    Since the acrylic is the fuel, the longer you run the motor, the thinner the acrylic gets. I was hoping he would run the motor until it explodes from the pressure.

    Why does he call it an engine/motor? it`s a torch. It has to do mechanical work to be a motor.

    @paperduck
    It is generating thrust therefore it can be considered an engine/motor. The fact that the thrust is not doing mechanical work doesn`t somehow make it not an engine.

    Hybrid rockets are amazing. So simple but they allow so many different fuels to be used.
