We announce increase of service interval to 50 hours. Based on flawless operational experiences and analyses we decided for this step. We believe this will be greatly appreciated by current and new users of our robust engines. For details see technical note TN16-02. Also checkout our service information.

Lets meet with us at Jet Power 2016!
Look at wonderfull 3D animation of our H16 engine 😎 >>
Special thanks to Stan for a Great job!
We prepared for you a simple to use Engine Deck. Using this program you can calculate engine trhust under different ambient condition. It may also be used for engines of different brands. Go to Downloads section to get the program.
This year we again presented our engine at Jet Power Messe, sharing stand with Vasa Model company.
It was great event and we are looking for to meet with you again next year.
We have been asked couple times why the H16 engine has so high Exhaust Gas Temperature (EGT).
The explanation is very simple and was also described in the H16 engine review in RC Jet International April/May 2015 issue.
The H16 engine unlike others has temperature probe positioned infront of the turbine, thus measures approx 150°C (at full power) higher temperature than if placed behind the turbine due to temperature drop in the turbine stage. Typicaly the H16 max EGT is around 680°C and is precisely measured during each engine release test using 4 circumferentialy displaced external probes. Based on this measurement the engine temperature limit is calculated and set in the Engine Control Unit.
To wrap it up, there are no user drawbacks of this approach and it is fully equal to EGT measurement.
Big milestone has been achieved. Our H16 engine dedicated for accelerated cycling test has logged 60 hours and allmost 800 starts in our ground test cell. (allmost 1000 litres of JetA1 🙂 )
Engine is tortured by computer controlled short time intensive test runs to prove low cycle fatigue life and also by stair step tests to prove high cycle fatigue life.
The engine is still in perfect condition and we continue… 🙂
We are preparing now a diesel fuel test on the same engine.
