    RE: Club MVVS

    John534 - that reduction gear setup looks amazing. Did you engineer and build that yourself? Or is that an add-on for warbird engines? Also, it sounds like the engine gets very quite after a certain RPM - am I imagining that, or is that some property of that engine \ muffler combo?

    Have the MVVS .40, .49, .91 and a boxed, new .61 (purchased from Morris Hobbies, when he was still in business!)
    Great engines.

    RE: Club MVVS

    I have an older MVVS 40/6.5. It needs an O ring for the carb to case, and another for the throttle barrel. Anyone where I can get these? The case one I can probably subsitute something, but the barrel one looks special.

    thnx

    RE: Club MVVS

    If you want a factory spare try Pe Reivers at:

    www.mvvs.nl

    Easy to deal with and easy to order from.

    Another option is to email the spares dept. at the factory "MVVS, spol. s r.o." in Czech Republic and ask for Sabina (who communicates in excellent written engilish):

    mvvs@mvvs.cz

    or Josef *vajda for technical queries:

    josefsvajda@mvvs.cz

    He designed many of the engines for MVVS and works in spares I believe to this day.

    Purchasing from the factory is more difficult as there are no "on line" point and click facilities.

    Factory web site:

    www.mvvs.cz

    (on home page, click on "Union Jack" flag for english text)

    Carb spares:

    RE: Club MVVS

    The other day at the field I started a NIB Modela diesel for a friend. Nice runner.

    Bad news:
    The .15RC is discontinued, CL versions still available, so are the .15 RC and CL diesels.

    RE: Club MVVS

    It's one of a series of three engines:
    .60, .72 and .77, all based on the same crankcase casting by using different strokes and bores. All these are strong runners at lower rpm/large props.
    For detailed info, check on www.mvvs.cz or my web page www.mvvs.nl

    RE: Club MVVS

    I dug out some of my other MVVS engines. Here is my MVVS 6.5cc Quickee 500 racing engine. I think they stuck on the MVVS carb intended for the 10cc engines on this one. As it has a really big bore in it in comparison to the other 6.5cc engines. But I was too lazy to measure it though.










    Here is another one that I have:




    You can see the smaller bore carb on this one


    You can see the smaller bore on the newer model 6.5cc blue head engine here too

    RE: Club MVVS

    Hello Jan,
    Thanks for your interest and we are looking to have these(and other engines) available this summer or fall. I will have a thread on our reductions and a website up around the same time when.

    Stay tuned, and thanks again!

    RE: Club MVVS

    ORIGINAL: fiery

    This may be a club of one, as I don't know how many MVVS engines are still used or collected [&o], but here goes.

    I took a few shots of my ''Sunday Fun'' 40 sized aircraft between flights this morning.

    Powered by my trusty MVVS 49 ''greenhead'' with MVVS quiet silencer. Ultra reliable, can't remember when it last deadsticked.

    Regularly used (abused? ) and flown hard for over four years, and still has tremendous compression hot or cold.

    I feel the thing will never wear out. I have certainly received my money's worth.

    So I don't get lonely, if you have an MVVS engine, post some pics on this thread!


    fiery, don't worry!
    Here is my contribution and just as you I show my model because she is at least as important as the engine she is carrying.

    "Miss Replica Top Flite Taurus". descendante of a family of fifty years ago. After the HB and the OS Max, she is most happy for several years now with the long stroke in her engine room.
    Basically she is 'sized' for 0.45 so we can speak about a tight fit with that 10 CCM , see my close up photograph 2.

    She did undergo some surgeries to mask her age; fuel pressure controller and Robbe Bordcomputer for datalog of fuel level, temperature, RPM.
    Last pictures, "Miss Replica" with some finery, in action, photographs made to investigate the downwash. for which she also is equiped with an airspeed controller and airpeed logging.

    Great looking ship!

    I am sure it is more than adequately powered with the 10 ccm MVVS.

    I see you run a Graupner G-Sonic prop. What is the size?

    fiery


    It's a secret so don't tell other people, she is addicted to alcohol and doesn't like too much additional liquids.
    So she drinks methanol diluted with 2,5 % nitro and 10 % synthetic oil.
    The Graupner G sonic is a 13 x 7. she can manage these big guys!

    I've always have to make her "enthousiastic" before I bring her in higher spheres. I did make a short video of that.
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pxUSF...8&feature=plcp

    There are also some more "in action" video's of her but to make these we are still learning. there is a small generation gap.

    ORIGINAL: buzzard bait

    I have the .12 Modela diesel with RC carb and muffler, and the .26 glow. I haven't run either one yet, and I'm curious about others' experiences with them. I know the .12 has a reputation for being very user friendly.

    Maybe someone will inspire me to pull these out and run them.
    Here is a little video with the Modela 2cc diesel, it is a very nice engine. Both powerful and easy to operate:

    RE: Club MVVS

    I had forgot I took some pics of my old MVVS 35cc engine. it isn't exactly a lightweight engine either.
    It is a little on the heavy side with its All up weight.  I need to put this on something in the future as I remember it as being a pretty nice running engine at the time.  Beleive it or not the plane it was on was involved in a mid-air on the ground collision. Someone else lost control of their plane, it did a huge loop on take off and dived straight  into the pit area right on top of my plane. No damage to the engine of course but the plane didn't do well at all.

    RE: Club MVVS

    Oh yeah, here is my little MVVS 1.5cc diesel engine:





    I found a Modella muffler that fits the engine too at Hobby Club.


    I have a Modella RC carb for it too.



    I have a big MVVS 10cc engine with both the glow and diesel heads:






    I acquired a 2.5cc MVVS engine from Pe Reivers a couple three years ago before his supply ran out.
