Jeemo

Talk about EXCITING! Introducing Jeemo from Glider-It, the FIRST and so far the ONLY motorglider with a dedicated and integrated turbine inside! Jeemo is engineered as an almost ready to fly kit. (Turbine sold separately.)

The Jeemo is specifically designed to fit the Kingtech K-45G3 turbine which burns either Jet A1 or Kerosene. Kingtech is the technical sponsor of the project. Jeemo can be easily assembled and ready to fly in approximately in eight hours of work.

Jeemo is produced in two different layouts: Fast Slope (FS) and Power Dynamic (PD) applying Glider-Itís latest EXTRALIGHT TECHNOLOGY.

The Jeemoís kit will be provided with everything is required for the installation of the Kingtech K45 turbine.

The Xicoy X45 turbine should be an excellent option too.

Probably can't hand launch it, and has to be dolly launched.

I want one!

I imagine though that the turbine jet cost as much as the glider itself, and then you need Electronics also.

Anybody got 5K to loan me? lol

I don't think this qualifies as a "Glider"???
It's a jet airplane with no landing gear
It's a beauty nonetheless....

A Kingtech K45G3 cost less than the kit. The kit is quite complete. Looks like after the turbine you just need to add servos and you RX. Plus the dolly. It should be under 5K complete.
Looks like a hoot to fly.

Unfortunately there isn't anywhere I know of in San Diego Diego that I would be able to fly it due to the altitude ceiling limits and the noise.

Love the shape. Certainly one of those times though where "if one has to ask the price then one has no business buying one, does one?" applies
