-teen, the bat cave was amazing!
It had a nuclear power plant, computers, a bat-cycle, bat-helicopter, bat-boat, a bat-mobile that was driven by a jet engine.
Things you would have never seen in the 60's like you would see almost every day today.

Especially a jet car or a big semi rig with a jet engine going down a drag strip?

I have a fair collection of Batman items that I still have over 60 years ago.
The one I remember well and flew it a lot is my Bat-kite.
It's the old-style diamond shape kite with the tail and printed on the clear plastic of the kite is the design of the "Bat-signal."
I was the envy of the kids in the neighborhood with my kite.

I was 12 going 13 years old when I saw Batman with Adam West and his side kick Robin (can't remember actor's name). Even then at my younger age it was corny. It was weird watching them both scaling up a wall that you knew was a prop laying horizontally with camera flipped 90 degrees. They were fake walking. Doh!

Yup, past history but they sold a lot is toys, figurines, dolls, kites, gliders, costumes, masks, remained popular for a long time. They got little girls involved with Batwoman (short lived).

It was just another part of history.

Startrek may be a touch cheesy, but it was fun to watch. William Shatner added a touch of class along with the other regulars, Spock, Ursula, Bones, Scotty.

Watching the USS Enterprise scale model zipping past the screen preceding CGI using the filming techniques of the day was fun to watch.

Again, it was a fun part of history. Stereo

Check this out!!.  Cheezy it may be, but what an amazing machine.. Mind you, I doubt that the climate change people will approve.  All that gas and fog and smoke etc.
