KJ-66 Build

Hey guys,not been here for a while. I want to build a KJ-66 turbine and was wondering if anyone has info on where to get parts. There are parts all on the web but I want to get the rights ones the first time or get someone here to steer me the right way. I have built to working jetpacks and took three years as there was no real info out there. I don't want this to take that long. I got some plans off of ebay with the cnc drawings and also the book " Home Built Turbines " by Kurt Schreckiling. 2005 printing. It has the plans in the back also. Any build logs on here would be great also. Thanks

What you want to be careful of when buying parts is that there not some Chinese knock off using inferior metals. Sorry I dont have any one to direct you too.. but I did learn this much when I rebuilt my Ram750 that uses KJ66 parts.

Would love to see your jetpacks in action!!

Ok I will check it out. Thanks. It took three and a half years to complete. Still working on things to fly. $400 a flight. Working on a concentrator and it will bring it down to $50
