Obviously another heated fuel tank approach that probably amounts to a pressure jet.

For readers not familiar with the term: ATHODYD = AeroTHermODYnamic Duct. The term was normally applied only to true ramjets.

L.C.,

It cannot go fast enough to act like a true ramjet (I said that in your other post) and that is why I said here, "for a model aircraft".

Ahhh, but the term, "ATHODYD", is a term the russian pulse jet enthusiasts liked to call their valved pulsejet creations, also. So, we'll just use it here in the broadest sense of the word.
