The original engine is patented and the Company (Axial Vector Energy) has now made patent applications and received patent pending status for additional features that have been refined. Activity and contacts from the website indicate that there are a lot of buyers for this new engine technology.
The first production engine has been assembled and completed initial testing. The Company has had to design and build a custom dynamometer on which to complete engine testing. After testing has been completed on the first engine, it was installed in an aircraft like a Cessna 182 or a Piper Cherokee that will be able to demonstrate the engine's performance capability.
Additional installations are being discussed with owners of several experimental homebuilt aircraft, including, a LancAir, an RV6, a custom designed pusher fashioned after the Long Easy, a new designed homebuilt called the Atlantica, and several others, including a Sea Bee, a Seawind homebuilt, and possibly a Cessna 185.
The initial Dyna-Cam Engine to be manufactured and sold is rated at 200 HP. The engine is 13" in diameter, 40" long and weighs 300 pounds with basic accessories. It has unique features and major benefits over conventional engines of similar weight and power. The benefits include lower manufacturing costs in equal production, 50% smaller size, 50% fewer replacement parts, better fuel economy, smoother operation, lighter weight, plus nearly 100% higher torque enabling the engine to turn high efficiency propellers with lower noise output.
