Default Pacific RC Jets?

Has anybody had any dealings good/bad with Pacific RC Jets in Oak Hills CA?

Are they the sole Kingtech dealer in the US?

Thanks,

-Dave

Dirks first class, I got my SM f-18 with him and boy did he earn his money working to get everything needed. Highly recommend him if you need something like that

I have purchased 2 models and two turbo prop engines from Pacific RC in the past couple of years. I have had a very good experience with them.

Purchased a K45TP from PacificRCJets.
Dirk always answered my emails and questions, zero issues.

Agree with everyone above, Dirk has always been readily available through either text or phone calls. Stands behind his product.

I think the responses above already send the appropriate message, but here's another endorsement for Dirk and the group at Pacific. Great guys to deal with.

You can order directly from Kingtechturbines.com but it is all the same people. We have been doing lots of business with them. All good experiences. Dirk, Barry, and Vera have been very reliable.

Ordered my T-1 he said 8 weeks, took 8 weeks 2 days. Not bad. As soon as I got it, I put it in my garage shelf. Been at that same place since the day I got it. Will work on it in 5-7 months. Can't wait! I ain't buying anything from any vendor from China that I can tell you with 100 % certainty. My turbine purchase if needed will be most probably(99.9%) from Jet Central. Bestest service period. My buddy has had nothing but super out of the way customer service. I ain't waiting 8 weeks for any turbine delivery. If these China/USA problems persist even more reason for me to stay away.

No issues. Have purchased several jets and engines. Dirk knows his stuff, is honest and provides excellent customer service.

Kingtech's are from Taiwan, not China.
