ATJ RC Turbine Engines

ATJ is just one R/C turbine engine manufacturer out of 4 or 5. Real turbine engines make model RC airplanes as real as can be. I remember when ducted fans and even propellers were used on RC model jets. But now you can get the real thing….a jet engine.

These are real turbine jet engines that run on Jet-A1 or diesel fuel. They startup exactly like a real turbine engine and scream just like a real jet engine. Jet RC aircraft doesn’t get any better than this!!
