Great topic Emile as I've wondered the same thing. I can understand when you state "old school". I've followed your expertise for years. Thanks for what you have provided for the scale community.

"How high do they go? Are those things hard too fly? How much do they cost?

I have a Thunder Tiger Ecureuil. Its nothing fancy but its a start. I bought it from a local guy and he included a nitro raptor 60 airframe. I want the clutch still as I can spool up the motor and get a bit of a scale sound of the turbine running but no blades spinning yet.
Its not going to take much work getting the motor mount made but I just don't have the time currently.
Then all I need is a 3 blade head and I'm good to go. I have servos, motor, ESC etc. to get it together.

Wemo, thank you for that, its my pleasure!

Yes the clutch and the soft start feature of the esc definitely is a must do for electric scale, we call it the "poor man's turbine"
here is my Kiowa, my 1st electric scaler still under construction back when it had raptor mechs spooling up.

Great mathematical solution (flying FJ). Please copy and paste this info in the scale tip of the week thread. It's primarily a build tip thread but this is great reference material for folks just getting started in multi-blade heads.

All helis and planes have an expiration date stamped on them...you only find it after you crash!!
