From Open Source Ecology
Jump to: navigation, search


- An aircraft grade ramjet

- Essentially a pipe with a combustion chamber + a specially designed air intake that uses the ram air effect for air compression

- Easy to build, yet fuel inefficient

- Is good for very high transonic to supersonic speeds though

Used For

- Open Source Aircraft Construction Set

Industry Standards

Minimum Viable Product

- Modular

- Scaleable

- As light as possible

- Operation Range from Mach 0.8 - Mach 6 (This is scaleable to each engines needs as well; not every engine will have this range)
