Interne kraftstoffpumpe? interesting and very cool... the installation should be super simple and clean.

The P90RXi is the same case as P80/P120/P140/P180 etc (ie larger than P100RX)

Not a big fan of that many internal components.

RE: Jetcat P90-RXi
 
So it is the same as the p-140 RX? which is much bigger than the P100-RX.

Supposing it is out of warranty, nothing that a screwdriver and a hammer canĀ“t open and fix.. ;)

Looks like it uses the old style compressor wheel?

seems KKK2038 from kj66 and another similar engine...

That is why people tend to call that brand CopyCat ;)

Mmm like so many who have the identical starter motor pod to JetCat :eek:
Cars with engines inside...and four wheels and Hoovers that suck up cr*p ?

it will be great untill you get a problem with it then you are at the mercy of the black hole that is the jet cat repair service

Hi

We have been watching in the last few years, from many manufacturers and JC in particular, to the following features:

1-Internal kerostart
2-Internal solenoid valves
3-Internal ECU (not in JC)
4-Internal pump

What will be next internal? will they make a turbine with internal landing gear and airplane???[&:]

Also another comun feature is the machined compressor.

Of course it is great to make an easy install, but in the end if you have an internal kero plug damaged or a damaged valve, the turbine will have to be shipped for the manufaturer to solve a simple problem. Is this a good thing? I don't believe so....

Service is a profit center and manufacturers think they will protect theirselves with these features.

The same for machined compressors-you will never be able to buy a compressor if it is damaged. Burn plug? Sticky valve? Frozen pump? Return it for service...wait and pay big bucks.

All in all, I feel that I want to stick with old fashion. Am I alone with these thoughts?

Regards

Nuno

Not at all. I want serviceable items to remain external. Don't mind internal solenoid though, as long as I can bypass them if necessary.
What's next? I'd like to see a power inverter that provides power to the model, so that batteries would only be needed as backup and for start up.

To respond this, I would like to see and photo of the 90 RXi without the front cover.

I'm pretty certain that there is still the well known valves and other stuff, but well packaged inside the cover with minimum and rigid tube, with minimum cables.

That's a step beyond in a simple idiot proof installation, with only few feets of single tube between hopper tank and turbine, and only two cables to receiver + power. I've asked myself so much question when receiving my JC P160SX ! There is too much cables and festo links in my plane ! ;)

Well, that's done with the JC P300 and P400 with the generator option... :D[8D]

Next step will be integrated ECU... That's the last external part !

I think it will be interesting to start a thread with this.....

RE: Jetcat P90-RXi
 
So we haven't seen the engine with the front cover off and we are already saying that it will be an expensive pain to service? How about we wait for some more information and pictures of the 90rxi before we pass judgement.

In 5 years from now, most of us won't buy a turbine unless it has everything internal.

Jetcat have the P90 RXI listed on their website as 1950 Euros.
