  • Overview
  • Spare Parts
The PTE36 is the best engine in its class. We ran the PTE36, DLE30 and other engines side by side. We used the same prop, fuel, ambient conditions, spark plug, etc. The PTE36 is the smoothest, most powerful, and easiest to start. The main advantage is that it is rear exhaust! On narrow cowled planes like the P-40, P-51, Spitfire, etc., there’s no cutting a hole through the side of the cowl. You don’t spoil the looks of your plane. I always hate cutting the shark’s mouth out of P-40’s cowl for the side exhaust muffler - what a sin! This engine is awesome. It used a Walbro carb, no imitation! It uses an iridium plug which is better than the NGK-CM6 (though the NGK-CM6 will work also). The bearings are the highest quality of any Chinese engine – they are true Japanese NSK bearings. All the components are top quality which is what makes it run so well and last for a long time.

Notes: We have determined that it is best to use no less oil than 32:1 and a prop no smaller than 19x8 for longer life. The PTE-36 uses the same engine mounting pattern and same prop bolt pattern as the DLE-30.

Displacement: 36CC
Bore x Stork: 38*32
Carburetor: Walbro
RPM Range: 1350-9000RPM
Ignition: DC 4.8-6 Volts (made by Pterodactyl) *Battery Information
Fuel mixture 25-50 : 1
Propeller: Break in:
2-blade: 18x8 (5+ gallons)

Broken in:
2-blade: 19x8 - 20x6
3-blade: Biela 16x10 - 17x10
4-blade: Biela 16x8 (Mustang/Warbirds)

The cylinder and ring are fairly hard which requires a longer break in time, though this offers longer engine life. The bearings are high quality, so the TBO (time between overhauls) is greatly enhanced.

WARNING - Gasoline and Turbine powered R/C model aircraft are not manufactured to withstand unlimited G's. Any R/C model aircraft can fail, be it a wing folding up or a fuselage breaking in half under too high of a load. Just as any full size aircraft, model R/C aircraft have a maximum G rating. Because you are not in the plane flying it and experiencing the G's and reading the G-meter, it is more difficult to judge the G's on the aircraft, and it is very easy to exceed the limits of the aircraft. Understand that if you perform a snap roll, parachute, wall, blender, knife edge loop, or pull hard on the elevator at almost any speed, you can be putting in excess of 15 G's, even in excess of 30 G's, and most aircraft can only designed to take 10-12 G's. If you perform any violent maneuver, you can break your plane. When I perform hard maneuvers, especially for the first time on an airframe, I am prepared for a failure and am prepared for it as best I can be. This mainly includes performing the maneuver far enough away from spectators that in event of a failure that I am not endangering others. In addition, be prepared for the manufacturer to not pay for a new airframe which is broken during flight. It is common practice for any manufacturer to not replace an airframe which breaks in the air or upon landing. I have only seen manufacturers replace airframes when they have received many of the same failures and the manufacturer determines that there was a design or manufacturing error. If you break an airframe, and you are the only one to do so, then it is probably not the fault of the manufacturer. Please fly safely, and avoid full throttle operation other than at low airspeeds.

R/C model jets, warbirds, aerobatic planes, DJI S1000 Octocopter, and UAV Unmanned Aerial Vehicles to name a few are not a toy! If misused, it can cause serious bodily harm and property damage. Fly only in open areas, and AMA (Academy of Model Aeronautics) approved flying sites. Follow all manufacturer instructions included with your plane, radio, servo's, batteries and engine. Aircraft manufacturers guarantees each kit to be free from defects in both material and workmanship at the date of purchase. This warranty does not cover any component assembled by the customer. All parts of high stress must be inspected and reinforced if necessary by a competent builder. Some parts should be glued again. High stress areas such as firewalls, motor boxes, wing mounts, landing gear mounts, etc., are areas of high concern. Seek help if necessary. In not case shall TBM be liable for the cost of any product it offers which is not manufactured by TBM. The liability to the manufacturer cannot exceed the original cost of the purchased item. Further, TBM reserves the right to change or modify this warranty without notice. In that TBM has no control over the final assembly or materials used for final assembly, no liability shall be assumed nor accepted for any damage resulting from the use by the user of the final user-assembled product. By the act of using the user assembled product, the user accepts all resulting liability. The kit manufacturers have provided you with a top quality, thoroughly tested kit and instructions, but ultimately the quality and fly ability of your finished model depends on how you build it; therefore, we cannot in any way guarantee the performance of your completed model, and no representations are expressed or implied as to the performance or safety of your completed model. It is the user's responsibility to inspect each component for worthiness.
