Is any of their stuff any good? Others might have heard otherwise but I've never heard any good stories associated with them.

If that video is in real time, the testers did not follow Sky-tech's procedure on waiting between starts allowing time for it to cool. Also noted that the Sky-tec seems to turn the engine over faster. Just my observations.

I have a Sky-Tec and have no complaints.

I just bought the airplane and it had starting issues, I had the starter gone through locally replaced brushes and bendix...still having issues. Turns out I needed the 149 tooth starter, this one hasn't been used since being serviced. I have no idea about how good or bad they are, Kelly Aerospace was bought by Hartsell a while back.
