Default Paris Air Show

I just attended the Paris Airshow for the first time ever and had fun doing that, etc. Walking through the big commercial aviation pavilions, it was interesting to see many small turbine or turbo diesel engines that are now hitting the market to power the ever emerging fleet of UAV/UASs in the world. A Turkish company called "TEI" has a 170 hp 2.1 litter engine they've developed with a dry weight of 158 kg. (348 lbs?) w/"redundant ECU (FADEC)". I asked the salesman about price, and he said it hadn't been established yet. A Polish company also had a small turbo diesel that looked pretty cool, as well as a very small Turbo-prop that put out about 40 lbs of thrust. Maybe some of these engines will eventually find their way into our world...?
