any chance that you will test-run the turbine (before placing it in the heli ? ) Just curious about how what is needed to start it.

Yes, the engine will be test-run on the bench prior to installing it in the airframe. Support equipment, safety and startup procedures will be discussed.

just finished watching the second turbine build video, awesome stuff. its incredible that for something that produces so much power for its size I thought it would be more complicated than it looks (i expected pipes tubes and sensors to be going everywhere). I cant wait to see the final build and test bench videos for this.

This helicopter has really captured me, i never thought that something like this would. All I need to do now is either land that 350k per year job or win the lotteries. Neither will ever happen so I will have to keep dreaming. Maybe when I retire I could get one, but then I will be waiting for about 30 years before getting one

Keep em coming.

Well, there won't be any more vids coming for at least 2 weeks. One, because I'm out of raw footage and two, I won't have any time until at least the 19th to work on shooting any more.

There's a ***SLIGHT*** chance (Basically slim and none, but I want to tantalize you impatient bastages ehhe) I might get the 1st test start done this week, but don't hold your breath.
