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.

Huh. Then I guess I was the one who wasn't paying attention. I really thought he only double the RPM to get the blade rate...

Oops.

Well, I still think it would have looked more like the photo if they had used a two bladed propeller, as that would have increased the distance between strikes, and required a lower ground speed to replicate the damage.
As it was, they clearly didn't have the test rig running fast enough and the cuts were way too close together.

Of course, due to the close spacing of the cuts on the test target, and the resulting tearing of the metal, it actually looked less like the photo than the chainsaw attempt. :D
