Default Xicoy 90 and 120

Released yesterday, the new Xicoy 90 and 120.

My own X 45 hugely impressed me, a truly superb engine in every way, as is my Jetsmunt Merlin 100. Amazing value too !

If these engines are even half as good as the 45 and 100 they will be exceptionally successful and I wish them every success with both these new engines and turboshaft and turbo prop versions of the 45.

Well done, Gaspar and Mike.

Just saw them this morning on the USA importer/distributor site

https://www.fb-rc.com/xicoy-turbines

Much like the X45, the installed weights of the new 90 and 120 are quite low
I would expect the same quality and performance that people have come to expect from Gaspar.

Always one! LOL Once I have pricing I will update according.
Going to be a good 2021 for rc jets, I have a two twin projects the 120 is prefect for since both are tail mount turbine designs. When I get one I will do my usual video unboxing/review, being able to adjust thrust ranges allows motors to be run in smaller models while keeping similar motor sizing. great for guys with multiple models that want to move the motor around. Just do the install kit and it becomes simple for this type of person.

Im all in for one when Keith has them available. I emailed him about this yesterday because I was impressed by the specs., and Xicoy seems to deliver on the tech., yet still reasonable pricing.

Nope lol prices listed and let the beating continue!

Also due the worst website hosting I have ever seen I will be taking my domain back to shopify, the address will not change but the site will look slightly different with some features like the discussion forum will be gone for a bit. The old Jets Munt USA site is still there just being changed and locked atm and
I found a third party legit full up forum that embeds with shopify so I will add that eventually.
Just taking awhile since the import of over 500 items didnt work all that well so I have to go back and edit every single item again.
No idea how Wix gets a good review, worst of everything uggghh

hang in there! website backends have changed so dramatically over the past years, google "hooks" and all, not to mention the storefront aspect. I can see why so many have separate "shopping" experiences from the browsing piece...

Hi Joe, all my pre-orders are pushed to March and was a really large order, so unless they got one from some place else I don't think the US has any yet. I'm getting two for the 120s for F-22/F-18 so I will have plenty of info on that one and the other I will do a "whats in the box" video showing the weight and features once I get on.

A friend of mine is using the 90 one. He had it already 2 times servicing as this version is sensible to bubbles or micro-dirt inside the fuel.

Every turbine engine is sensitive to bubbles and dirt inside the fuel

I didn't think the engine was out to customers and in planes yet.

your friend most probably means the older version of a Jetsmunt turbine and got some dirt in the fuel lines. No turbine likes that.
