    RE: What Airplanes are you Installing a Mintor22cc gas engine in?

    ORIGINAL: captinjohn

    Well I made my first flights on My AeroWorks 260 Profile today. I had all the throws set pretty slow for the maiden flight. It only needed 2 clicks of up elevator and nothing else. Once up in the air I kinda just flew easy with some figure 8 for pratice and too get the feel of a new airplane. It flew super smooth and I liked how it responded to throttle change. There was no change in flight (like up & down) as different throttle setting was tried. I new I had to make that first landing...and to my surprize it landed so good I could not believe it! So I took it right back up and landed a couple times more...they ended being 3 point landings with no bounce whatsoever. I do need to speed the ailerons up...they are way to slow for me. Total time flying close to a hour and it was geting dark here in Mich at 8:50 PM with a few coluds in the west towards Lake Michigan. This bird is a keeper with the Mintor 22cc gas engineΒ*that ran really well. Best Regards, Capt,n
    Nice install Captain, and a great looking engine. Hope if flies well. Good luck and have fun! Right now I am working on finishing up a 50cc Extra with a Stihl 62cc chainsaw engine. The engine weighs about 8 ounces less than a G-62 Lite, and is more powerful as well. Should fly great!

    Thanks Captain. Don't mean to hijack this thread, but since you asked for pics, here they are..... It is a Wild Hare R/C 28% Extra with an 84" wingspan.

    Getting close....

    RE: What Airplanes are you Installing a Mintor22cc gas engine in?

    Now that I am back to working on my Bucker Jungman project, the Mintor is one of the engines being considered. It has a wingspan of 58" so it is comparable in size to a Goldberg Ultimate. Very unique kit. The manufacturer was based in Scotland under the name of Cap aeromodels. The kit was produced in 1974 and has been one of the most difficult builds I have ever done. Lots of sticks. If you look closely you will notice the stab/elevator, ruddr/fin tips. They are 3 laminations of 1/64 ply sanded to a 1/2 radius. Can't wait to get started on the wings. I just have to deside to build stock flat bottom wings or to cut all new ribs for symmetrical wings. What do you guys think?

    RE: What Airplanes are you Installing a Mintor22cc gas engine in?

    I have a Seagull Spacewalker 120 and am using a DLE 20 in it...It has lots of power..The DLE's are a bit loud so an after market muffler might be an option...I have ones for both my DLE 20 and my 30... I find the throttle really only responsive thru the first 1/2 of the throw..The last half dosen't do much...Also when I throttle down it stays on high idle for a little while before going to a slow idle..It affects landing..You need to set up early or you use lots of runway...I really like the DLE's power....

    Hey guys what is the noise level like on the 22? That muffler doesn't look like it would do much.

    The Mintor 22cc noise level is not as bad as a DLE30...I have both ! The Mintor22cc is the smoothest gas engine I have ran. Capt,n

    RE: What Airplanes are you Installing a Mintor22cc gas engine in?

    Hi all,
    My experience of the Mintor 22 is that I flew it for 22 flights (would you believe!) - yes I log all my flights. There must have been something in that because I could not get it to run again.[] It was flown in a WOT 4 XL with a 17x6 prop. No cowl.

    Having exhausted all obvious reasons why it would no longer start the supplier here in the UK suggested I look into the carb and check the filter - no problems there. So I removed the whole carb and what did I find - a shattered reed valve. It has now been returned to Minotori. Apparantly this is the first failure of its kind in Europe. Today I received a replacement and started the run-in process.

    I use a digital (infra-red) thermometer on the head to track the temeperature and of course the tacho connected into the ignition. At 4k-4.5k the head temp reads 85-95 deg C. Using two together is very helpful when finding peak rpm.

    It is now back on the WOT 4 XL. The canister as supplied may look good - but inverted it hangs too far below the fuselage and I suggest that it would be too prone to bending on a nose over. Previously I mounted it vertically like a chimney! In my view that supplied with the engine only serves to proteect the exhaust port... The noise was a bit distracting. Anyway now I have a header and a proper canister made up for it which runs alongside the fuselage- sooo much quieter.

    Was thinking to install Mintor 22 cc in Hanger 9 AT-6 Texan. What think you? Perhaps too much engine?

    Seems like the Mintor22cc engine should wok in a Hanger 9 AT-6 Texan. By the way, there is a new web-site for Mintor engines. I will find the link and post it here. Capt,n
