Sky Power has kicked off 2019 with the release of its second newly-developed 2-stroke engine.

The German-based manufacturer of 2-stroke combustion and Wankel engines for UAS has based the new SP-210 FI TS on the same design concept as its previous model, the SP-110 FI TS.

The new release comes with max. 8,2 kW at 5000 rpm and has a system carrier mounted above the cylinders with the two electronic systems of the HKZ215 ignition and also the engine injection system.

All data lines of the sensors, which gather engine data at a variety of measuring points and transmit these to the ECU030, are bundled on the system carrier.

In the event of faults the system carrier can be completely dismantled, together with the injection system allowing for a new system carrier with all modules and data cables to be fitted.

Discussing the new release, CEO of Sky Power, Karl Schudt, said: “The engine is extremely user- and maintenance friendly. Just like with the SP-110 FI TS, our theoretical calculations proved to be true. The dynamometer tests verified the fuel requirement specified by us. At 5000 rpm this is about 480 gr/HP/hour. Consequently, with this engine we will also satisfy the demands of our customers, who are searching for efficient and fuel-saving drive solutions.”

The SP-210 FI TS is available as petrol engine, with the company confirming that a heavy fuel variant will follow in the middle of 2019.
