[Sky Power] The product portfolio of German UAV engine manufacturer Sky Power GmbH is now also available online. The propulsion systems, spare parts and consumables will be available for purchase via a newly established online store operated by 3W-International GmbH.

“In addition to our standard product portfolio, we will also offer special products via the online store, such as special offers,” says Karsten Schudt, managing director of Sky Power GmbH. In addition to the entire engine range, all consumables, and additional items, such as spark plugs, air filters or control units, are also available online. The engines can be selected in a standard configuration, but individual parameters can also be configured. In some cases, for example, the alternators or starter generators as well as the exhaust systems can be selected for individual engine families.

Schudt continues: “It is clear to us, of course, that large companies and existing customers will continue to purchase engines from us via traditional purchasing. But with our online store, we also want to appeal to companies that want to buy an engine in a quick, uncomplicated way. We have noticed, especially with startups and UAV developers, that a simple, quick purchase of motors, without much consultation, is of interest, since in many cases motors are also purchased here to perform basic tests with newly developed UAV solutions. For the further, next development steps, these companies then often approach us for additional consulting or to order individually configured motor systems.”

The SP-55 FI TS hybrid with integrated generator e.g. is designed to generate electricity in unmanned flight systems. The engine has twin spark plugs and is equipped with a fuel injection. The injection, control and temperature control as well as the air supply are located on the side of the engine. The generator is mounted on the rear output shaft. The rear output shaft and the position of the fuel injection on the side, make this engine one of the most compact 1-cylinder engines on the market. The hybrid system generates a maximum power of 2 kW at 50 V DC.

Sky Power GmbH is a leading manufacturer of 2-stroke combustion- and Wankel-engines for UAS (Unmanned Aerial Systems) and hybrid applications. Besides in-house development and manufacturing, Sky Power produces all engines in Germany. Custom adaptations, new developments and continuous performance improvements of the combustion engines are ongoing company objectives.
