There was one up here in Scotland but I'm pretty sure the owner sold it before flying it...or maybe he couldn't sell it I'm not sure.

The only other one I've ever seen was an old Italian Masterfly kit. It was originally a d/f kit but there are a few turbine conversions. It's a rare beastie though.

I looked into this model 4-5 years ago, and managed to get in touch with a guy in the UK who had one of the early ones. (Probably one of the only ones)
I've searched my inboxes but can't find his name or reply, but the gist of the reply was that it was a led sled, and not much fun to fly. I think he'd hung the model up while trying to decide what to do with it.
Sorry that's not more positive, if I find the email from him, I'll alert him to your thread here.
