This "bloke" has been on Outrageous Acts of Science (Science Channel) twice. The first time was for his moped bowl and the second was the pulse jet powered bicycle. He makes some first rate stuff (if you are still a 12 year old inside.)

Maybe he makes some first-rate stuff but this is not. For that I would try Jimmy DeResta

Beyond the build quality though, he's literally playing with fire.

If you look at his other videos you'll see that he suffered some pretty severe burns from this contraption. Still awesome though! Haha

Ah, I had not mentioned Colin Furze as much as I thought I had, just http://ecomodder.com/forum/showthrea...tml#post447045 and http://ecomodder.com/forum/showthrea...tml#post455210.

He reminds me of an old friend, a crazy redhead that is always working on projects, but my friend has not been good at maintaining contact. I would have appreciated help with many of my projects and I often offered to assist with his.

Playing with fire? He once burned the skin off of one of his arms, but his flamethrowers were cool. I am not sure if this was the specific comment, but someone pointed out that not only does he use a drill, a grinder, and duck or duct tape, but a toilet paper holder, a brush holder, and a turbo.

That turbo was crucial.

I will check out Jimmy. Thanks.

He's lucky he didn't burn the whole place down.
