    With a stronger power source and motor, this would be a great device. But this is a good homemade rig nonetheless.

    "Patent Pending" no less. I'd like something powered by a small 4-stroke gas engine though, preferably the kind they put on large model airplanes. If I'm getting a power boost, I want it to look/sound/smell like I'm getting a power boost!

    I'd go for a Pratt & Whitney Twin Pack myself.

    That sounds like an episode of Mythbusters in the making.
