Help! photos, diagrams, etc required for HimmelstÃ¼rmer Answered
hello, I need some diagrams or sketches or photos of the german Himmelstürmer.
If you have scale or measurements, that would be even better.
one sounds like a simple enough device, and I would like to make it as a fun project. and post it up as an ible.
all I know is that it consisted of two pulse jets and fuel tank(s).
one small jet pointed down and was attached to the front of the user, the other larger one pointed at a downwards angle. fuel was stored on the front of the person.
the engines did not run long enough to heat up, so there is no heat protection.
it was used by throttling the engines, which would push the wearer into the air and forwards, allowing jumps of 60 meters distance and up to 50 feet height.
I just need details of the, well, the entire device. the attached picture is just an artist impression of the device.
I have no idea how to mount it to the user in a non-permanent way, and I need dimensions and such to allow it to be safe. I really don't want to make a device for an ible that could blow up the user.
