Well the title kinda speaks for itself. I wish the results were more impressive, but at least the video has fire in it. Enjoy : )
Too much fuel…..thats obvious
Too much mechanical friction. The re-worked compressor lost a blade which fouled the mechanism. A new re-re-worked compressor will be constructed. Also, attempts to reduce friction and weight of the turbine shaft and fans will be re-thunked. Yes, I’m inventing new words….I’m aware.
And Conversely….the good:
All of the materials used are actually withstanding these temperatures well.
We have a better starting proceedure
The fuel system (so far) seems quite adequate.
More to come when refinements are accomplished…..
