    Somebody forgot to glue on the tail!

    A couple of spools of baling wire and some Bondo will fix that thing right up!

    Ouch! ... I feel sorry for the guy at 2:00 that takes his hands to his head and walks away in utter defeat and disappointment... I'm sure he must've put a lot of time (and money) into that beauty....

    Duct tape. Is all you need.

    If it moves and is not supposed to put duct tape on it. It it doesn't move and it is supposed to put wd40 on it.

    Nice video... but it doesn't clarify what it means by "axial flow" ... how is it mechanically different from other engines?

    I thought he would have bolted it down, but it looks like his table was going to blow away at 1:35

    Yeah, although the thing is mounted on a nice solid aluminum plate, the entire table shook when he accelerated the thing!
