  1. Sad accident , just on a side note I think the camo paint or wrap is a bad idea , bright or fluro colours especially on small machine would be better, Condolence to family and friends

    Small turbines 100hp 130hp

    Turboprops operate best at higher flight levels 20 to 30 thousand feet and are most efficient between 220 to 350 knots so I guess the best replacement use for these engines would be something that currently runs a turbo, these small turbines are rated 100 HP and 130 HP up to 33 thousand feet and they are very light 28 /30 kg . Avgas is getting hard to find in manny countries so the diesel fuel would be a advantage. A Black shape prime running one of these small turbines would be a nice toy Blackshapeaircraft | WWW.BLACKSHAPEAIRCRAFT.COM Blackshape develops and produces high performance two seater carbon fiber aircraft, for leisure aviation and military training, focusing on innovation and quality.
