Over 1000 customers have proven the reliability of this turbine engine power plant.
Precision ceramic ball bearings for low maintenance operation.
Screen in front of the turbine inlet avoids FOD (foreign object damage) of the compressor / turbine
Special CAD designed turbine wheel, for maximum shaft power at minimum residual thrust
Original JetCat “Jet-tronic” ECU: RPM regulator for constant rotor speed. User programmable electronics.
Turbine starts without compressed air or fans. Automatic cooling when the turbine is shut off.
RS232 serial interface for linking to a computer
Plain text display of the current running parameters for example: exhaust gas temperature, RPM, fuel consumption, remaining fuel, last run time, total run time, battery voltage, turbine condition, last shut-down reason, etc.
Real turbine power with tremendous reserve, capable of powering even the largest helicopters
Rotor direction selectable for either (CW/CCW) rotation
Rotor decoupled from turbine via centrifugal clutch allowing the rotor to stop when the turbine is at idle
Optional servo driven rotor brake
