i know it's been ages since i posted an update. The simple answer as to why, life, life sometimes gets in the way. those of you following this know i am by no means a rich man, so from time to time i have to focus on living rather than the jet luge so i can survive. i know most people can understand and those of you reading this i thank you for your support.
The good news is i have been busy working on the turbines in the little spare time i have had. we have completely rebuilt one and we are set to do the other in the next week or two. the other thing we did was built a test stand that will give us live data as to what the turbines are doing. from this data we can fine tune the engines and get them working more in sync with each other. this will help keep me on a straight path when under power. the test stand gives us RPM, temperature, turbine pressure and most importantly thrust. we can also fine tune the afterburners on each turbine. there is still plenty of work to be done but with the creation of this stand we step closer and close to a more reliable and safe set of turbines. if the picture isn't enough for you and you'd like to see more about the turbine and stand you can watch the video for a runthrough of how it all works.
