Alaska Runner Generators
Bob Rubey of Alaska Runner Generators installed two RSC671 controllers in conjuction with twoESD5221 controllers driving two ACE275 actuators on a Hovercraft. These were installed on the main propulson engines which are Deutz 12L513's driving the 9-foot props. Work was performed in 1996, and to date the governor problems are virtually non-existent. check out the Hovercrafts Video
