What is the design rpm of this liquid piston engine?
I wonder if this would be a good candidate to drive a ducted fan?

I just watched the investor seminar. It had some pretty interesting tidbits. Looks like several big companies working actively with liquid piston. Possible large UAV, possible APU use, 2 years before anything really developed commercially. There seems to be a lot of interest but the breakthrough will be once an OEM starts making quantities that prove the design. Then it should have a lot more folks willing to jump on the band wagon. Here's a link. not sure if it will work.
