Smart engine break-in system

The new Smart engine brake-in system allows automated engine breaking-in for easier and faster preparation of new nitro engines. The engine will be fixed in the device whose sensors will monitor and control parameters such as RPM, temperature, load and more in order to provide a safe and convenient break-in process without having to dismantle the engine. A glow plug igniter, heater, cooling fan as well as as stater are all incorporated into the unit as is a special TDC function that prevents the system from stopping the engine on the top dead centre which can harm the piston and liner. Instead the unit will ensure the engine will be kept at the bottom dead centre before the start and after the operation, ensuring prolonged parts life. The break-in process is widely customisable in terms of RPM, temperature, load and throttle curve and it can also be monitored using an optional WiFi module and a mobile device.
