    The resin printer is the Elegoo Mars 2 Pro and I was using the standard Elegoo clear resin. I was tempted to build a custom UV curing station, but ended up ordering the Elegoo Mercury Plus 2 in 1, which I definitely recommend as it makes the post processing far easier. As mentioned in the video, none of this was sponsored/provided by Elegoo, I just saw it all on Amazon Prime and thought I'd give it a go.

      I do so enjoy observing the engineers mind at work. inspiration for not only my own works, but for the next gen of makers and such, please continue the good works and the having a much fun doing it!

    2. Filthy Lucre

      What I see in this gentleman's videos is the clear and present difference between _making_ and _engineering._

    3. Ojas Maywade

      This was really awesome, can you please tell how to have such great engineering concept and build such cool thing. you can also make a detail video about it.

    4. DSLRguide

      dude you are so good at explaining things

    5. 6 6

      The upbeat detail weekly reflect because mile fourthly talk behind a belligerent fibre. colossal, astonishing offence

    6. daddy destroyer

      I've recently been seeing a lot of stuff on air multipliers, and although I haven't done too much research, and have no idea on efficiency and such, but it'd be interesting to see your take on them

    7. Velvet The fox

      You should enclose the air peice with the entrance from bottle amd exhaust on the chassis offset by a small ammount to increase power transfer

    8. David Wilkie

      Excellent demonstrations

    9. Nooz Zoo

      Create a servo-controlled aperture for the nozzle, and you can attenuate air flow.

      Can you show us how to make a turbine engine here is a link for your help: www.instructables.com/Homemade-Tin-Can-Turbine-With-3d-printed-Compresso/ (Please show step by step how to make it love from Pakistan)

    12. Tiitan Rutse

      use air to make electrify put one those DVD burner motors aren't they three phase . use it as a generator

    13. Schweet119

      So could you make the turbine a little more efficient by turning the blades 90 degrees, that way centrifugal force is working in your favor too?

    14. OnePalProductions

      Is this what powers the LEDs in my rainfall shower?

    15. Martin Kuthan

      The last option is great, but it occurs to me that the performance at higher speeds will be proportional to the outflow of air. Could a Tesla or steam turbine be used for the same purpose?

    16. The Other Side

      *What else is needed for you to generate electricity with this?*

    17. Liam Hill

      Mr. Stanton... Do you airplain sir?

      defasts.info/title/video/krGTgZu9pnjMkpY.html check out this video to see what i mean for the "venturi pump" turns out there is already name for this in the aviation industry "aviation aspirator" 4:26m in video, or TLA "tank liquid agitator" its the same principle. who ever in your setup i assume some sort of valve will be required due to the small amount of air available. (my idea is to use this to lower the comsumption of the system, but i guess it could be used to add power instead). up to you to chouse the best aplication.

      I like how he just slapped integza with a bottle

    27. Matthias May

      Place the nozzles on the tips of the rotor blades. Some early helicopters had this design. It had done trouble with hit gases. Since you use cold compressed air there should nothing to be worried of. Placing nozzles on tip of the rotor will drive the rotor and save the weight of the turbine and gear.

      I'm a little lost here beforehand it was about a jet powered bicycle and now it's now you end it with this why is DEfasts screwing with me today

    30. Alexander Kosolapov

      Try to split the incoming stream in two halves and turn them towards each other so they will cancel each other's energy.

    31. Alexander Kosolapov

      Try to curve the bucket in way that the water (or air) gets redirected back to the incoming stream.

    32. Camille Cirrus

      My favourite part is where he bats integza off the screen with a bottle.

    33. Shun Ryuenji Matoi

      Enclosing the turbine might improve efficiency a bit as its less drag from the sorrounding air. The real question here is how is the exhaust gonna be made.

    34. Hassi Massoud

      Why you slap it.....

    37. jack allread

      Thanks Tom, as always, well done and very informative!

    38. Mr.McGoover

      If the air powered Helicopter has energy that is too short lived, you could always build a lightweight steam boiler and use two air turbines to make a vertical take off osprey airplane.

    39. Tatskaari

      I guess the nozzle on its own ejects high pressure air that spreads out evenly distributing it's momentum partially in the horizontal direction. This is the same reason rockets optimised for sea level are less efficient in a vacuum. If you had a bell on it to bring the exhaust down to 1 atmosphere it would be more efficient but I imagine that's quite hard to get right.

    40. Flare

      is anyone gonna mention the linear flow at 5:15 ?

    41. Guy Fallon

      Tom ur a wild man ! thx

    42. Lukas Zieba

      Super cool dude. Keep it up.

    43. Terje Svendsen

      What happens if you make a enclosure for the turbine?

    44. JBEEUD

      So the final version is very close to a standard impulse turbine that is commonly used in steam applications. Here's a tip. Make two more of those exact same wheels and stack them up with the first in alternating directions. Connect the first and third wheel to your shaft and hold the second (opposite direction wheel) rigid to your frame. Make sure the blades of the first and third wheel are aligned and there you go.

    45. Théorie de la Gravité

      Hello Tom did you try with vacuum? How to made it? Surprise me...

    46. Kofichi

      I think the reason the propeller is more efficient is because the airflow is only utilizing the conservation of momentum (mv). Whilst the propeller is utilizing the kinetic energy (1/2mv^2)

    47. joe cool

      i love this sort of stuff, always been thinking about stuff like a hydrofoil piston etc etc blah blah .. i won't bore you with a details and can't find the only one on youtube someone made in a jungle in thialand somewhere .. you strap it to a rivers bridge and it pumps up and down ... basic stuff

      I really want to see how the turbine powered aircraft competes with the piston powered aircraft. The diaphragm one was very promising!

      Make a glider that you could launch with your trebuchets!

    55. EddyCovers

      It would be nice if you used grams instead of newtons, it's easier to picture the weight

    56. worstthinker27

      Just looking at the thrust equations: for a turbine driven propeller its thrust equation is proportional to V^2 while for the nozzle its thrust equation is proportional to just V. Turbine Driven Propeller Wins. Also in order to get more juice out of that nozzle, you would need to create the right pressure ratios, converging/diverging nozzle, etc. to expand the flow isentropically as close to the back pressure as possible for max nozzle efficiency.

    57. MrPashee

      Are you sure it is a good idea to place you UV 3d printer near the window in a daytime? :)

    58. AMV12S

      What about a hybrid? the air turbine plugged to a generator to charge a battery that runs a motor with the propeller 🤔

    59. Steve Lacy

      I wonder if using a denser gas like CO2 or N2 or Argon would help? All are fairly easily attainable at a Welding supply store. Might be a good power/weight ratio test. In fact, I wonder if putting a few grams of dry ice (solid CO2) into the canister would work out well on that front. Certainly give you more than the 30s of runtime at a fairly reasonable weight penalty.

    60. Skillful Man

      nice work , love your data analysis

    61. Wayne Page

      Interesting, it would be interesting to hook this up to a large pressure plenum and modulate the pressure as the form of velocity control. There might be some good reasons behind pressurizing the bottle to a max pressure and using a small pressure regulator to keep the max thrust a little bit lower and prolong the time of flight.

      1. Ask to seduce Miss

        This vid is the history of steam engines from piston to steam turbine. I expect the conclusion is a 16mm multi-stage blade set with reversing blades between them?

    62. Blood Sweat And Tears Forever learning

      Incorporate a pelt wheel into a turbo, the bigger the better because the air has more time to travel through my system

      1. Blood Sweat And Tears Forever learning

        @Ask to seduce Miss ya that's amazing, I invent stuff all the time just to find out it's already been made aha it feels like I'm getting visions from the past

      2. Ask to seduce Miss

        Wouldnt a francis wheel be the best for this? Efficient and the exhaust can be faced down to add to verticle thrust.

    63. Steven Ingram

      This was an interesting build. And the ribbing that you and Integza are doing towards each other is really cracking me up. LOL

    64. A Milky Way Laniakea Superclusterite

      Mechanical advantage?

    65. Skyler Roper

      Thank you for the videos. I think I learn more from your videos than in my high school physics class... I'm not sure what to think now that I have said that.

    66. GrenadeGod

      Dude, you might be the one youtuber that people watch till the end. Man keep up the good work. Love your vids ❤️

    67. Aaron Cunningham

      Great video, really interesting, but why did you say math? You’re not American and mathematics is plural.

    68. Marcos Berghahn

      It will be awesome if you connect this to a energy generator, to see how much watts you can generate.

    69. L. D.

      Make the turbine so that it is integrated into the nozzle-cap so that 0 air can escape , and all is utilized in the system.

    70. George Kowalski

      Hmm 92 percent with these Damm buckets defasts.info/title/video/dMOvn7CYh6K2uN0.html


      integza stop

    72. jrae

      Could you add a duct to the nozzle to create a ram like air multiplying effect?

    73. treborsnave76

      An idea - a constant stream of air might result in some dissipation of energy as the bucket passes through. Would the concept of a timed burst of air that's synchronised to the rotational speed (think WW1 fighters with timing chains shooting through the props) allow a greater efficiency?

    74. GAME STAR

      Please make a electric motor with bell electromagnets

    75. Douglas Carvalho

      The reason why the turbine is more efficient is because the 2nd and 3rd Laws of Newton. Less air mass is displaced with the nozzle only configuration, hence less force is applied and less reaction happens to the opposite direction. That's my guess.

    76. Beach&BoardFan

      Wouldnt a francis wheel be the best for this? Efficient and the exhaust can be faced down to add to verticle thrust.

    78. Roberto Tarter

      Soooo, you reinvented the impulse turbine I get!?

    79. Leoschnardo

      @Tom Stanton check out the aerodynamics of your newest model printed. It could have some trouble there

    80. KingCosworth

      Maximum efficiency of these turbines is when the turbines edge velocity is 1/2 of the jet stream velocity.

    81. hen ko

      Keep stroking the algorithms folks - by commenting. Wonderful content, from an old fellow Brit :)

    82. Dice Blue

      what about a turbine where each "blade" or "bucket" splits the airflow into two paths but the 3dprinted cross section of the blade includes a section from a tesla valve, so you take some of the incoming air and redirect it around to create a high pressure obstruction, which also pushes back pressure in the second chamber and pulls more energy out of the air slow? the problem is the time each blade is in contact with the stream is minimal, and then you have to deal with the effects it has on the rest of its journey around.. hrm

    83. Scott Griswold

      So can we call your air optimized version the "Micro Stanton Turbine"?

    84. OmNi J

      I normally watch stuff about video games and anime how tf is this in my recomended. I mean it was pretty frickin cool tho

      1. hen ko

        Would a 90° cog ruin the efficiency? If not, you could try aiming the jet downwards and still power the propeller...

    85. Dice Blue


    86. John Gamer

      Have you investigated the design of centrifugal superchargers or turbo driven superchargers which are used to turn rotational energy into pressure and may be able to be reversed

    87. Dice Blue

      4:50 this video is amazing

    88. Dice Blue

      2:22 hnnnnnnnnnnnng

    89. Dice Blue

      do a dry ice engine, for a bike, craft or animatronic ED-209

    90. Rnk

      Prop moves more air than the nozzle, basic physics

    91. Vraj Bhavsar

      Im pretty dumb, but maybe the turbine is bigger so its hitting more air particles, and causing more air particles to push back (newton’s third law). So im guessing surface area?

    92. Richard Foulkes

      Hi, great video. an idea that popped into my head is to try two nozzles, above and below. not sure if the added weight will be worth it. Cheers!!

    93. ThaJay

      It would be really cool to see you try a bladeless fan design! Because you're starting with compressed air, there would be no moving parts.

    94. Ethan Morgan

      I feel like it will end up looking like a turbo, for pressure efficiency it just needs to be fully enclosed

    95. Ryan Smith

      @TomScott really looks and sounds different in his newer videos huh?

    96. Chad Clancy

      Can you share the CAD files for the Pelton turbine? That thing is really cool and I'd like to try some things with it myself.

    97. Panther Platform

      Let's play _Catch the Plane_

    98. Billy Hudson

      The reason the turbine is more efficient is impedance matching ;)

    99. Dåligt Förklarat

      Would a 90° cog ruin the efficiency? If not, you could try aiming the jet downwards and still power the propeller...

    100. Francisco Cigarro

      Doesn't the air expand almost immediately after being thrown out the nozzle? The turbine utilises that momentum immediately, negating the decompression.
