Ramjet

Ramjet
An idea for someone who know how to mod.
An inefeecient jet engine for drones too small for having fuel engine or battery on it.consumes fuel directly. Suggested stats:

thrust: 2000 4xhigher than jet
Mass: 0.8t
cost: about 80
fuel consumption:3/s about 7.5x higher then jet
it could look like normal jet.

RE: Ramjet
A ramjet would be more for already large craft, since ramjets need speed to function. Perhaps a rocket engine instead?

RE: Ramjet
Also, IIRC Ramjets have a minimum speed before they begin to function. Might be thinking of a scramjet though,

Ahh FTD. 500 hours and I still can't beat most of it. Bless ya.

RE: Ramjet
Is there no way to make to make a mono rotor drone with LUA boxes and 2 axis turret ?
Would keep energy consumption at a minimum while being a good air surveillance system.

RE: Ramjet
Rams do have a minimum speed, since they're basically jets with the turbines ripped out. It uses speed to compress its air. Scrams are an extreme high speed variant of rams, they don't slow the air to subsonic inside therefore the name: 'Supersonic Combusting RAMJET.'
A chemical rocket would be a good high thrust, low-efficiency thruster. They would have the plus of working in space! And with better efficiency.
Then with reactors we could get nuclear thermal rockets for spacecraft... they use a reactor instead of combustion to heat up their propellant, giving them much higher efficiencies.
