Some of the fire myths got old quick, but it was interesting to see them start a fire with ice.

I did noticed that Jamie's calculations for the plane myth assumed a two bladed prop, but the engine Adam got had a three bladed one. That by itself would have messed with the spacing of the slices on the other plane. I wonder why they didn't mention that.
No, I think Adam's calculations were for a 3 bladed prop. They were talking about 1500rpm, and he mentions 4500 slices per minute.

But, it was still proof of concept, and enough to confirm the myth. I'm not sure they wanted to buy another plane fuselage for a second try.
Yeah, kinda funny they didn't do a second try (assuming the engine was still workable). When Adam was building the plane frame, he made mention that they wanted something that could easily slip a new tail on to.
