    M40 turbine

    After seeing a clip from Jet Power 2012 with a prototype of the M40, I am salivating for it? When do you think this will go public? I'd like to stuff this in my Habu32, 4lbs more the a P20 that's sweet.

    RE: M40 turbine

    I contacted them before on it. Last year it was projected to be a M-35. At the time... it was only making 28~30n... so they are still tweaking it. Also... the proto I saw didn't have the starter yet. Also... it was supposed to be under $2k USD.

    Now... if that same engine is making 40n... that will be GREAT !!! I have a wren 44 in a CMP Hawk... but as I recall... the M35 was supposed to be a little smaller, and lighter. Personally... the P-20 is a little under powered for a 90mm EDF model, if you are flying off grass.

    I hope they release it soon. There is a real market for a 35n turbine since the release of all these nice quality, inexpensive 90nn EDF models.


    ****EDIT******


    Here's a thread that we were talking about it last year, and hoping for a spring release....

    RE: M40 turbine

    I'm sorry for the misinformation spread by one of our German dealers in the youtube video. The engine is rated to 35N, and the release date is not set yet, we need to find a way to manufacture it easily so that the end price be interesting, currently we are spending too much time tweaking each engine, couldn't enter in mass production as it is now.

    RE: M40 turbine

    Thanks for the info Gaspar.

    I hope you guys get it done soon. I know Jet Central said the Flee was no longer viable... The P20 is too small (along with the Kolibri...) and the MW44 really is too big for the 90mm models. Like I said... I have an MW44 in a CMP Hawk... but it would be nice to loose half a pound in the overall weight.

    I am interested too! The Jet Hangar kits would build real light with an engine like this.
    It does NOT have to be GIANT to be scale!

    Kingtech backburnered there microturbine so there is a good opportunity for somebody to grab the marketshare on small turbines that perform well in the 30-35n range. Hopefully. We will see the m35 hit the market soon....
