Call Dave at motors and rotors. He can guide you through it very easily.

The Jet Joe Junior is a small affordable turbine, my club mate has a few of these and they have proved very reliable over many years.

Here he is flying one that is fitted to a foam Twin Jet up at the patch.

Anybody with a reliable running Jet Joe junior should immediately go and buy a lottery ticket.because you are indeed a very lucky person.

Even turbine gurus have given up on them. They have several major design flaws starting with the thrust bearing.

I would be very cautious about any claim for relaibility
