Have you heard the BUZZ? Pulse jets are the Bees-Knees.
Pulse Jets are not new, they were around before the turn of the century. They were made famous however when the Germans used them to power the V-1 flying bomb. These were dubbed the “buzz bomb” due to the distinctive sound made from the pulse cycle of the shutters and combustion at such a high rate.
Jumping forward a few years, due to their simple design they made their way into the early days of modeling. Pulse jets were used by the hardcore modeler breaking records and they strapped them to anything that moved! Anyone that has ever seen or heard one run in person will never forget it.
The HobbyKing Red Head Pulse Jet is a retro flash back to the days of modeling where nearly everything was an experiment and the possibilities were endless. Anyone that has ever seen the old pulse jets have instantly had ideas (some smart, some not so smart) of strapping one to something or another. Now is your opportunity!
The Red Head Hobbyking valve pulse jet is classic in design and yet modern in quality. It runs on just plain old gasoline (no oil needed), starts with a bicycle pump and comes with just about everything needed to fire it up including the ignition system to the mounting hardware, spare parts and reeds.
Hobbyking’s Red Head Pulse Jet Engine is perfect for anyone looking to feel nostalgic and strap it to a model, place it on their mantel, or take into the garage and upset their neighbors.
