Larry I keep forgetting to ask you about posters.... How big are they and where can I get one? I soon will have one of the engines full liquid carburated ready for control line plane/ rc car testing. I would imagine it could make for a wicked poster.

Nice web site. I loved the video's too.
I was wondering if anyone has made a valveless pulse jet that can compete with a valved one? In thrust that is...

Putting aside reliability for a moment, if I had to classify what's better I would first start with weight to thrust ratio and then fuel consumption.
When you said "There's virtually no valved design that can compete with the current range of valveless engines--when they're optimized "
Do you mean that given aprox. the same size and weight that a well tuned valveless engine will have greater thrust to weight ratio than a valved design?
Sorry I always thought that the valved engines out performed in this area.
Did I understand you correctly?
