Although not Cox related, this is cool stuff. I got to witness this build through this winter and got to see it fly this past April. Dan is the builder and fellow club member of mine and close neighbor. Dan has inspired many wide eyed onlookers with his giant 84" wingspanned Flite Streak and 6' wingspanned Bi-Slob. This in my opinion is really cool. We had our annual stunt contest this past Sunday. Dan recently returning from flying at the Nats.

Dan was able to hook up with the jet speed flyers who helped him get the jet a bit more duration. The current fuel which seems to be working the best is 87 octane pump gas. The jet uses 19 oz's of fuel to fly the pattern. The pattern hasn't entirely been able to be completed due to the major CG shift when the fuel burns off. The tank is mounted just a few inches behind the nose. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mAcLaot_Xic

The plane is named "Stuntus Loudus" and has Wile E. Coyote at the Helm. Getting a pulse jet to work in level flight is a task in itself and Dan has done something that really hasn't been tried in over 30 years. And for those that never heard a pulse jet, IT"S LOUD. here is this past weeks performance at the Nats. https://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_detailpage&v=yQT0bNM-2Wg Ken
