Jetex Motors & Fuel Pellets
My experience with a Jetex 50 Hell-Cat motor was somewhat limited. I had one or two, and would strap them to the cheap balsa gliders from Guillows.
The problem was with the fuse, as I recall. The way it worked was to insert the fuel pellets into the motor body, then insert a thin wire that was coated with fuse material through the nozzle and coil it to lay against the fuel.
Lighting the fuse was no problem, but getting it to keep burning as it passes through the tiny nozzle hole was almost impossible. The paltry amount of fuse wire that was provided with sngine motor and spare fuel was never enough to get the dang thing to work.
After all the fuse was gone but most of the fuel pellets were left, I’d load in full pellets, then crush others to fill the nozzle end so that it was next to the hole. Then, I’d hold a cigarette lighter up to the jstex until the fuel lit.

I’m lucky to have all my fingers. Once the motor finally lit, there was a cool hiss and a slight stream of smoke that shot out of the nozzle. Amazingly, the glider flew fairly well. Jetex motors, fuel, and accessories were imported from England and distributed in the U. Both have their original packaging and have not been run.

Most Internet sources posit that Imperial Chemicals Industries ICI ceased making the fuel pellets due to a combination of liability and regulation issues. Today, obtaining the required chemicals, or even doing an Internet search for them as I just didwill probably get you a big red flag in the Department of Homeland Security’s database.
