Hybrid Motor System

The Flow Control Valve for Computer Controlled Hybrid Motor operation provides the ability to throttle a hybrid motor like a liquid fuel motor with much less complexity and cost. It can be scaled up or down from 18″ diameter to as small as 4″, although at that size only open loop (absolute position) control is possible due to the lack of space for a Combustion Chamber Pressure Sensor. When combined in a system with a FMS/HPF Flight Management System the user can easily build a proven high performance motor.
