Wren 44 Turbines and Multi Rotors

Posted 02-26-2012 at 06:28 AM by lperagallo

It's been a long time since my last blog generally because there hasn't been much excitement going on.
This fall WREN turbines announced Kero start for their Wren 44 turbine. Ron Ballard of Wren USA invited Chris Bergen and me to his shop in Decatur Indiana to be the first to convert our Wren 44 helicopter turbines. Needless to say I jumped on the chance. It is a relatively simple conversion and it works sweet. It does cost a bit as you need to change out the FADEC, fuel pump and install the Kero burner. The nice thing is leaving the Powermax home. No need to carry on-board propane. Removing the propane does improve safety and lessens the possibility of a fire during a crash.

It works well in temperatures down to 35 degrees F although I did have to cycle it twice to get it to start. No big deal.

The helis flies the same and is so much simpler.

One other thing before I leave you. I have embarked on a new business. I am now selling Multi Rotor components. DJI Controllers, DJI Frames, DJI Parts, Avroto motors Maytech ESCs and APC props. Drop by the store at www.hobby-drones.com and browse our selection.

In the coming months, the store will be expanded and we will begin to carry Helicopter kits and parts. Check back and see what we will be offering.
