Well, it is interesting looking back on this thread after the fact.
To date there are 18 mostly successful flights on the Super Reaper. The TJT has 3 hours and 48 minutes of run time on it. While there were a couple of minor problems preventing starts early in the game, the manufacturer's support was great, and we now have a consistent and very reliable running turbine.
It is rewarding to know that the time and effort we spent during construction to logically place all the components and keep the turbine and servo wires separate. As well, the fuel system has proved faultless (so far).
The building seemed like such a long, long, process, sometimes with not much progress to show for our efforts. Seeing it fly reliably flight after flight makes it all worthwhile!
The sooner you fall behind, the more time you will have to catch up.
