Runs off a steam plasma tube. A 25x1cm steam plasma tube will propell a smal lhelicopter – with no need ever to refuel.
When you burn Fossil Fuels, you do nuclear fusion
1 Cm(H2O)n+TU+SP->(mCO2+(n-r)H2O-E)+r(He+O+E2+X-ray+L) Enet=10kW
So a spark and oxygen turns petrol/diesel into CO2, steam – but also heliuum and oxygen gases. Most of the fusion power is taken in, to oxidise the carbon radical.
A steam plasma tube is a lot better
2 H2O+TU->X-ray+L+E3 E3=900 MW for a 25x1cm steam plasma in a tube
This is massive energy. We need to sit the tube in a water boiler, to prevent it melting. The energy production is or 4 atmospheres. We use a small steam cycle to turn this into 1 MW of electricity.
When we turn the engine off, we step down to 3.2 atmospheres. Just to keep the tube hot – ans generate 20kW of power. When running we get 1 MW. A hellicopter needs 45kW. So we fly between cities.
So massive power, no petrol or diesel burn – so no CO2.

Hydrogen fission – as done by ever radiant star corona. Where the stars energy output comes from.
To start the plasma off, we pulse a fluorescent light starter through the steam in a glass tube. It carries on at 4 atmospheres, barely being exothermic at 3.2.When you invoke E=mc2, you find a high performance car will use 10-17cc of regular wawter in its lifetime.
