    .049 Engine

    I currently fly a Brodak .049 engine (which runs very well), but I am curious if there are other companies out there manufacturing .049 engines??

    RE: .049 Engine

    There are a number of other manufacturers making .049's like this one but they're mainly all very high performance engines. Just about all of them are made in Russia and turn in the 30,000+ range. This page has a list of just about all engines in the .049/.061 range.

    RE: .049 Engine

    Just noticed this thread and thought I should mention that Brodak engines are pretty much a CS engine.  I heard they will not be making any more castings after the existing ones are used up.  They also made a BB .049 and .06 ABC motor as well.  It needed a lot of attention to tolerances and stuff but was pretty good.  I have a piped one and a normal one, they were about $100 for the piped quite one a while ago.  If I needed a 1/2 A motor I would just get the AP Hornet .09 (or .15 which is the same weight and bolt pattern.)  They are ball bearing, ABC, super cheap and a good motor considering.  They have a throttle and restrictive muffler though. I made a venturi and needle valve for control line for mine. It goes pretty good with the bigger venturi. For $35 it beats a Surestart and is way better for RC. You can't compete in 1/2 A events though. Otherwise, a Profi or Fora is pretty great!!!$

    RE: .049 Engine

    I believe the MkII Brodak .049s are made in the Ukraine now. If you wish to play
    with diesel engines, the PAW .049s are also currently available; from Carlson engine imports and
    Eric Clutton. I have a PAW .049 diesel that pulls a Ringmaster Jr on 45' lines and it will do the
    entire stunt pattern at 54 mph.
