The winter here in Europe is comming,
That means Ice
I've worked on a RC sled with an electric ducted fan motor and one rocket engine.
just tested it without the rocket on my room floor, and I can achieve 30mp/h, what would that be on the ice
yesterday I tested the ignition system, it uses Weco C6-3 engine that I found somewhere in my room.
but for the first time in my life this first motor Cato's .
it give some nice shots, and pictures. But I had to repair the damage, and one camera died from the explosion.
the second test went well, I've recorded an thrust to weight ratio of 3 to 1 , that would be fast !
I cant wait to test this on real ice
here an video of the static test, first the cato issue, second part of the video shows the final result.
