Compressor and bearings from Germany.
Most parts produced by a famous turbine factory.
Quality guaranteed!

Which "famous turbine factory Anthony?

It'll be great if this is a good quality product but unfortunately, JetJoe has really soured many people's taste for Chinese-sourced turbine engines.

Price will also be an issue.  When you're laying down more than $1K for an item, lots of folks (once burnt, twice shy) might think it makes sense to go with a known quantity -- rather than take a risk just to save a few bucks.

Of course if you want one tested and demonstrated just drop me a line -- RC turbine model videos are my specialty :-)

Good luck with this though, if it's a reasonable quality engine at a good price it could help lift the levels of participation in RC jet modeling and that's a good thing.

There are three very famous (EURO, US) brands that are produced in China. Telling you which ones would be like shooting myself in the face.
 
Hold the cynicism until they're released. Then let fly.
 
Our target price is at around 60% of current US pricing for Mexican units.
