WOW! Once they got that engine going,that dirty little bird went ZOOM!  What a cunning way to get the air moving through a pulse jet.  Your MK 1 German is a clever fellow.

Byron said...

Damn! That sucker was fast! Wonder if they could put about six of those little jets under a NASCAR sled :)  It'd sure get you to the checker in a hurry...

Did anyone notice that the RC aircraft had enough smash on it to do three turns to bleed off before landing? And that it almost wasn't enough? Sweet...

Germans after all started the jet business back in th WW2... and the He-162 could be a fine fighter if not for the end of war. AFAIK it was more agile than Me-262 and as fast.

UltimaRatioRegis said...

So the Germans had itty bitty pilots?  Wow.  IINM, the HE-162 was constructed of plywood, balsa, and epoxy due to the shortage of strategic materials.

Why we want to keep Germans busy making cool car engines.  Next thing you know they'll be teaching it to take pictures and drop ordinance.

ewok40k said...

yes, but dont scoff wooden aircraft - ever heard of DH Mosquito?

UltimaRatioRegis said...

Not scoffing a bit.  De Havilland is exactly where E. Heinkel's folks got the ideas of how to build wood laminate aircraft!

AW1 Tim said...

Yes indeed. Do to the clever use of alternate materials, plus relocating manufacturing facilities, German aircraft production actually increased during the war. The limiting factor was the Allied startegic bombing of refineries and fuel depots and railroad marshaling yards.

Even then, German synthetic oil production kept up for most of the demand until the very end.

I have to admit being surpised that Germany hasn't rebuilt and maintained their synthetic oil production capabilities, what with the ability of Russia to blackmail Europe through with holding of petroleum products, natural gas, etc.

More like a V-1 than an  H 262. V-1 was a pulse jet, 262 was a conventional (rotary) jet.

Outlaw Mike said...

I believe that in the last few weeks of the war perhaps a squadron was operational with JG1 (Jagd Geschwader) in Leck, Schleswig-Holstein, that there were even some skirmishes with RAF fighters, but that no allied plane was shot down because of Salamander guns (there may have been one damaged though).

Truly outstanding.

Captain.Joe,

That's true, the He162 did use a turbine, but c'mon! It's an RC PULSE JET!!! How cool is that?

About 12 years ago, I had the pleasure of going to the OLF at Whidbey for an all-turbine RC fly-in. There were probably two dozen turbines. It was the most amazing flying demonstration I'd seen.

But no pulse jets.

if you see the guy with the controls sitting somewyere with a strange look on his face, humor him. his life is over, he has acheieved the supreme goal. he built an rc model of his dream plane, it flew and he managed to land it without damage. he is full filled, he will be content to sit there until he dies or until the ball and chain drags him off to fill the rest of his life with honeydews.

possibly the only utterance he will ever make henceforth and forever more will be the question: it flew, did you see it it flew?

Synthetic oil is obtained by coal liquefaction which is an energy cosuming process. After WWII, oil was just to cheap for it to pay off. AFAIK reasearch on the topic went on in Germany until the 80's, but it did not achieve a game change.

According to German wikipedia Germany-style coal liquefaction (Fischer-Tropsch) is commercially successful in South-Africa, where it covers almost a third a fuel demand, because coal is still abundant and workforce is cheap.

Actually English and German wikipages are quite good, although with a different focus:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Coal_liquefaction
http://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kohleverfl%C3%BCssigung

Friend of mine had a Chemistry teacher who worked as trouble-shooting engineer at those Fischer-Tropsch plants during the war. He always used to smoke while on those plants, because "as long as the cigarette tasted good, there was nothing bad in the air".

SCOTTtheBADGER said...

All of the plywood that went into the DH Mosquito came from right here in Northern Juneau, and Southern Wood Counties in Wisconsin.  A company in Marshfield made the olny plywood that had the strength to hold up under the stresses involved.

SCOTTtheBADGER said...

You would sure think it would be in thier own self interest, wouldn't you?

Casey Tompkins said...

Actually, Tim, Germany got most of their oil from Rumania. Once the Soviets moved in, their reserves tanked. Excuse the pun.

There was enormous synthetic oil factory just north of my home city Szczecin/Stettin. In 1944 it was levelled by 8th AF. Ruins are there to this day, maybe someday I'll post some photos...
And Ploesti was down to 10% output when Soviets moved in - they ofcourse claimed it was intended to hinder THEM.

hajo-hi said...

Teaching them how to take pictures is already done. Well, not exactly the RAM-jet but several other models:

Its a He 162 not a Me 262 though indeed in reality it did use a turbine. Pulse jets were considered for the 162 though as an alternative.

Just think, if they were members of the USAF, they would have all received Distinguished Flying Cross...including the guy holding the camera and guy who drove the pick-up truck to and from the park that morning!
