Model Aircraft Turbine Engine Vs. Synthetic Zombie Head [Video]

As part of quest to build a flying Iron Man suit, YouTubers “the Hacksmith” acquired a model aircraft turbine engine that is expected to provide the majority of the proposed suit’s thrust.

As part of the process, the team conducted a safety test that involved studying the effects of the engine’s heat. To do so, they positioned a synthetic Ivan Head zombie analog directly behind the engine and fired it up. The result is a perfect illustration of why turbine engine safety guidelines should be closely followed.

Check out the video below, and (needless to say) don’t try this at home.
