Yes, but it is all in German and the addy is on my work computer. If you go to the Vario model heli site and download their catalog pdf (190 pages) the web link is in there towards the end.

had one in a plane was not the turbo prop though. Boat application...... now that worth exploring. The helecopter was too expensive for little flying time.

This is not the one pictured above, but this turboshaft turbine engine is probably more suited to r/c boats. It's output shaft is axial with turbine rotation, not perpendicular like helicoptor model above.

Incredible technology.

The helo turbine output is axial too, the rest of the "stuff" shown is part of the heli kit.

Gotcha, Good point, thanks...but the gear reduction is already built in to the other one I posted...if you take off the "other stuff" from post one, I wonder if there's anything like that.
