Those itty-bitty metal wheels gonna hold up? Just kidding - thats way cool. Is an axial flow supercharger next? -- opps that would be another thread....

Experience is the BEST Teacher. Is that why it usually arrives in a shower of sparks, flash of light, loud bang, a cloud of smoke, AND -- a BILL to pay? You usually get it -- just after you need it.

This is probably getting ahead of things but have you decided on the model RC you want to put it in.
Completed, what do you expect the engine to weigh?
I have an old Cressline kit Saab Viggen that I got off ebay. I could put this size turbine in it and then limit the rpms with the ecu to keep the power down. Thats why I started on the smaller turbine a little lighter and a little less thrust. This one weighs a little over 2 lbs. just the engine not counting fuel pump, ecu, plumbing, electric start ( not necessary ). A safe assumption is double the static thrust and thats the upper limit of the weight on the plane it can fly complete with fuel, some planes carry 3 plus liters of fuel. I have a 11 sec. video of it I wonder if there is somewhere I could download it. oh yea I like what you said to Patrick about it, not too many people are interested in it or appreciate the work I put into it, its nice to hear everyones comments on this site.

No! No limits!!!... and then limit the rpms with the ecu to keep the power down. ...
I know you can upload movies but I am afraid another will have to chime in here as I do not know the procedure. Hope someone does, that will be interesting to see and hear.
Very impressive work Greg
wow that is awesome
did it start to move away from ya at the end? any way to measure the RPM?
instead of your motor, use that thing direct drive on your mill
Have to LOVE the sound as it spools up !
That would make a great hair dryer.
