Default Pulse Jet engine in airplane

In the 1960's I got a Tiger jet and I got it started once. I used to know people that flew Dinajets. Those things would glow red hot and it was consitered imposible to enclose them inside of an airplane. Now there is a Video of a radio control F104 with a pulse jet. My question is what is the airplane made out of that it can stand the heet?

I wouldn't think a pulse jet would run any hotter than an turbine......with a pulse jet the fire is off and on...with a turbine the fire is always on. But I am no expert

Well I have never seen a model turbo jet. I have worked on full scale turbo jets and I know on the out side they do not litterly  glow bright cheery red. I looked at other pulse jet R/C airplanes on Utube and they were all mounted out side of the airplane. I think these guys have done something special to fly a model with the pulse jet engine enclosed and I wonder how they did it.

I never saw one on a RC plane. When i was younger i used to see them on some control line planes. They were LOUD!!! Bring a grown man to tears.
If i remember right Bruce Tharpe has them on a couple of rc models and figured out a throttle control of some sort. I think he had some videos also. I would PM him and see what he says. That's the only person i have heard of flying them lately.

I remember seeing a demonstration of a Dynajet in the high school auditorium in the 1950s. It could only run for 10 seconds when static. And the engine did turn bright orange. At the Willow Grove NAS Nats back then the control-line jets were unbelievably loud. Pulse jets have no throttle and burn a lot of fuel.
