Do turbines spit out a lot of junk like glow engines do?

Can a karo start turbine run on diesel or does it have to be a propane starter in order to work with diesel?
Gentlemen!
There are forums with much more info on turbines than rcg. I suggest you search and read a little...

All new turbines today are offered with kero start. This replaces the propane in the startup procedure. Now you more or less just flip a switch and the ECU does the rest. Just as easy as starting an outrunner

Hmmm... I guess I know, I started this thread...

What I ment was if you want general info on turbines, this is not the best foprum to find info - and that's a fact

BTW the "RCG Turbines forum" is not sponsored by HK, they advertise here, and a lot of other places.
When and if new info occurs, it's nice if people share

RAINING SEASON!?!?!? What a pure load of crap!! Go back to the videos I posted people.. Just LOOK at the size of garage he has and he built a Cruise missile in it!! I wonder if he only worked on it when it was warm and sunny

Im sorry people..But as much as I LOVE HK...there is something very seriously wrong with this engine..

How long since Bruce got it?...5 WEEKS now and he hasnt even started it??

I know a guy just down the road that flys every winter with his turbine. Could be minus 15c and he's out there flying it. Starts first time Everytime.

This engine is a flop. They would be better off canceling the entire project before they embarrass them selfs any further.

HK has all the resources they need to get this turbine spinning. Obviously they also got plenty of time. They will never make much money on this project anyway, since sales if turbines never will reach the volume they sell of other items...
Be patient guys.

Why don't you calm down and be patient? Bruce lost his flying field so he has much more important things on his mind other then listening to your whining...

Hey! I seriously dont think he's listening to me.

Sucks loosing your field.. I know..cause Im going through the same thing right now! Funny thing about loosing a field is...It gives plenty of time to do other things, like Run a Turbine engine perhaps!?

Nobody is asking him to fly the damn thing..ARE WE? Just run the engine Run the engine Run the engine.

I would say 5 weeks to start an engine has exhausted all of my patients.

Cant run an engine that wont start I geuss. Damn shame cause I was hoping it would work.

Reading some of the other forum threads on this issue, the rumours says it's going to be on sale in February...
