Hi everybody.

Question, does your rocket have a pulsating sound? like when you drive with the window partialy open for example.

Thanks.

Max.

In my experience that's the sign the system is restricted. I can get mine to pulse by restricting the intake air when it's running hot. I just open it up a bit and it smooths right out.

Mat got it in one; sometimes its due to the fuel burning so hot that you cannot bring in enough air it smooths out pretty fast


Need more info?
