I have posted this earlier, but one litre would be good for at least 10 minutes, due to the low weight/high thrust ratio with this combination. I don't use brakes, not needed or required over here,...

I own both the X45 and the P20 internal kero start and I can tell you that the X45 is marginally lighter. According to RC Jet International, total installed weight of the X45 is 544 grams, versus the...

That's about the weight of my Avanti with the X45, so some other installs maybe use heavy brake and undercarriage assemblies, plus a heavy dual wall pipe. Some have gone over 5kgs, so just goes to...

Yeah, I know, but approaching retirement now and selling off older engines offsets the cost, so when I do pull the pin, I will have plenty of toys to keep me happy! Plus the Australian agent love...

You will love it!! The JP retracts look very good quality but possibly a little heavy, but you will have so much power, a little bit of extra weight won't worry it. I even flew mine with a K45G2 and...

Yes, agree that not alot of difference between P20 and the X45 in weight, but big difference in thrust. I had about 50 flights with my P20 powered Avanti and it flew well, but so much better with a...

Definitely do not use a P20 (30mm) pipe with the X45!! The pipe has to be 45-55 mm to get the performance and a small pipe will run very hot and lose thrust.

This pipe is for a P20/K30 which is what I originally had in my Avanti before I put my K45 big can engine in it. It flew very well with the old K45 but was quite heavy. I then fitted my new X45 into...

Not sure why you had a flameout, but I don't use a trap tank, especially on the micro turbines. They only sip fuel, but I use a Honda felt clunk from a brush cutter, and try to minimize the use...

Hi guys, Iv'e had a few flights with the X45 engine, and it is much nicer to fly with the lighter X45 engine! I think that the jet lost 1.2kgs in TOW for the same engine thrust. Here is a hatcam...

Exactly the same weight and dimensions of the K30, so tail mount. The original big can K45 would not fit in the tail, plus CG may be hard to achieve with the extra mass of that engine.
