J.E.T Cobra

James Engineering Turbines Ltd (J.E.T)

The Cobra turbojet was designed by D. James and J. Walls and built by James Engineering Turbines Ltd (J.E. T). Originally it was not an engine intended to propel an airplane, but its performances were so interesting that it was chosen to equip Yves Duval's MC15J cricket. It will be used after on many radio controlled models.

It ceased to be produced in 2004
