For those who are trying to work out what these small unassuming cylinders are, i will give you a hint. They will increase my turbine power output buy at least 30%.
If you guessed they are pressurised rotisserie cookers you maybe close. But then if you guessed they are afterburners you guessed right the first time but will not be enjoying any kind of pressurised culinary delicacies.
What these babies do is mount to the rear of my engines and help to re-burn any un-burnt fuel and oxygen by injecting a large volume of jet fuel into them in a very small amount of time. this then ignites, and the by product is a massive power boost. To give you an idea of what kind of power i will be working with, lets say your average power output for you family car is about 140 horse power (this is being generous). what the afterburners will do in combination with the engines at full power will create roughly about 400 horsepower. now with a board weighing less than your average 3 year old toddler and a pilot weighing in at around the 85kg range. combine this with two 12 foot flames out the back of the board and you are looking at a whole bunch of excitement. Oh! i forgot to mention. While all this is going on i will also have my head resting on about 15 litres of A1 jet fuel. as there is no other place on the board to store that amount of fuel. This will provide me with about 2 to 3 mins of run time. not he best choice of efficient transportation i must say.
i will leave it here but make sure you keep checking in as things get closer to actually mounting and running both the turbine engines. Also please remember to like and share my blog with others. thank you for reading.
