What does the dude want for it?
On craigslist for $1000. 2 engines. One in pieces. 5 propellers.
72hp should work for an experimental aircraft. Thats more HP than a 1600cc vw. Probably lighter than the cut-down 2 cylinder VW engines.JdawgParticipantOctober 22, 2017 at 1:22 pmPost count: 455

Not sure if that’s a good price or not…the biggest thing I can see is parts availability…could be cool tho. Maybe Red know more…Ben?BBWBParticipantOctober 22, 2017 at 5:51 pmPost count: 1011
I saw a couple of those drone engines on gyro copters near George AFB nearly 40 years ago. They are real noisy, almost ear splitingly noisy. I wouldn’t want it for any price.

So Red and I have been building this at work for the last year and a half…Of course its one of many projects we have going on so its not an everyday all day process but a lot of time and work none the less. JJ you should like it…its a big ass Cub with a Big ass motor on the front. Its a 60% scale super cub with a SPT-15 Turbo prop engine…and yes its an actual jet engine that runs on Jet-A 😎 its still in the final stages of assembly but the plan is for maiden flight mid November. We had our first run-up of the engine yesterday….FUCKIN AWESOME! I got a short video…I need to figure out how to post it. Anyway…here are a couple pics of the “MicroCub” as we’ve nicknamed it.JWDIIParticipantOctober 27, 2017 at 8:35 amPost count: 411
That cub is Freaking awesome! I took my son to a local RC Airstrip and he loved it. They are a lot of fun to watch!68tintopParticipantOctober 27, 2017 at 9:27 amPost count: 759
