Tuesday Torque: Look Ma, Not Crankshaft!

This noisy little critter doesn't have any reciprocating parts, so it produces no torque, only thrust.  It's amazing to watch as it goes 'round and 'round.  Note that there is  a pole in the center for the operator to hang onto.

Pretty much a model of the WW 2 German V-1, but not quite as noisy!

Pretty neat. I wonder how fast?

If those are 60 foot lines, a little over 70 mph. He did 10 rounds in 18 seconds; therabouts.
