Gas Turbine ECU/Fadec

Post by hobbysteam » Wed Oct 28, 2020 12:48 pm

I'm not sure if this request belongs here but here goes. Has anyone out there successfully assembled an ECU for a small gas turbine using Arduino UNO 3 or Mega boards and got it to where it is a useful engine controller. I have sourced my converter boards for the Hall tach, the K type EGT and the pressure transducer but I could use all the help I can get. If anyone wants to chime in here it would be much appreciated!

U might have better luck with this question on an R/C Airplane forum. I have worked on the full sized equipment but only have very limited exposure to smaller/model sized engines. The one's I saw utilized fuel pressure to change engine speed. The controller was a purchased item for operating the engine and was tied into the transmitter box for the flight controls.
