Diet Coke and Mentos Engine

For this hack you will need the following equipment –

 

First off you will have to extract your air powered engine from the air hogs model, i recommend playing with it for a while first though as they’re pretty cool :).

The air hogs aircraft look like this –

Inside the housing is the air engine, when extracted and after removing the propeller (you can put it back on afterwards, it just makes things easier fro the time being) you’ll have this –

The problem is that we need to replace the air hogs bottle with a larger one, this small bottle cannot contain a large enough volume of air to power the engine with the Mentos – the reaction fills the small bottle with coke and mentos bubbles and you get a sticky engine – engine don’t like sticky :).

Moving on, we now need to remove the engine from the Air Hogs bottle, this is quite simple, there are only three screws attaching the engine to the bottle, remove them.

Discard the bottle, all we need is the engine, the screws and the rubber seal that was acting as a gasket between the engine and bottle.
