    Bad camera work, sloppy flying, terrible editing, and about the only thing that "could" be used from a turbo is the compressor wheel. But it's not used. In fact, every ~$3500 turbine engine is hand crafted from purpose- designed parts. No truck turbo jet engines here.

    i think you have to build them your self. i can only find propeller planes that are sold commercially.
