Home Built Model Turbines Version II by Kurt Schreckling

It was over 30 years ago when Kurt Schreckling first started developing model turbines using simple means. He went on to build the first flight-worthy model turbines, becoming one of the pioneers to bring this fascinating mode of propulsion to model aircraft.

In the meantime the pace of development has increased. Engines are now capable of much greater performance and are more reliable. Today possibilities are wide and varied: they include everything from complete construction sets to single finished parts, not forgetting essential accessories such as fuel pumps or electronic controls. These all provide an excellent basis for home-building, as Kurt Schreckling describes in this book in great detail. The 104 pages feature: Principles of Model Jet Turbines Selecting the right turbine for the right model, Necessary accessories, Test stand and measuring equipment Home-built Jet Engines to enable the build of the KJ-66, TK50 and the J-66 kit version turbine from Behotec, Extensive drawing plans and parts lists Construction of individual components, Detailed instructions and photographs Important safety instructions.
