Hey Russell,
My son has a Jets-Munts 250 in one of his jets and it runs awesome. Only have about 15 flights, but so far so good.

Clark, good to hear as there doesn't seem to be many produced or in aircraft. I already have a 166 and after an issue with the fuel pump not working it has been a work horse very since.

The altitude I fly at is 3400' 1036m and I lose about 15% thrust plus more when is 25c and above.

Which plane does he fly it in?

Good to hear I'm using it for my Rebel Pro that's arrived in the Carf warehouse, need the extra thrust and CMjet made a six liter tank for the large engine.
Munts engine are very strong just from what if see and heard.
