I just saw this engine at an electronics magazine site. Not the magazine that hosts my blog. But good is good. Note that JP8 is more or less diesel fuel. And check of the size of that 5KW generator. And 2HP per pound? That is very good. I’d like to see one running with a full up cooling system.

The Company doing the work

A short video (about a minute and a half) from two years ago showing more details of the engine with a model (not that kind) that makes things clearer.

If you want to look deeper it is a Meyer Nutating Disk Engine or Kinetic BEI’s Nutating Engine. Have fun. Learn something.
