This was posted elsewhere but I thought I would post in the turbine section also.
Every crash of a turbine I have ever seen (not many) usually destroys a $5000 turbine engine.
This guy has balls of steel !!

Watch at YouTube

I think about the hereafter. I go somewhere to get something, then wonder what I'm here after ?

Jamie is a very accomplished flyer, after seeing some of his vids, he flies at a club not far from me where some of the guys from our club fly, they speak very highly of him and say he is an awesome pilot with nerves of steel.

That flying on the synergy look awesome, the camera man did well to keep up. Just shows how turbines have moved on and now they are getting smaller more can be done with them.

I was watching someone with a Bergen magnum 44 ( i think that is the name) that was also a nice machine and very agile. I havent seen a Trex conversion as of yet.

Something's bound to break mid flight one day.There must be a huge strain on the drive components.

Very impressive video! What are the length of the blades on that? The text accompanying the video states the head-speed is 2200-2300 RPM and the turbine running at 175k RPM! Blimey!

The Wren MW54 does sound a lot nicer than the Wren MW44 though!
