    Very nice. Did that proppeller had any purpose? It seems to small to be really effective.

    That was the special "uber-propeller" derivative. The rocket thrust was actually diverted to the prop so the spinning could provide enough lift. The result was ridiculously high prop speed.

    Had the prop been bigger, it would have been ripped to shreds.

    Leave it to German thinking to engineer something so creative.

    Very nice Clave!

    Comiso!!! That's not how we teach the young padawons. :lol: Now find that planet you will.

    Ardeken, the prop is a used as a means of generating electricity for the aircraft electronics and electrical system, since the very crude rocket on the Me163 system did not have a mechanical conversion of thrust for the same.

    Comiso... I'm ashamed of you. Funny. But ashamed. :sad3:

    We should not discourage questions or our website will not be populated with a next generation of those interested. Now, back to Alizee. Ahhhhh....

    Thank you kindly, and if I'm not around much it's because I'm working on my site - I realise now that I set myself an epic rebuilding task, and it's consuming my time in huge bucketloads... :shock:
