Backyard Inventor Adds A Propeller To His Giant 360° Swing
Professional backyard engineer Colin Furze adds a propeller and motor from a powered paraglider to his 31 foot spinning 360 swing.
Surely the neighbors must be thrilled!
Colin says: "Yes of course I had to power this in some way and I know the first suggestion is a pulse jet,
but my neighbourly relations are being tested enough with just the sight of this thing, so then shaking their house's with the raw of a jet seemed a step to far.
So I've settled for the calming noise of a 2-stroke paramotor.
Now not sure how much faster this looks but I can tell you it felt a lot faster, so much so that holding on was less about falling down to the ground but being thrown to the sky.
The concentration needed to move finger to shut of engine was even a task.
With paramotor being around the right counterweight, even the engine at tick over made the swing speed up, so all this put together it just made me feel SICK hahaha.......but was a good bad idea."
