The lightweight, high-torque Lycoming engine X-Drive starter from Kelly Aerospace was developed to meet the needs of the aerospace industry. It starts with the same permanent magnet motor as the E-Drive starter and offers low current draw, high torque, and superior duty cycle. An all-metallic planetary gear reduction system has the strength and durability to crank large piston engines and still deliver time-between-overhaul life performance. A key characteristic is the side-mounted solenoid actuation system, which allows a compact design and removes the mechanical Bendix drive.

Thermal imaging data obtained from a FLIR high-performance camera shows that the expected turbine output temperature is approximately 285°C when the helicopter is in forward flight. However, during hover operations a steady state temperature of about 343°C will be reached.
