Here is the first (albeit short) flight of my pulsejet-powered Long-EZ. Unfortunately a faulty connection to the fuel filter caused air bubbles in the fuel-line which meant the engine quit prematurely but it shows that this engine produces more than enough power to push one of these ARFs through the air quite nicely.
It also shows that starting is quite straight forward and reliable.
After the engine cut, opted not to do a 180 degree turn because I didn't know how well it glided. As it turns out, it glides damned well and I could have easily made the turn. Fortunately we have a *very* long runway.
A new fuel-filter is on its way and (weather allowing) another (longer) video will be posted when it arrives.
