Hi Alex,
the Evojet 90 is no more manufactured, but the good news is that it will be replaced by a new 100 class (same size class than the 90).
I think it will be a very good size engine for your DG303.
I'm also be interested if you can post some pics of the AFjet installation.
Regards
Max

Today I flew the Swift S1 with the Sprite power and with some instrumentation. It may be of interest that Eagle Tree showed a max speed of 133 mph and max positive G of nearly 10G and a negative 6 G. Just goes to show that even small turbines on a large glider have a turn of speed. You have to be careful of overpowering gliders and simply breaking the wing. The Topmodel Swift is very strongly built, which is just as well!

Hi Guys,
My Paritech DG 303 5m is almost ready.
I have one question on the bayonet type retaining pin.
How is it supposed to release, is it just supposed to release on pulling or is there another technique
Also what do you guys do to prevent the wingtips from getting scuffed when flying from tarmac ?
I seen some gliders like the Fox have tiny wheels on the tips , this doesnt seem to be a possibility with the DG 303 because the tip are very thin and also turned upwards

Here's my friend Johan with his turbine converted Salto glider (Wren 54 for power) :

He's also working on another 6M glider, powered with a JetCat P160 (!). See his website.

On my Fox, the turbine mount was made to be adjustable so I could set the incidence relative the wing section centerline. Experiment to see what incidence works best for you. For a heat barrier, I used a thin 3" wide stainless steel sheet separated by an air gap wrapped around the leading edge of the vertical stab. You could try this as well.

Hi
I have set the incidence parallel to the wing centerline.
But the turbine is set at 3 -4 deg right thrust , this is to prevent the hot exhaust from hitting the tail directly. This was confirmed by paritech .
It does help, I had posted some pics of the turbine install in a dfferent post

There is some informative stuff on this thread so rather than start a fresh. I too am looking at a Turbine glider for my next project, does anyone have any comments on the Skymaster DG600 for a P20 they would like to share?.

Hi Guys
I´m very interested on building a jet glider , more specific , a 4m topmodel CZ MDM 1 Fox , and power it with a Merlin VT80 , I´ve seen some videos, and it seems to be a good combination , specially for aerobatics , there are a couple of threads about the topic , but I haven´t found info about the engine mount , can you give me some info on that?

Thanks!
Peter

I had a fox from soringusa, 4.4m and use a P60.. was perfect.. maybe a srong turbine will be nice.... but a P60 is enought.
look for my videos

Hi Peter,
I'm in a similar boat as you! I have a 4M Lunak from the Czech Republic that needs a mount for my Wren 44 but can't find much about turbine mounting designs .... would appreciate some proven mount systems info as well!
Cheers
Rene

Hi Rene
I´ve checked some pictures, and in some cases I´ve seen that there´s a beam that goes all the way from top to the bottom of the fuselage structure , so it gets some more strength, I would probably use a 5mm carbon fibre pice for that purpose , and then you simply screw the turbine to it.
that´s just a wild guess, but it could work
