Cool New Kingtech K70 shes tiny with power

We will be showing a new Kingtech K70 engine at Kentucky jets in a few weeks and she will be installed in the all new Mini T1.

The new K70 will be the size and weight of the K45.... yes that is right the tiny K45. I dont have all the specs on it yet just know size weight and its power. Allot have been asking for smaller stuff that easy to transport so here it is.

This engine will be available no sooner then late August but it is in the works. Stay tuned for more info and come see it in person at KYjets.

Hows the 80 in one of those Kris? I like a little extra power up here at 5000'

when the K45 first came out I built a JHH A7 for Barry with the k45 when it first came out and it was like a guided missile very fast. So it should work just be careful with the extra power.

The fuel burn rate is one figure I would want to see, but otherwise, at least it should be available soon for all those who have been stuck waiting for the M70....

gonna redefine what a P70 size jet means

thanks

The problem is that I usually have to land and stop on a 300 ft strip with unforgiving run-off. Often I have to wave off the approach if it's not perfect and a 70N engine would develop the needed thrust quicker than a 45.

I really think this engine and the M70 could be game changers for those that like smaller jets. With the power to weight ratio of these engines it opens up some possibilities to get better than 1-1 thrust to weight ratios on the 13-15 pound jets. The planes intended for 60's get a power boost and a weight decrease. I suspect there will be some planes blown apart as well but that is not the engine manufacturers fault. Now if only a reasonably priced manufacturer with good service would compete with the Kolibri then the jet world would be even better.

I got a Super Viper with another small engine. It got power to just hover. Take off and landing are insane at only 5kg of weight with full fuel. Like 30ft start/stop. Must do a video one day... Larger planes built light are really awesome things to play around with. I welcome this engine and I might get one too for my PAF Salamander.
