Default Sophia J-850

I have an opportunity to purchase one of these turbines. I have very little experience with turbines, and a quick google search provided very little information. As you can see fro the pictures, it is still in the box, and I believe all the necessary items are in there, with the exception of the readout screen.

1. What is the current worth of this turbine?
2. Are these turbines still available?
3. What about parts and service?
4. Is there an electric start option available?

I have a Byron BD-5J that might be the receiver of this turbine. Would 18lbs of thrust be enough for the BD-5J? The plane is not complete, so I do not have an overall weight yet.

Thanks
Rafael
