Just curious, do you own any ducted fan jets?

Sorry.. its not quite that easy.. You might get the thrust but you will pay a heavy weight penalty and short flight times

EDF's will never have the same effect on the flightline
You just cant beat the smell and roar of a turbine jet on takeoff and climb out

How true, but EDFs have a much lesser effect on your wallet.

THE TURBINE IS REAL!!!

HobbyKing Turbine (4 min 33 sec)


Bruce said he was going to do a preview last year but HK said they still had bugs to iron out so he didn't do it. Since he's just released the video above I guess we can assume HK has fixed most of the issues preventing them manufacturing it?

This is old news... the video is over 4 years old

What you see isn't always what you want to see....

No. It's a re-watch suggestion. I watched the video 4 years ago and youtube suggested I watched it again. I wasn't paying attention. It's kind of hard to get used to the UI when they change it every year.
