Jet Central Rabbit 100 (Mint) trade for a VT-80?

       Remove this ad - become a site supporter!
Needing more power? I know this is truly a shot in the dark...but is anyone interested in trading over a Jetsmunt VT-80 in exchange for a pristine five flight new Jet Central Rabbit 100? I just don't need 23 pounds of thrust in a 17 pound jet. The VT-80 would be a much better fit for my tiny aircraft. The Rabbit literally has five flights on it. If I can't find a trade then I will list it in the classified but that won't happen till later.

PM me if you are interested.

Just limit the top end. Problem solved. It is easier on the engine to limit rpm to get 18 lbs of thrust than it is to run wide open and get 18 lbs of thrust. Fuel consumption drops, rpm drops, temperature drops. Its win win to keep the Rabbit.

I saw this combo fly in Princeton. It's not the top end thrust that's the problem, but the low end residual thrust. A smaller turbine will have less idle thrust and make it easier to bring this bird in. Unfortunately, there's no way to adjust that. Minimum idle just is.
