Default RE: Wren Turbo prop

Service is excellent - period!!

the 44 will be a bit small for a 100cc plane. I don't know know what the thrust rating on the 44TP is, but the larger MW54 turbo prop was good for about 65 lbs of thrust which was roughly the same as an 85cc gasser.

Propellor selection is critical. Too large a prop will load the turbine engine and increase the exhaust temperature very rapidly.....

They are interesting machines and a lot more efficient in producing power that the reaction turbines that most of us love...
