I would say a 13lb to 20lb would work just great in it. We will have a turbine Kit for it very soon. Thanks Billy D

Think what speeds you would get with a 20lb turbine, when it does 206mph on a dinky little 110mm fan

I think Cliff is doing one with a VT80 turbine, that should be a very nice combo.

Btw, I will be making up a inlet adapter to fit my Ramtec fan, so if anyone else planning to run this fan size wants one just let me know, the one included in the kit is a little too small to fit the fan properly. I will post up some pics of this when I get it done, hopefully sometime next week.

It does come with two adapters, one to fit 110mm fans and the other I really don't know what fan size they want it to fit. It is a bit too large to fit a 120mm fan( I tried it on a TJ120 shroud) and too small to fit a Dynamax or Ramtec fan. But I do have a plug from when I did the inlet extension/adapter for my MiG-15 so it will be easy enough to knock out a short adapter for this jet.

I'd like to see some video of any jet doing a 150mph snap. I have only seen them done throttled way back. I would never try it, but would like to see it.

This is the fastest snap I've ever seen from a jet, check out the 2:00 minute mark, perhaps 125+ MPH give or take?

Just a little caution on tinting. I tinted my JTM L39 a little too dark with Tamiya Smoke and as a result it's nearly black. It's off my list of possible planes to fly when temps are up over 90 degrees. The plastic gets very hot and I think I even managed a small dimple where I put some pressure on it during a hot day. I've found the Transparent Blue, the best for a really dark tint without the risk of heating up the plastic. You'll want to make sure you keep the canopy at least, in the shade on hot days.

Just need to keep it out of direct sunlight or put a blanket over the canopy. You will see a ton of guys with covers on their canopies at jet meets.
