The new robust 2-shaft helicopter mechanics SPT-HMS ("S" = short) and SPT-HML ("L"= long) were specially developed for model helicopters with a high take-off weight.
The side plates, struts and bearing blocks are made of aluminium, the side plate spacing is 60mm and gives the mechanics a high torsional stiffness. The arrangement of the 2-shaft turbine in the SPT-HML is shifted forward by 85mm, this arrangement is characterised by an improved centre of gravity position, e.g. in industrial helicopter applications. On so-called industrial helicopters, the tail boom is usually realised with an aluminium or CFRP tube, and can be attached to the mechanics using an optionally available tail boom bracket. The high-quality, ground gear ratios guarantee reliable power transmission to the main and tail rotor. The 2-shaft turbine (SPT5-H or SPT10-RX) is integrated into the mechanics via a large claw coupling. The drive power is then transmitted via a solid toothed belt stage to the ring gear, which is made of special steel. The input and output bevel gears have been adapted according to the latest findings. The autorotation freewheel is integrated in the output belt wheel. The tail rotor is either driven directly by the ring gear (rotating tail rotor during AR landing) or via a special tail transmission (tail rotor standstill during AR landing). The special tail gear ratio is directly driven by the turbine, in this configuration optimum tail rotor speeds can be achieved.
For the use of FENESTRON tail rotors, e.g. EC 145 T2, an adapted gear ratio can be installed. The main rotor speed can also be optimally adjusted. This allows main rotors from 2.0m to 2.6m to be driven powerfully. The direction of rotation of the main rotor can of course be freely selected. A centrifugal clutch has been dispensed with, as there is no mechanical connection between the core turbine and the power turbine in 2-shaft turbines.
Model helicopters with a large take-off weight load the main rotor shaft with a high "mast torque". Therefore you can choose between a 12mm or 15mm main rotor shaft depending on the model helicopter weight. Furthermore, the "mast torque" can be positively influenced with various available dome extensions.
The system speed of the helicopter should always be kept constant during flight, a throttle curve is not necessary with the JetCat-ECU control. A Hall sensor measures the transmission output speed. The respective transmission ratios are freely programmable in the ECU (gear output to main rotor, main rotor to tail rotor). The user can program the desired main rotor speed directly, the rest is done by the ECU software.
