Jet engines. On an RC plane? Are you serious? I don't think that can be done, they would cost alot of money and I don't even think that they can be made to scale. They would just rip the plane apart. Though I may be wrong.

For frames, just do a Google.

EDIT- Okay then, I was wrong, you can get jet engines for planes, just put,

RC Jet Engines

in Google and it comes up with a few sites that sells them.

Oh right, the UK. Well then I bid you good luck in finding one! Us Brits don't get anything good! Especially mini jet engines.

Though I suppose you could ship one in from the states, if your willing to pay the postage.

i've seen jet powered RC planes. mostly do-it-yourselfers with an automotive turbo modified to be a jet engine. A lot of the folks do happen to be British too.

Better have lots of dough for the project.

finding the important compents is hard

weeeeeelllll,

sorry a bit busy with my own projects when i am rarely off work: sounds very inter - s - ting though.

start with your power plant- all else is going to run off of that because it determines how big/how much your plane will carry
here is a great start for the power plant:
www.aardvark.co.nz...

follow that with your control system. sorry no pointers there yet.

then what ever else you plan to carry.

now you've got your payload weight by adding up above and thrust. a little airplane dynamics calcs will get you the wing area.

yada, yada, yada and you have a jet engine powered RC.

I can fly anything . . . .it is landing that is the problem.

oops that site sells stuff now- i guess the popularity of the site has convinced the author to sell some of his stuff. I hadn't been there in a long, long time.

I hope i didn't break any rules- if so please just kill the link. Please don't fine me- i don't get many points as it is and i am not intentionally marketing anything.

if the link disappears i am very sure you can find similar under a google search (don't want to advertise that site either but what other real options are there?) for "homebuilt jet engine"

We had a great RC display at the Kaneohe Bay Marine Base at the end of 2004. Some BEAUTIFUL planes out there flying around. Let me see if I still have the pics to link to up on the net.

Ok, here they are. From the Kaneohe Bay Airshow of Oct 2004. Obviously the WWII ones aren't jet powered, but the others all were. There were many jet powered planes there.

That is some sweet planes! I love the WW2 ones, they look mighty dandy. I would absoulutely love to have one, the only RC plane I have is a cheap £50 B2.

i would love to build a f-16 like that


wounder how much it would cost

An awful lot most probably. Alot of money that could crash to the ground at any moment!

most of those look to be DUCTED FANS- driven by piston motors

real mini-jet engines usually require a bit larger aircraft don't they?- else there has been huge leaps forward in tech over the last 5 years or so.
