So he said he would push everything else aside and just get the HK turbine running.. That was 6 WEEKS AGO!!!! I started mine last night after it was instorage for 9months. Charged the batteries put fresh fuel in and fired it up in less than an hour. This guy takes 6 weeks???? and it it still hasnt run. What gives..

bottom line is... they should have given it to a Turbine Jockey and not an engineer.

Most companies wont give out alpha/preproduction info since it it so early in the game, let alone give the world a sneak peek at it so I'll be content enough to wait.

Been reading up on how the Kingtech can run on diesel. Would be interested in if this can use diesel and how much more thrust it creates with it.

Most turbines can run on Jet A1, kerosene and diesel... But the different producers have different recommendations and specifications on the preferred fuel to burn.
The HK turbine, is it a true HK turbine or is it a derivative of some of the established producers? I hope they have paired up with someone who knows what they are doing or less they may not hit the market with this one....

We'll just have to wait and see...

what Ben Said
but since it has a prototype I doubt if it's anlready established product renamed like their other products

but there were rumors that there are many manufacturers that they get their parts from.

The rumor mill suggest that the parts are German and from a well known manufactor..Robbie. Are they assembling the engines for HK? your guess is as good as mine.

Looks like we have a ladybird review and some long awaited first person view backpack videos available now so I guess the weather isn't that great for starting a turbine yet. Hope he goes step by step on how to fuel up, start and operate this beast for turbine newbs like me. If any turbine can run on diesel, then maybe not with this prototype but as they get closer to a production model I wouldn't mind hearing his thoughts on how this turbine runs on different fuels be it diesel, karo, gas or a deadly combination there of. Can a karo start turbine run on diesel or only propane start turbines can run on diesel?

Who is Robbie? Can't find the company on the interweb. Thought the name sounded familiar but I think I'm confusing them with the Robart retract company.

I think you want Robbe.

If you search youtube using the words robbe turbines you get a few videos of them. I cannot find any on robbe website though.

Thanks. I like the blue anodized look that they use. Much better than the pink/purple stuff. We want this thing to be light on the wallet so maybe they should leave out the fancy anodizing on this one.

Hope he goes step by step on how to get this thing running for us turbine newbs.

Can a karo start turbine run on diesel or does it have to be a propane starter in order to work with diesel?
