    RE: PROTECH F15

    Any more details of the engine?

    How much did it cost? Where did you buy it from (any UK dealers)?

    How does it run?


    The F15 looks great and that little engine would be awesome for the club field.

    RE: PROTECH F15

    The engine is available from Martin Lambert in Germany www.lambert-modelturbine.de i dont think
    he has a uk dealer.

    the engine runs well and starts very quick with the supplied 12v air blower.

    The cost, his larger turbines are cheaper but this little one is about £1700.
