Welcome, Danny. the illustration is quite good. The idea's problem in my mind is that I've not seen a Reynst combustor (read: single hole breather) make a usable amount of thrust. It's kind of a holy grail, I'm thinkin'. Eric's done some pj driven ramjets, though, but getting one in the centerbody would be a neat trick!

Just my .02 worth of local currency: Just because it has not been done, does not mean it can not be done.

In the process of moving, from the glorified phone booth we had to the house we have.

No real time to work on jets, more space, no time.

Life still complicated.
