The AIM of Jetbeetle  is to design and build affordable jet engines that move very fast, very safe and very reliable you could really depend on !

Hello!   Welcome to Jetbeetle's official website ! My name is Horace, T.L.Ho, a jet engine designer with many years of experience.  This website is designed as a platform  for sharing information and the general interest into turbine engine, topics including turbojet, turbofan, turboprop, and turboshaft. This website also documents the development of my engine projects. Thanks for visiting and spending some time.

We hope that through this website we could provide different aspects into turbojet engine, including activities of detail design, production, system integration, assembling, testing and tuning, maintenance etc.

Through these years of hard works here is a list of what we have done  :

  • A series of small jet engines, they are H350R / H250 / H220R / H170R / H150 / H110, (check the products page for more details), In which, H350R, H220R and H170R equipped with new two-stage compressors,
  • Some software tools such as CRS (critical rotational speed calculator) and Turbosmith (turbine engine cycle analysis) to aid the design of jet engines, (check download page),
  • We even developed our own double-plane dynamic balancer ARX ! (check the products page for more details), revision comes to V3 2023.
  • A most advanced ECU (engine control unit) in its class, 
  • Developing a big turbojet engine Hornet H700 suitable for missile applications,
  • The groundbreaking Dragonfly HGF500 and Damselfly HGF350 small turbofan families, featuring advanced geared high-bypass ratio technology, are set to redefine experimental aviation. With their imminent arrival, pre-orders are now being accepted. Get in touch with us to secure your reservation.
  • The Recuperated Turboshaft engine DungBeetle HT60R, tailored for ultralight or single-seat helicopters, will soon be operational. Pre-orders are now being accepted.
  • World renowned military aerial target Banshee jet 80+, originally powered by twin 40kg turbojets now the Banshee is powered by a single Jetbeetle H150 with great success. More range can be expected if powered by H170R, one of our compressor reinforced turbojet families.
  • and we still have a lot of things to do !

We have been categorized by the MOEA (Ministry of Economics Affairs) of our government in UAV (Unmanned Aerial Vehicle) sector, check this out : UAS in Taiwan. The upcoming year will be very exciting, with all the new engines and possibilities.
