My new PHT2 arrived yesterday. What a little jewel it is.I cant stop stroking it

Thats it with a servo thrown in to give you an idea how small it is

Neat little clutch and one way bearing arrangement links the drive and the starter/charger

Toothed belt links the charger/starter and note the shaft coming out of the bottom if you wanted to fit this baby in the other way round

starter/generator for on board lipo. room for 4 servos but 4 servo ccpm wont work

Thats the noisy end and the kerostart system it comes with

Tail rotor driveshafts out of each end, nice and low to clear exhausts

Floor to top of the bearing block is 8" so I am looking at lots of different options on which fuse its going into. I really would like to get it into one of the Century/Funkey or Raptor or Align pre painted fuselages as it would be such a simple build it could introduce a lot more people into the magical world of scale turbine helis. It wants to run upto 1600 rpm I believe which would make it perfect for 700mm blades.

What we need now is a good source of turbine exhausts which can be used.

I am thinking a nice 230 or 430 with the correct exhaust position and a Y pipe on the turbine coming out through them.

I'm like a kid with a new toy. I think I'll go and stroke it some more

Very nice indeed! would be nice to have that little package in kit form, seems strange but that would appeal to me even more.

Hi Peter,

Its a beauty i have seen it last week in Germany on a fair and it was great to see it.
This mechanics and turbine are of course great for the 160-180cm scales, hope to see soon some of these ones in action.

Good luck look forward to see the progress of you scale heli.

very nice.I've always associated turbines with larger fuselages,but this in a 60 size fuse has got me thinking.What are the PHT 2 going for?

I understand the RRP is $3850. I would imagine that would come down some especially if you were to buy it with a scale fuse.

Hi Peter,
Did you say it has a generator? As in an electrical generator? Or are you talking about the gas generator?

I like this and the price appears to be reasonable.

Never mind I just saw the picture with the giant cylinder strapped to the side and labeled in giant letters "GENERATOR" that is too cool...

So does this generator provide electrical power for the ECU and pump only or can it recharge your onboard batteries?

I think with that size generator you could power your house!

A problem found!!

Peter,

Here is a problem looking for a solution!! I know it will fit and with a small Y pipe in the back a perfect scale exhaust outlet.

Send up your PHT2 and I'll do all the work of putting it in and test flying!!!

Hmmmm, I wonder what size generator this little guy can spin if that's all it was for? I'm thinking about a hybrid XLC.

Turbinator Thats one of the applications I am seriously considering. Can I get it in a Funkey 222 pre painted fuse? Turbine scale in hours not months!

DKTek Jakadofsky is actually developing a turbine powered generator, aimed at 3rd world areas cos it can be made to run on just about any old fuel. Turn up at the field and charge your Trex 450 from a turbine powered generator!! Too cool.

If Funkey fuse is same size as vario fuse I do not see why it would not fit. In My mock up putting the PHT2 in VArio 222 fuse it had plenty of room in side the fuse, perfect location for a quick, simple exhaust too. If you sent me all the bits I would be happy to do all the work and test fly it for you, to me that is my favorite part, make them ready to fly, get them perfect and ready to paint, then I seem to loose interest in just flying them for some reason and have to start another before painting the one I just completed, a Funkey prepainted would be right up my alley!!!

I heard of your electric mishap, bummer, glad to hear it was not worse then it could have been. Reminds me of when my turbine ec135 resonanted when I was holding onto the tail and it almost ate me, that could have killed me with out question, dumb place to be on my part. I think we all get used to our models and down play how dangerous they can be and how much and how quick they can get out of hand and the injuries they can inflict. Sucks you got bit, Hope you are doing well and recover quickly.

Let me know on the funkey, just finished my 230 and need another project but can't afford or need another of my own!!

The pht2 is some very nice engineering, I like how compact it is but could prove to be a nightmare when trying to fix/replace those pieces on the internal of the frame sides. I was wondering though on the startbox, are the cooling fins needed or just a little showing off of the new design?
