(3) Fordable for easy storage.
(4) Long service range (above 25 miles per fuel charge)
(5) Multi-function (convertible into power dolly)
Centerpiece of PT is the light structure FAI engine for light and quiet tasks. Because of (1) gas-electric hybrid power (2) kinetic energy feed back (3) programmable gas expansion ratio (4) fuel expansion absorbs heat; FAI engine operates in high efficiency, low temperature and quiet, the engine block is possible to be built in polymer material for wearable, personal or robotic applications.
