Nah it's a backwards engine. A normal jet engine on an air liner has the extra blades on the front and the air bypass the internals since very little of the air is actually used through the engine. This one is backwards eliminating the overall outside housing and making the pitch of the blades variable.

I wonder how safe those blades will be though in case one of them gets damaged.

Anyways see the large one at the front? Same deal.

I thought this was cool, and then I saw it was running a megasquirt.

No containment ring = don't sit in the back on that aircraft. Or use the rear lavatories.

turboprops don't have containment rings around their blades.

Is the jet portion of that engine a pure turbojet? or does it have any kind of fan up front?

Sure they do. See my pic at top of the page.

Oregonmon competed in the local 24 hour chump race this weekend in a turbo 924. His dad was lucky enough to be in the right place at the right time for their ultimate failure.



Not him driving. Failed DIY motor mounts cracked header and ripped off turbo oil line. Header/exhaust/boost ignited oil, filled cabin with smoke, and boiled brake fluid, all on the back straight. All ended well once fire extinguisher pulled and car skidded to a stop.

Not all jet engines use containment rings.

Most jet engine failures, at least these days, involve the big fan on the front of a high-bypass engine.

Of those, even the ones where a containment ring was present have sometimes led to hull-loss accidents with loss of life. United 232 comes immediately to mind.

On the plus side, the fan on this engine, while coaxial with the turbine shaft, is gear-reduced through what I assume to be a planetary. Thus, the blades are turning a speed which puts it somewhere between a conventional turboprop and a modern fanjet.

VZW is catching on. New Droid phone has TRUBO!

No joke. This was actually on the Verizon Wireless mobile site when I accessed earlier today.

Happy Halloween bitches!

I was thinking of making a Death Start build thread but figured I'd just show the final product.
