No Piston engine

Looks interesting...but how do you seal the flaps on the outer edge with the combustion chamber? I see this having the same issues as the Wankel rotary engine with sealing and blowout.

Looks interesting but in addition to the sealing issues, the ratchet mechanism that can be engaged 2500 times per minute will also be an interesting challenge also. That is a lot of impact loading there and those parts would be short lived.

Helecopters(Blackhawks)use a one-way clutch on their rotors so technology is already in place for ratchet mechanism.

Flap Engine

Harder to build than a standard piston engine
and I see no mechanical, or efficiency, advantage.
Good calls on the ring and ratcheting clutch problems.
I would also note that you might expect metal fatigue at the
shaft/flapper junction, and cooling problems for the flapper.
(Both sides exposed to combustion gas.)
Also, whence cometh lubrication for the torroidal cylindar walls?
