I have the same felt clunk and it was 5 bucks from a lawnmower shop. I think that it fits into a brush cutter tank.

I have found that underslung turbines are very susceptible to damage from small debris while on the ground. On my F14 and SU30, I made first a fly screen cover for the engine, but settled for a light...

Yes, I saw that on Fbook some time ago, looks pretty good, plus I think that he made it himself. With my SU30/X45 jet, I personally wouldn't fly it like that, but Grummania sell a off the shelf unit...

My understanding is that YES, it does qualify. It can be controlled by the pilot and bring the aircraft to a controlled stop.

Not really a brake, but a 1-2mm long piece of silicone fuel tubing on the axle pushing up against the wheel hub works really well. The power of the turbine overcomes the drag easily on take-off but...

I have a set of those wheels and brakes and they will fit the Avanti, with at the most a little bit of drum sanding required. I don't use them on this jet because brakes are not required over here...

I fly mine regularly with a state of the art X45 micro turbine. Same size as a P20, but twice the power and if another one came up for sale, I would grab it! Here is a video of mine....

Dave, that was just what they said on the Wiki page regarding the engines used. But surely 400lbs is more than one to one and he uses the wing for vertical, so I guess that helps.

Apparently, he changed to four Jetcat P400 engines, and that gave him the required thrust for hovering and ground take-off.

I have posted this earlier, but one litre would be good for at least 10 minutes, due to the low weight/high thrust ratio with this combination. I don't use brakes, not needed or required over here,...

That's about the weight of my Avanti with the X45, so some other installs maybe use heavy brake and undercarriage assemblies, plus a heavy dual wall pipe. Some have gone over 5kgs, so just goes to...

You will love it!! The JP retracts look very good quality but possibly a little heavy, but you will have so much power, a little bit of extra weight won't worry it. I even flew mine with a K45G2 and...

Definitely do not use a P20 (30mm) pipe with the X45!! The pipe has to be 45-55 mm to get the performance and a small pipe will run very hot and lose thrust.
