Cubewano announces pre-release of its Sonic30 heavy fuel UAV engine

Sonic30 heavy fuel UAV engine

from http://www.cubewano.com/

Cubewano Limited, a UK company, have announced the release of its first heavy fuel UAV engine. The engine, a 5 hp air-cooled rotary engine, incorporates advanced materials and technology and has a bespoke fuel injection system. This advance release enables airframe manufacturers to evaluate and package the engine, with a view to production models being available in 3-6 months time.

Birmingham, UK April 2, 2008 -- Cubewano announce the release of the pre production development version of its 5 hp heavy fuel engine. The engine is a lightweight, fuel injected, 5 hp, air cooled, single rotor internal combustion engine of the Wankel rotary type.

After many months in development Cubewano are finally happy with the performance of their 5 hp engine to release it for sale. The engine in many respects advances the technology of the Wankel rotary engine by utilising advanced materials including ceramics and specialist coatings to achieve an extremely lightweight 1.5 kg engine.

Cubewano director Craig Fletcher states: “We were convinced that the spark ignition rotary engine was the way to go for small heavy fuel applications but finding small enough fuel injection systems to work under these conditions proved very difficult”. Cubewano have developed their own proprietary ECU system for this application which includes a MAP (Manifold Air Pressure) sensor for automatic altitude compensation.

The engine is designed to use a recirculating oil system and a lightweight ECU, about the size of a matchbox. However, for development purposes, Cubewano have been using a full size ECU and pre mix lubrication. The decision to release the pre-production version is to enable airframe manufacturers to get a head start testing and packaging the Cubewano engine.
