Did this video help you?

Soulrider2012: Were there ever any further videos made in this series? I can't find part 2. 

jcer93705: @4E047RHH I wouldn't think so because pulse jets are availble already since the late 70's? I cant remember when it was invented. This is not his invention. Back then pulse jets engine were used in u-control. I just got rid of my u-control pulse jet. But I can get it back :).

henry carless-turland: hey that is great u ever flown helicopters ?

xjet: @rolgarcia1 The mechanical gyros had a little electric motor that spun a flywheel and that flywheel was connected to a variable resistor that created the pulses to control the servo. They certainly weren't heading-hold and they did drift a *lot* but they were better than nothing.

Helol5: Deliver please!

xennelul: Can't wait!

xjet: @robdei1 Copper would not be the best option. It softens with heat and it is also too good a conductor of heat to make an easy-starting/running engine.

pparker768: Guarding the belt drive is a worthwhile investment.

alishanmao: Man, i so much wish I was there. you and I will work together to build a one seater Pulse Jet plane and I will test fly it :D can't wait for coming up vids. Pulse jets are getting my interest. Gotta learn a lot from ya

newtongfd: Part 2 ?

Sergio Pereira: Nice workshop you got there Bruce. Congrats

Maahin Beri: Is this the throttled pulsejet we heard about?

Bunea Alexandru: amazing

Antti Mäki: Is it possible to make a pulsejet using regular not-stainless steel? Do I really need a TIG welding machine? I have only a MIG.

MrToshTogo: Tremendous! I have looked forward to the actual building of your pulse jets and have wondered what tools were used in construction. I can see already building one is not just a simple job without the proper tools. I look forward to seeing the use of them in the construction as the project unfolds. Is a ceramic coating still part of the building?

EdsonYamamoto: waiting for part 2

madhazza023: when will vid 2 be up? really looking forward to it been waiting for about 3 months! =(

Ryan Connelly: @xjet any word on part 2?

RCllamadude: @xjet do you think i could make a pulse jet from threaded steel pipe and fittings? it would probably be too heavy to mount on a plane, but i was thinking of maybe putting it on a go cart. (wooden, normally gravity powered go cart)

Aviator747a: Looking forward to the next part/s of this. Been waiting for some time now. :0

xjet: @madhazza023 It'll be another 2-3 weeks. I'm just renovating the workshop and moving stuff around to make it much easier to do the videos.

zip187: @omfgimback A high wing plane as they are stable somthng like a multiplex fun cub just a suggestion lots out there tho :D

hothothotmale: Oh Brucey, I am an avid follower of your channels but gees your workshop/man central needs a little tidy up and organisation to present the image of a true professional you are. Great work. By the way will you have anything coming up on a full FPV set up with OSD for a quadcopter or anything remote control?

degimedia: Great!

barry king: bruce should i burn my dx6i with dsmx or stick with it ? i had a brown out and crashed my tricopter would you recomend tunigy 9x ?

John Murdoch: @xjet part 2 coming anytime soon?

pietzeekoe: An abandoned project?

BMSWEB: Good to see you don't need much in the way of sheetmetal and machining equipment lol

robdei1: Could you use a metal such as Copper to make a pulsejet? Or, is Copper too soft to make a pulsejet.

hellsrage619: HA

TheManFromAlaska: Very Cool. I made a pulse jet in my dads shop as a kid. It would be fun to build a more professional version now that I have a fully equipped shop. I would be interested in seeing the spinning lathe in operation as well. Also a part 2 to this video series would be stellar. Thanks -- TMFA

shidoink: thats a nice setup, sir. must have set you back a pretty penny!

xjet: @sbglobal You can but you have to be careful about providing plenty of ventilation. I use a ceramic coating on the inside of my engines which reduces the temperature on the outside but you still need plenty of air flowing over them to keep them cool.

xjet: Yes sir! Actually, my original welder blew up and I've just received the replacement so *yes* I will be picking up the baton and running with this very soon. Stay tuned!

xjet: @MrToshTogo Yes, I'll be using ceramic.

CrackerMcGillicuddy: Bruce, you sure are a busy guy. I can't wait to hear about your home made FPV ideas on your other channel 'cause I'm a cheapskate. How come it says "2 views" and there's 6 comments? Something screwy with You Tube.

Rick Shane: Awesome workshop! Just amazing!

xjet: @henryismaster I used to fly helis back in "the olden days" when we had mechanical gyros :-)

FlyingMerf: I loved your final statement, which is the point of it all, the bottom line, the answer to life, the universe and everything: flying the snot out of it! Keep up the great work, you are an inspiration to the rest of us.

RCllamadude: @xjet i want to build a pulsejet. i have two questions. one, would i be able to make a simple one out of threaded steel piping just to get the concepts down, and two, my mom does not want me to do it because she is afraid i will blow myself up, even if i have a remote starting button and i stand a looooooooooooooooong way away. can you help me show her otherwise?

YupHio: Awesome.

Rolando Rivera: @xjet holy crap i cant even imagine how a mechanical gyro would be, that is some stone age crap. maybe a rock rubbing on the tail rotor.... i cant picture a mechanical one.

Steve D: Awesome vid once again. Could you make a plane with the pulse jet is actually in the fuselage, kinda like a Sabre jet?

xjet: @jrmurd Yep, hoping to get it done before the end of the month. So much to do, so little time ;-)

somethinextra: Cant Wait Bruce...is Ron helping?

kbrflc: information, that's excellent bruce! greetz

tomsfarmfun: do you have any planes that you would give or sell to me

xjet: Well last time I threatened to tidy up, people objected. They like the cluttered backdrop apparently (not kidding!). However, you are correct and a friend is helping me put up my walls and create some structure out of the chaos very soon. I've been doing most of my FPV stuff on the RCModelReviews channel and there's a bunch more coming up soon.

James Balagtas: nice bruce

Aviator747a: When is the next part of this video series comming? With the swmac shut down for now and it being winter it would be nice to see some more on this. And the new pulsejet design. :)
