Default KingTech G4 Engines!

Just in time for my twin purchase!

Integrated FOD screens, Brushless motors all around, ECU inside the turbine, etc.... Not to mention, you will see Barry flying, a WHOLE bunch, everywhere, service in California and with every engine purchase I've made, kingtech throws in some of their oil....

I'm excited! So who is flying them? Whadaya think about them?

I had some K85G2's in a small A-10 and they were like jewelry. And they had a mechanical sound that complimented their turbine sound too!

These look like another great offering from Kingtech. Nice!

Any pics of some of the accessories? Namely, the data relay module?

I do believe the G2 and up fuel pumps were brushless. I’m pretty sure my G2’s were brushless, but I’ve been wrong before.

When you say "ECU in the turbine" do you mean there is no box whatsoever outside of the turbine? Or do you mean it has a TCU to run the starter, gas valves, etc.?

There’s a DRM instead of the ECU outside......data relay module....the ecu is under the motor cover...

Interesting. I run swiwin, which has always had a TCU, but the ECU still controls the pump, and relays data from the TCU as well as provides telemetry.

By what I’ve seen the new 180 has had a major change in size and max rpm.

I got a text from Fed-Ex saying to expect a shipment from Pasadena today.

Ordered on 5/15 and showing up at my house on 5/17.

If that package are my engines, 2 days to my house is more than reasonable shipping time.
