What impresses me is how tiny the turbine is.

That looked smaller than a soda can.

Awesome! Err... wait... it sucks! It's not electric!

Naw, that is incredible! I think I have a link somewhere for a company in Germany making tiny turbines, maybe that one. I saw a vid with it in a FlyFly F-100.

Thanks for the link!

Yup, that is a small turbine, but I'd venture it is not cheap!

Found out a fellow club member piled in his wet turbine model yesterday. Word has it, not much was salvageable from that multi-thousand dollar model.

Yeah, the landing gear on his model was $400. Each. And there are three of them. All bent up.

These are small, and NOT cheap!

This might be a similar unit, key in the translation button.

The small turbine engine is the jewel among all the other classic engines(i.c., electric motors). Being a jewel is pricey and small ...that goes without saying. Great stuff and would love to see the aircraft in action. If possible, please pose a video.
