Kontax KS90R Solar Ross Yoke

Ten years ago i bought my first Solar LTD engine from Kontax, i thought it would be a good time to add to my collection with this model:

The obligatory grass shot. ;)

I love the motion on this engine very much. It runs really nicely with a pleasant tick and is up to Kontax's usual build quality standards.
It ran straight out of the box too.  ;D

You'll do better to find another high quality LTD engine from elsewhere save for maybe the Carl Aero models.

Kontax engines are fabulous.

I have one that sits on my coffee mug most mornings. 🤠

I'm very happy with all of mine!  ;D

I'm running mine more off my USB warming plates now winter is here, quite relaxing having them slowly tick over.  8)
