X-Jet GPL

Hi Bruce -
When can we expect the Valveless X-Jet to go GPL?
It will change transport with the industry & Uber trying to be the next VTOL revolution - http://evtol.news

If we can sort the noise, we are away laughing

Well I'm in the process of sorting out exactly what I put into GPL/Public Domain before I'm too feelble-minded to decide... and the XJet work will likely be included.

Well I for one think your public would like you to see some recognition for your work, before the feeble mind sets in :-) "Perhaps a vote"

Also there will always be "Google armchair experts" to argue this and that, ignore them - Rutherford did

1) There is lots of work in the eVtol space but batteries are lagging, in weight, speed and size.
2) No-moving parts is a big target for aviation too along with noise.

I believe a modification of the X-Jet would create a hybrid engine that creates thrust and recharges smaller batteries in flight, using electric motors for lift-off "noise abatement" with only 20% of lift-off power required for cruise.

This is possible with off the shelf componentry at the moment, I can send the electrical components and structural data if you like - its all public domain as the only patent in the field doesn't high-light pulse jet & there appears to be no interest from commercial.
