Hi fellow exploiters! Today I finally discovered the art of air-less jet engines! (sort of, it doesn't work in space thou...)

And Now, presenting the aircraft with the best name ever.... No Air Jet!! https://kerbalx.com/cant_think_of_a_username/No-Air-Jet

?imw=5000&imh=5000&ima=fit&impolicy=Lett

All the info for the aircraft is written on the Kerbalx link. If you take it out for a flight on Eve, Duna, or, best, JOOL, Please take a video or picture and post it here! I would love to see some useful applications of jets without air! (It would also be good if you can fix this plane's aerodynamic model, as it is very bad)

And Last thing: I think I know why this works, as written on the Kerbalx page, but I am not really sure why it doesn't work in space. If any experts here know, please tell me, or tell me your theory. 

Best of luck, 

CTAU (Can't Think of A Username)

Here's your problem; with KAL overclocking, there has to be a tiny bit of fuel to begin with for it to work. Like, a single Oscar B for LF/O rockets. You do have that small amount of air in the air intake, but I doubt that will work/remain in the intake in space. Thus, you have no tiny bit of fuel, and the engine will fail to work.
