JetCat P180-NX

JetCat P180-NX 39.34lbs Thrust RC Turbine Engine, with Generator and Brushless Pump

JetCat NX turbines:

The next Generation: The newly developed JetCat P180-NX, P220-RXi, features a brushless, fully enclosed, fuel pump and a brushless starter / generator system! The rotor of the fuel pump runs in the fuel, this can be dispensed with the otherwise necessary shaft seals. The starter / generator works completely non-contact to the turbine shaft. Thus, the “clutch” of starter to turbine shaft is resistant to all conceivable dirt (no slippage of the starter clutch by eg contamination or O-ring wear possible).

The specially developed non-contact coupling system also ensures that the brushless generator, unlike the turbine shaft, only runs at very low speeds (well below 10,000 rpm). This ensures a very high reliability as well as longevity of the entire starter / generator system.

Furthermore, the JetCat P220-RXi has been optimized to a minimum system weight. The laser-welded housing is made of thin-walled stainless steel. The entire turbine including integrated brushless pump, valves, fuel filter and generator and charging system weighs just 1850g. As a result, this drive is also ideal for large models (compliance with the maximum take-off mass). In conjunction with the JetCat BMS system also much smaller and thus lighter receiver batteries can be used as previously required, as well as the receiver batteries in flight from the BMS system constantly recharged become.

The front of the P180-NX / P220-RXi turbine also features the integrated all-metal fuel distribution system with fuel filter and electromagnetic shut-off valves. This Krafstoffverteilsystem is milled from the solid and comes without any possibly faulty hose connections / fittings, etc. from.

After starting the turbine, the connected turbine battery is recharged via the generator with high power. The integrated electronics on the turbine controls the charging current as well as voltage fully automatically. The turbine battery is also charged while idling the turbine. Suitable receiver batteries can also be charged via the optional BMS system.
