JETCAT direct is more expensive, @ £2700.00

Jetline is £2900.00

Does anyone know any place cheaper, when the doller was weak against the pound you could get one from JETCAT USA for £2100.00

or does anyone have one they are thinking of selling ?

Hi matt, I bought mine from Cyberheli and the service was great. Worked out about £2100 delivered

Matt,
The only issue buying a cheaper turbine outside UK is that if you need help you might not get it from the local JetCat supplier.
Turbines are complex, and they aren't like the two cycles engines.Plus they cost a lot more.
When I was looking for mine, I was looking for the cheapest place, but I decide to buy form JetCat USA, I paid like $500.00 more, but I am glad, because I had few problems in the beginning and Bob Wilcox from JetCat always helped me.
Just my opinion.

thanks for the post,

Unfortuantly in the Uk we dont have a JETCAT UK, and those that do deal with turbines just pack them up and post them to Germany and charge us for doing it...

I send mine back to JETCAT Germany myself, as that is where they go anyway...

Matt,

I bought mine from Vario Eastern Helicopters in Canada. After paying VAT and the the Parcel farce fee, I saved around £300. As we have talked in the past, you will know I have had a few problems with my PHT3 and Jetcat Germany was only too pleased to sort them out, and of course there is this forum

Oh **** ! this is going to be expensive?
