    RE: mpjet 061D

    Sounds about right in terms of rpm for both engines, the MP jet should improve a little and reach about 12000rpm on a 7x5 prop.

    Martin, you found my one gripe with that engine...the needle is sooo close to the back of the prop! Excellent runner though!

    These are fantastic engines, but like smaller props even though they do better on larger props than some of the other .061's on the market.

    I had mine out just this morning, and it was great. Used an APC 7x3 as usual. The model is a little semi-scale D.520 CL stunter I drew up, about 34" span - more than enough power!

    RE: mpjet 061D

    OK group not good news, If you want an MPjet 061 has fallen to the electric craze, David Owen has a few left, no more to be made, was doing the e mail thing with Fiery last night and found this out. I was trying to get an exhaust extension, David ordered some no more left or engines to be made have gone the way of the the MVVS 15D and a few other classics
    Reminds me of the lyrics of the folk song written by Pete Seeger in 1955 and was popular in the early 1960s, the One done by Peter, Paul and Mary was one of the bigger versions in the 1960s..It was a war protest song but the opening lyrics "where have all the flowers gone, long time passing applies to our state of diesels now
    All is not bad new David will the have the Taipan series replica 2.5cc Series 66 replica back in production for spring delivery a few made so far I have one martin
    I should have a box of parts today via UPS for a drone 29, hope I can get one up and running martin

    Just to clarify, I think that'll be David Burke you're referring to with the Series 66 replica? David Owen should also be starting delivery of his own replicas (of the '58 Taipan 'Redhead') in the coming months, but that's a limited run and can't really be said to be back in production. All good news anyway.

    Shame about the 061BB, as it's a brilliant little engine as either a glow or a diesel.

    Nice Dewoitine Steve. I envy modellers who can finish a model really well. I can build, but have real issues with finishing.

    RE: mpjet 061D

    Don't worry Derek, I can't finish them all that well either. About all I can do is try to throw on a flashy paint scheme, make it look shiny with some gloss marine varnish, and then photograph from far enough away that you can't tell what it's really like. I know that plenty of guys (particularly those on the US stunt scene) will spend months sanding with wet & dry, apply half a dozen coats of 2-pack clear gloss, etc, and get a stunning finish, but that's way beyond both my skill and patience.

    RE: mpjet 061D

    You may have gotten a new production item then. The extension I linked to in another thread (how many different threads do we need on this engine?) had a red label on it, and it is made in aluminium.

    The mufflers have gone through some changes too throughout the years, I kind of prefer the latest plain coloured one;

    RE: mpjet 061D

    Yes, the extension comes with two equal length bolts, so the rear one will be a little short. Can't remember just how short it was but I think it would do two turns at least, might break easily in a crash though (and strip the threads in the case).

    I think it will be a little hard to find long enough screws, so unless you need absolutely all of the extension, you could grind some off from the extension I guess.

    The screws are regular M3 and can be bought long enough elsewhere. I found a brass one straight away in my tool box...

    Hi Dave, I mentioned this thread to David a couple of days ago, and it was the first he'd heard of it. Doesn't mean it's not true, of course.

    Oddly enough, MP Jet stopped making the 061BB first time round in order to concentrate on electrics (as I understand it). Then the electric market got more competitive, and the 061 reappeared. Now it seems from this thread that they're stopping the 061 to concentrate on electrics...again. All very confusing.
