Turbine Engine sound modules for our models?

I saw a video on here the other day of a guy with a ME-262 and a very slick sound module installed. For the life of me I can't find the post anymore but I wanted to know what if anything people are using for turbine startup etc in terms of sound effects. With the new "quiet" fans I think this could be extremely cool.

One is being developed. I asked for start-up--idle---and then run up from idle. The only that I found was close to 500 bucks...I will make my own before I'd pay that

I thought a whistle tube & a flexiable / bending reed would be doable ?
Me do it ? Not that interested
Remember those Kazoos ??? Hook the slider up to a Y on the servo throttle ?
We certainly have the air power to have a loud variable whistle.

I would never want to cover up the pleasant sound of a Stumax though.

Nope...I want it for scale effect. 1. Start up (canopy closing)...fan not running... 2. idle...fan not running... 3. throttle up for taxi (sound of turbine spooling up)..then fan starts, sound off. etc

Sound systems are really fun to play with. I have the Benedini sound system from aerosound on my P-51. It's really fun and has a great sound...video really doesn't do them justice. Everyone that's heard it has a huge smile on there face. They already have the turbine sound for you...look on the side bar on aerosounds home page and you will see the logo10 with turbine sound...really nice. My P-51 is on the home page as well. I have two 4"speakers and run a 4s 1800 mah pack to power the system...it's 1 lb all together.
