I did hear from other guys with that engine that the first few times it happened there was some push-back from the manufacturer that it was a user problem, not an engine problem. However, after the engines started coming back with the same issue, the manufacturer realized that it *was* an engine problem and they came out with a new compressor and started replacing the ones on the failed engines for no cost.

Different manufacturer, same issue and initial response. See Len's post above - it can happen to any of them...

If you want bullet-proof tanks, go with AMT's or old JetCat P-120's...
