Tiny bladed turbine

A light weight bladed turbine. Built to test the concept this little engine is fast but temperamental. Note the 2 cent coin used as a backing plate.

    Why post info not available???

    Is it my computer, or is the video filmed with an extremely low frame rate?

    I hear turbine noises, but the video is more like a slide show.

    1 fps video. Can’t see anything interesting. Nothing appears to be moving except the cameraman.
    And the high pitch noise is annoying.

    If I video my car at 1 fps, add some engine noises, and then write in about my ether-powered car… will it get posted?
