Conversion kits

Ducted Fan to Turbine

If you happen to have one of our IC Ducted Fan jet models (or kits), you can easily upgrade the jet to Turbine power with one of our Turbine conversion kits. All conversion kits come complete with stainless steel tailpipe, CNC cut wood parts, complete fuel tank system, instructions and full size plan (except Rafale A).

 

PA131A F-15 DF to Turbine conversion kit

The conversion kit for the F-15 is special in the sense that it contains a complete new set of ducting: intake liners, turbine bypass and stainless steel bifurcated tailpipe. The new intake liners are specially matched to the bypass and also capture less air (Turbine requires less air than DF). Removing the old DF intake liners is easier than you may think: cut the old liners loose with a DREMEL and cut-off wheel 15 to 20 mm inside the intake circumference. Remove the liners from the inside. Make a perpendicular cut in the remaining liner inside the intake lip. Peel off this 15 to 20 mm strip and you're done. The rest of the conversion is straightforward. Further included are the complete fuel tank system, some CNC cut wood parts to install the optional Spring Air #402 retracts, ceramic felt insulation for the tailpipe, the complete Turbine version instructions and a full size plan.

Note: we recommend a max thrust of 100 N (22 lbs) of thrust when converting a DF F-15.

Please specify type of Turbine you wish to install when ordering.
