Rotron RT600 LCR EXE 1000hrs TBO Rotary UAV Engine

ROTRON RT600LCR-EXE

SUITABLE FOR UAVS REQUIRING 1000HRS TBO

The Rotron RT600 LCR-EXE rotary engine is shaping a new generation of tier 2 class UAV engines, setting industry leading standards in weight, power and size, as well as operating economics. This compact, twin rotor engine delivers maximum mission-ready availability and bottom-line value, allowing operators to fly longer with superior performance.

  • 1000 Hours TBO high endurance capability
  • High power-to-weight ratio with increased efficiency
  • Small engine size allows greater fuel and payload flexibility for multi-mission capability
  • Low levels of torsional vibration and zero radial vibration at mid-to-high rpm range
  • Fuel injection and ECU controlled altitude compensation fitted as standard
  • Available in pusher or tractor (puller) configurations, with either direct or reduction drive
