Default 3W-240 2cyl/ twin ign.

I would like feedback (good or bad) on personal experiences with this motor as I plan to put it in a large scale model and I want to be sure it will be reliable.

thanks in advance.

My zdz210 was a bit stronger than the 3w. The 3w always ran good though.

I didn't know 3W made a 240 twin. I purchased a 3W 210 twin, twin spark for my 1/2 scale Fokker DR1 as I thought that was the biggest twin other than the rear intake 3W 275 which I didn't want to deal with rear intake. I haven't run it yet, but its suppose to have 21hp.at 5800rpm. I'll find out soon enough.

Hi, yes, the 3W-240 is now an discontinued motor of about 4 or 5 years back or so.

Good luck with your 210.
