Default Smaller turbine

Hello,
Do you have any plans in the near future for a turbine in the same size class of a wren44 or jetcat p20?
I'm wanting to pull the trigger but at the same time am willing to wait!

Thanks
Larry

Default RE: Smaller turbine

I've been begging Barry for 2 years now to get us a small turbine. This time last year, he said "a 55 was on the work bench, but the 140 was going to get released first." Well... now they have the 100, 140, 170, 180... and the new "G" series.

Personally... now that I own a Wren 44... I don't want a 55 anymore. They need to release a 35 that weighs a little less than a Wren 44.


SO..............


Barry... PLEASE tell your R&D guys that we want a 35n engine !!!!!!! The P-20 is too small, and the Wren 44 is almost too big for all the new 90mm EDF air-frames that are out there. If you guys released a K-35... you would capture a market that is just waiting to happen.

I have a CMP T-45 with a Wren 44 gold in it. (it was supposed to be a 90mm EDF) I would love it if I could carry a little less fuel, and loose a little weight. Also... I have the 44 turned down to 8 Lbs.


PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE !!!!!!

If all goes well, K-55 will be released early 2013, hopefully January. 35 will be next in the smaller line of engines, the running of prototype will be conducted at a new facility. KingTech is building dedicated factory for producing turbine engines.

That's good and exciting to hear!
Any tentative timing for the 35? If its premature to disclose, I understand

A K35 would be perfect for the typical 90mm airframe.

It sure seems like the entire turbine manufacturing world missed the boat on the 35 with the 90mm edf's being as popular as they are.

If you guys get the 35 out first..you will for sure clean up!

Yes, that's correct, not sure about the size, but should be around a 55

Cheers,

Any news on when and how much?

Also wondering what models this turbine would be good for. Too big for 90mm EDF conversions?

Is there another small engine coming out soon? Looking for something with a bit more poke than the P20 for converting 90size EDFs.
