    That, is ridiculously awesome. If it wasn't for the perspective with the RC pilot it would be hard to tell it is a scale model.

    Those small jetengines are awsome. Such a nice technique. They give 22 lbs of thrust at 125.000 rpm!

    It's beyond a toy, this is serious business.
    The big ones were used by a Swiss guy who strapped 4 on a wing his back and flew across the mediterrainian see from Marocco to Gibraltar. He also flew across the English Channel with them.
    The big gus give 52 lbs of thrust.
    The main company who makes those is JetCat USA
    Link: http://www.jetcatusa.com/index.html
    A plane equipped with 1 or 2 of those will get out of reach of your transmitter in a freakin' hurry .
    But you can create the utmost realism because of the power of these engines

    si was actually a big RC head back in the day from air planes to submarines etc when i was about 18 and stopped playing with all that $#@! my mother decided to give all my $#@! away to some 10 year old kid.... like the little $#@!er don't even know how to use any of that $#@!. was i pissed when i found out! why dont you just buy an elctric one for like $150-$250 they are also fun and high performance.

    I wouldn't call them TOY engines more like mini Jet Engines.

    yeah i was scared that $#@! will chop my head off! i had the videos how to fly it and i had the landing gear for beginners but i know myself that if i started i would just smash the throttle in and see that $#@! go all the way up! or chop someones limbs off.

    That is exactly what they are.
    The ones on the back of the Jetman cost $5300 each!

    I fly RC planes (and some helicopters)...some of them range in price from $25.00 to about $1500 (spending any more than that on an RC plane or heli - my wife will cut something that I hold dear to me, right off).

    But I use this simulation to practice during winter months : http://www.realflight.com/

    You get the software, but you also get an RC controller: http://www.realflight.com/interlink.html

    It's a serious simulator able to reproduce very realistic flying parameters, especially for 3D helicopter aerobatics (which I suck at, frankly). I stick mainly to planes. Some of the models you've seen in these video easily exceed $20,000 in price! A friend of mine who owns his own RC hobby store had jets with those turbine engines, and man those things can move.

    If I bought my kid something for $8k and he left it collecting dust in the garage I would be tempted to lock the kid in the garage and let him collect dust with it.

    Ive been into airplanes cars and helis since I was 13. My dad got me into it and bought me my first plane on my birthday and got me a license to fly and all...so every weekend I was down at the field. I used to live in NC so there was a LOT more room to fly, no restrictions about how far you can go out (as far as you dare with your transmitter)

    Here we have Wantagh State park for flying, and its like flying in a box. Midairs all the time, cant fly over the marsh because of the birds and danger to the habitat, cant fly over the inbound side of the park because of people and the park department, so you just end up flying circles and dodging other peoples aircraft Click here to enlarge


    My plane still has the original engine in it...somewhat down on power, it never ever had a rebuild. Not bad for 15 years of use....it would blow more oil out the tailpipe than it would use for power LOL

    Click here to enlarge what I wouldnt give to get back into that hobby again. My dad picked it up from his father and I from mine...I would like to get my own kids into it someday. My dad and my grandpa built one back in 78 that had the record for the fastest prop driven plane on Long Island, exceeded 110mph in level flight. It takes a LOT to get a plane to move that fast.

    Unfortunatley when he was coming down in a dive for another pass, he was clocked at 118mph and the wings snapped back...and right into the ground.

    I worked closely with one of those mini gas turbines in school. They idle at 45,000 RPM and redline at about 190,000 RPM. They run on the same stuff you get at the airport. Jet-A kerosene. Although lighter fluid for campers is a more pure kerosene and thats what we used. I have a video of our project and how we instrumented it to gather data from the engine as part of our senior design project of the mechanical engineering program.




    They dont have an active lubrication system like their big brothers. You mix oil in the fuel (like you would do in a 2 stroke) and fuel is sprayed on the ceramic ball bearings to act as a coolant and lubrication. The ratio is something like 40:1 lube to fuel. The engine we used for this project was a Wren WM54 Mk3, about 15 lbf thrust and the engine weighs about 2.5 lbs. We built data acquisition equipment to record and compute all kinds of important numbers to monitor health and engine efficiency, fuel consumption, thrust, pressure, temperature before and after the compressor and turbine and much more... It was a year long project.

    Some people live long, meaningful lives.

    Other people eat shit and die.

    I'm not racist, I hate everybody equally; especially fat people.
