Sorry, your first post sounded like a noob.

With 3 quality turbines you probably have been more than happy with their peformance.

You are aware of the procedures & problems these engines can present so you are, at least, making an informed choice.

I guess, being a Wren owner, I sort of resent the way JetJoe has used the usual chinese R & D proocess
(recieve & duplicate) to blatantly copy the hard work & development that small companies put in & at the same time offer
none of the service, spares backup we take for granted from ethical people like the Wren company or Martin Lambert.

Personally, what I have always found is when I buy cheap a few months & problems later I start thinking 'I wish I had spent a few bucks more & bought EXACTLY what I wanted in the first place'.

Good luck! John.

If i get the kolibri it would be the T25.
What would be the advantages and disadvantages for all three?

Fine... I will. But... you have to give me an UNQUESTIONED LIFE TIME warranty, like Jet Central does. (assuming I send it in for it's 25 hr check-up)

Ok this thread is to share& compare experience with small turbine Not to start a brand trashing thread. Trust me when I say that they all have there problems and I have two of the three major brands IMO.


An life time warrantee dose not Guarantee Reliability, if anything it proves that they have more problems they are aware of and will fix it for a fee

I agree. BUT... they will get fixed.

I've know a few engines, from reputable brands, that have pitched the compressor, and the owner will basically get a new engine. I've seen a bunch of threads where JJ guys have warranty claims... and they will get a set of bearings, or a new part... but then the next time they have a prob... they are SOL.

Don't get me wrong... I was all for an inexpensive turbine, and I was hoping that JJ engines would be OK. BUT... they weren't. Heck... the 2 original USA distributors both got away from them because of the warranty, and running issues.


With that all said... The JJJ isn't that bad... assuming it's built properly. And, as far as I know... Bret is the only guy who can do it. (commercially)


So... finally... Winkybone... In regards to this thread... I'm not bashing. I was simply stating the FACTS. AND... I think the JJJ is a good engine, as long as you buy it from Ausi-Jets.

Sounds like the OP was not looking for facts or a comparison, just wanted some positive reinforcement to buy JJ

Why would you not get the p-20? You KNOW it will work right. Its way more usable too. 3.5# thrust from the JJ wont get you very far, and manual start with the blower really limits what you can install it in. So its really kinda a novelty you can put on a stryker or something.

I just don't like a thread that has strash everywhere because in the future some is going to have he same question and there going to find this thread.

If you want to post that brand sux,go to RCU. There is plenty of threads that are crapped up with useless this brand sux ,,,this one is awesome because I received a part from the dealer next day and so on. No one wants to hear that unless a thread is specifically started in thy regards. So enough with this I Did in fact start this thread to find some that may have been running a Jet Joe Junior BUT no seems to own one at all.
