This is essentially a brand new engine with little more than bench and some test run time on it! It is EXACTLY THE SAME ENGINE, parts & warranty that you will otherwise pay Chad Russell, EvoJet's North American distributor, $3495.00 for! Why not save yourself $500 right now, guaranteed?
Fewer than 35 minutes of total run time on it. I own two other JetCats and prefer to go with one brand so I can interchange accessories, etc.
HERE IS WHAT EVOJET HAS TO SAY:
All new design with a forged, milled aluminum compressor, redesigned burn can, and upgraded electronics. The best just got better.
evoJet engines feature an electric starter motor (Japanese Sagami) and a brand new electric 12V kerosene burner (SFL12V) kero start system, the first in the industry!This provides full engine startup control from the R/C transmitter, without the missed starts due to the element not being hot enough. Also, no more dangerous propane gas needed. All evoJet turbines use a unique Single Fuel Line starting system. That's right, only ONE line goes from the pump/valves to the turbine. No need for a second fuel line or a propane line. Talk about simple!
All electronic processes are monitored by the JETRONIC-Vx Engine Control Unit, which constantly sets all the operating parameters to their optimum values. All of the auxiliary electrical components, i.e. fuel pump, kerosene igniter, starter, valve etc., are powered by a lightweight lithium-manganese battery, or a 4 cell A123 4S1P battery (optional).
The latest precision CNC and laser technologies are employed to obtain an unprecedented level of manufacturing precision, guaranteeing that your turbine will provide extremely high performance for a long and effective lifetime.
Every evoJet turbine also includes a display and pro-gramming unit (Engine Data Terminal) featuring an illuminated alpha-numeric LCD; it can be plugged in and disconnected when the engine is running, so that you can read the current operational data and adjust the settings if necessary.
In addition to the momentary operational data such as exhaust gas temperature (EGT), rotational speed (rpm) and thrust (Throttle), the unit is also able to display statistical data including total turbine running time, rotational speed, temperature statistics, number of starts, battery voltage, and even total turbine wheel revolutions, etc.
With all of the evoLogic technology stored ON the motor, you can swap an engine from one plane to another, in just 5 minutes, without having to move the ECU or fuel pump (extra installation kit needed).
Oh, did we mention the engine now carries a LIFETIME WARRANTY**!!
