Philosophy

Reliable, powerful, high quality, affordable engines that can be customized on request have been part of Frank Turbines for more than 2 decades. Our parts were produced in Germany, Austria and Switzerland only. This guarantees the highest level of quality, which is a prerequisite for one of the most powerful engines on the market.
Our engines are well known by hobby pilots as well as competition pilots all over the world.
Frank’s trademark, the carbon fiber front cover and the characteristic scalloped rear cone give the engine additional enhancement in terms of weight, thrust and noise.

All-in-one engine system from turbines to thrust tubes with various options can be obtained from us, we offer the entire concept for your model aligned to your special requirements and needs.
We are a focused on individual solutions, rather than providing a default solution from an assembly line. Our engines are produced in small series by specialists exclusively in Germany and Austria for those model pilots who are convinced of the power, quality, reliability and service of Frank Turbines.
