    Rookie 2 power plant

    Im putting together a Rookie Jet 2 with full thrust vectoring.
    My biggest concern is power plant for 3D flying. I am not interasting in high speed but i want a jet that can hover and do all 3D manovers.
    I was thinking of putting a Jetcat 140 which puts out 31 pounds of thrust and wanted your openion if this is going to do the job.
    Jet will be kept as light as possible and i will not be installing a smoke tank for thuis reason.
    Thank you

    RE: Rookie 2 power plant

    Really you still need a P160 turbine, it will hover with a P-140, but you will be close to the top of the box and will have very little for pull away. (you would not be safe to hover close to the ground!) The vector nozzle takes away quite a bit of power, even with small movements

    HI Dave,
    Thanks for the reply.
    I think i better put the bigger power plant in it then, and be extra carefull on the throttle stick. :-)
