Well, I bit the bullet and ordered the TP 70. DHL just dropped it off.
It was completing assembled- carb, intake etc. The package made it all the way from China with no problems. I say that, due to the why it was packed. Most motors that I have purchased have always been package in a foam container to prevent any damage. This was just wrapped in bubble pack, butt it worked.
You can tell that the motor has been test ran, I guess at the factory due to the black carbon in the exhaust port and the oil residue on the motor. No tools came with it for adjusting the valves like some motor manufactures include or instructions on how to adjust the valves. No muffler came with the motor just a flex exhaust pipe about 12 inches long. It comes with with two sets of stand offs of different lengths and two intake manifolds along with a velocity intake for the carb.
I will be installing this in a P-51 TOP FLITE GIANT Scale 84 in.

. Speaking of manifolds. The one mounted on the motor is different then the spare one that came with the motor. The spare one is continuous tig welded all the way around on both flanges. The one factory mounted on the motor is just spot welded.

Back to the crankcase fitting. It's almost like they intend you to pressurize the gas tank with it, like on a nitro. I have read a lot of guys use inline pumps to pressurize the system on gas four stoke motors. I know Kolm motors suggest using a motor pump to keep contest pressure on the carb. They say it makes the motor run much smoother on their four stoke motors.

Great to see on in a consumers hands. I am interested in this engine as I have Pre-ordered the TF P-47 Razorback and I think a 4stroke sound will be great from this engine... What are the dimensions of this beast? And please do let us know how she runs and the dependability.
THanks,
D

Is it possible to turn the carb to another direction? As it is, it might stick out from most cowls. It would be handy if one could turn the carb behind the engine like in kolm or valach.

The motor comes with two intakes to have the carb where you want it, kind of like Valach
If your interested I have one for sale due to I decided not to build the TF Mustang 84in. I am going to finish a 33% Pawnee Hangar9

Thanks, I think it's too expensive to send to Europe. I just saw the thread at fg, there is also drawing of the new intake. One other question, is the prop hub has to be farther from the firewall, in other words, do you need longer stand offs when using second intake?

I have just purchased my second tp 70 , the first one is in my 3DHS 92" edge it came in at just over 15 lbs . I have found the best prop to be the falcon carbon 25x8 . crazy power for this weight of plane and instant response . nice idle but there is a bit of a learning curve to get it started . power is deceiving because the power impulses are 1/2 of a 2 cycle . the engine is only 4.5 lbs ,it sounds a bit heavy but it is actually lighter then a 2 cycle with pipe , thinking I was dealing with a heavy motor I opted to put my rudder servo in the tail ( should have gone pull pull) ended up having to put batteries up in the nose. not sure what the weight limit of this engine would be for good 3d performance but I would guess in the 17lb range . anyway I give this engine after 60-70 flights a big thumbs up ,all engines are run and set up in the factory so you just mount it a go fly , I adjusted the valves after 3 flights and they were quite loose but have been good since so it may have been a factory setting. .

Any long term user report on this engine? I still have it in my radar but lack of long term reviews holding me back.

Yep another season for me
I purchased two of these motors about three years ago. The second one was purchased as a backup motor which is still in the box. I guess I should sell it due to the first one is still running strong. I have it mounted in a Topflite P-51. Looks good and sounds even better.
If I ever get around to listing it in the classified I'll let you know.

I also bought mine a couple of years back and it has sat in the box until today. I had almost forgotten about it and was wondering what I was going to put in my TF Corsair... then I saw the box gathering dust on my shelf.. ok so I got it mounted and now I will have to cut a hole into the firewall for the carb... I was looking at all the pics that every one has posted and realized my TP 70 did not come with any kind of exhaust.. just the manifold. I went to HK and looked to see if I could order at least the flex pipe but they don't have any parts listed for sale? or am I looking in the wrong place?

I would at least like to have a pipe exhausting everything out of the cowl... any ideas?

You might want to check out this -> https://www.krumscheid-metallwaren.d...ml?___store=en, it is not only a pipe but also muffler integrated. A bit pricey but quality should be really good.

I have two of these motors. And like most spark plug caps they have ring some call it a hog ring. Anyhow put the cap on straight and tap it with a small rubber or wood mallet and it open that ring wider so it will slide down and fit.
