Found this in FB. Very cool
Nice. is that the actual engine used...it does look like the engine fires a few times a second. could hear why it was called a "buzz bomb", but only after flyby.
was that actual size, and could they be released from a truck, in ww2?
seems like a scaled down replica.
Uses a pulse jet...not particularly high tech. It does look quite realistic, the weight would be the biggest difference.

It looks pretty lightweight. Looks like it struggles to gain speed at liftoff but still pretty cool.
Two of my oldest friends mounted a pulse-jet engine on a pickup truck.
"Because we couldn't find a Delorean."
if was to hazard a guess- the very front of the engine had those mini turbines skydivers use, which would explain the high pitched whine, while a small pulse jet provided the "buzz" after flyby.
