    Understand what you mean, VG. I've had both good and bad supervisors, including rehired annuitants. You meet all types of people. Since retiring, I'm now with two organizations that are helping...

    Wow, donnyman, a Wren turbine nonetheless, I'm impressed. That's advanced modeling at its best and I'm in no shape to pursue that level of investment and dedication to fly those. For me, my speed is...

    Donnyman, some are taking those older Jetex kits and converting them to electric ducted fans and micro RC. One could scale them up also and make larger RC planes.
