    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.

    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?

    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.

    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!
