APS Fuel Pump PowerFuel RX - the programmable and TX switchable pump
Our APS fuel pumps are only available in combination with the purchase of a new engine from us, or if the engine was purchased through Aeroscale in the past for which you now need an APS pump. Please provide the engine’s serial number if that is the case.
Programmable fuel pump for all Walbro outfitted motors.
The RX version allows you to switch the pump off and on from your transmitter, great for further killswitch functionality and important at times as these tight gearpumps can not run dry for too long before taking damage.
This pump requires on open channel on your RX, can then be activated from your transmitter, can be RPM adjusted and mixed to your throttle stick position.
Dr. Götz Vogelsang brought these pumps with him from Germany and the US scene has taken note ever since.
The APS Fuel-pump is a high quality accessory for your valuable model aircraft. Any gas-powered 4-stroke engine can gain tremendously from this powerhouse. If you experience problems with your motor in midair, if your engine suddenly leans out or quits, if you cannot even seem to get it to run rich on the ground to begin with, this pump might be the solution. This fuel-pump is maintenance-free and very durable. The main part of the fuel-pump is a high quality and reliable gearpump not suitable for Methanol.
The problem with radial design is that miniature radials rely on an artificial air impulse to drive the Walbro. Experience has shown that these APS pumps act as a life saver should the radial cease to be able to supply the necessary impulse. From over a decade of experience this situation seems to be “when:” and not “if”.
On all other gas engines, the 4-stroke engines included, the danger of residue oil blocking the impulse line to the Walbro is ever-present.
Our latest model pump is fully programmable, meaning that you can switch it not only on and off from your transmitter, you can set the RPM across the throttle channel, hence lessen the load and increase both battery and pump life.
Fuel pump with integrated self-purging, passive cut-off valve and enhanced pump motor. The cut-off valve and the exhaust valve of the pump are integrated into the pump head. This pump primes on its own.
