Default K70 compressor wheel failure.




My K70 with 412mins of runtime gave in yesterday. Compressor blade broke.

Well, that’s disheartening.

I think I'll put mine on the do not fly list until this is sorted out.

Pulled mine out of the plane tonight to inspect, barely a blemish to be seen on any of the blades so that’s good at least. Also noticed in one or two of these pics/comments of the broken engines, the blade with “KT” marking on t was the one that broke. My engine doesn’t have that on any of the blades. I have no idea if that’s actually relevant though.
