JAKADOFSKY has broken ground into a new class of turbine engine. This 10kW or 14HP
engine delivers double the power output over the Pro5000, but is only 25% larger in size. This
engine is tasked as a power plant and for large turbine helicopters that can carry a payload
in both model and industrial applications. Building on their patented turboshaft design, the
PRO-X will again provide a perfect platform for helicopters.

JAKADOFSKY has continued to refine and develop small turbine
engines with the popular Starwood, PRO and PRO5000 series. The PRO-X
engine now takes this technology one step further as demand in industrial
applications and UAVs is growing. It exclusively uses Kerosene to
start the engine eliminating the Propane/Butane requirement completely.
The PRO-X in UAV configuration (Unmanned Aerial Vehicle) has applications in large
3 meter helicopters and turbo-prop aircraft. The turbine incorporates an onboard electric starter which
also serves as an inflight generator capable of providing 13.6V in nominal voltage with a maximum
current capacity of 10Amps. An optional charging module is currently under development which will
recharge the onboard starting battery automatically. The PRO-X turbine uses the standard oil-Kerosene
fuel (same as the PRO series) and is lubricated from the oil component.
JAKADOFSKY engines operate more efficiently as the PRO ECU (electronic control unit) only needs to regulate
the engine speed 2-4K to cover all flying maneuvers. This intrinsic design avoids large engine RPM changes
to control the output. The engine also comes equipped with an intake screen to avoid FOD (foreign object damage)
that prevents debris from entering the engine which could severely damage the internal engine components.
The PRO-X has improved its internal starter design by moving the electric starter from the turbine's main
drive shaft to the engine's output shaft. The brushless starter motor now serves two roles: turbine engine start
and onboard generator.

We have been asked several times for the key dimensions on the JAKADOFSKY turbine engine and JAKADOFSKY has provided the
following two technical drawings with dimensions in millimeters. These are exact and can be easily used to determine how a
JAKADOFSKY turbine can be installed in your model project.|
