Default Check This Out!!! Merlin 200XBL

Incredible, is all I can say!! Wow, 45lbs of thrust in a 160 size turbine with integrated valves, brushless pump, brushless starter with a xbus system.

And look at the price, I will let that speak for itself. Nothing else compares especially considering the price.

This nice addition looks like 3300 shipped for an integrated micro turbine package (like VT-80) but 45 lbs of thrust to vs 18-20

If so

Hammer meet piggy bank...

VT-80 is good answer to multiple models and a single turbine or turbine\electric hybrids

The two vt-80 are reserved for my skymaster mig-29 ,I think this is the perfect match for jet with two turbines and under 40 lbs.

has anyone gotten this turbine, I know they were hard to get due to limited stock, but seems to be me everyone has been talking about the k-210 and forgotten about this turbine.

Guys.. I got a M200X a month ago and is living in my Ultra Bandit (4.8L).. I was so impressed with the quality, power and weight I ordered two more for a special project .. Just last week I got both and is being installed right now. The company will be closed for the holidays from Dec 24 to Jan 6.

The list is long (and I'm on it) for the M200X and the next scheduled delivery is by March 15th, unless you can get one from Dreamworks, Ultimate Jets or Altecare.

Hands down its the best engine on the market for this class.... Im very happy with it...

Picking up mine Saturday.

It also may well find a home inside a UB...

If it is akin to my Merlin 140L or VT 80, it will be a very powerful, fuel efficient, trouble free motor..

There was some previous discussion about it here. http://www.rcuniverse.com/forum/rc-j...ne-market.html

I've had the Jets Munt 200xbl since the start of November what a power house and liking the fuel economy too. It's a perfect match for my Skymaster 1/6 F-16 when I was running the Kingtech K -170F i was getting about 5mins flight time with just under a 1/4 of a tank left now running the Jets Munt 200xbl I'm flying for about 8mins and having a 1/4 of a tank left.
