Has anyone bought the 14 cylinder radial from Authentic Scale Engines? http://www.authenticscale.com/index.html

I was interested but haven't heard from anyone who received one.

I see they are also coming out with gasoline versions including a 28 cylinder radial late in 2012.

I want to fly my engine but air planes that big are $$$ I don't think most people fly there engines they have to much time in to them
There to heavy and not good performance ?
Small radials have poor power/weight compared to twostrokes. They do offer majestic performance with incredible looks and sound compared to the ubiquitous chainsaw. There is nothing that Id rather fly anymore.

Now that's an interesting engine! Only 41cc and a gasser? Nice...

More information required please Where did your mate get the plans? Outside diameter?

What type of ingition, carby, fuel mix, bearings, prop size etc ... just a few minor details will do.

Regards, RossG

I see Advantage Hobby appear to have the old Siedel(now UMS) radials in stock,inc. the petrol(gas) 260cc which includes the collector ring,The price is not bad at 3000USD. Pity I have already spent my money on a Saito325 and a Siedel/UMS 770! Just have to start saving up again,cheers,Mark.

My post 3269 on this thread show the 7 cyl gas radial 41cc that my mate has lent me to put to good use. However there seems to be a fuel starvation problem at 3/4 to WOT. The carb that is on it now is of unknow make with a venturi bore of 3/16" - thats about 1/4 of one cyl bore diameter.

What webro carb or similar might to the job better??

Reading back through this forum reveals some big quality issues in the asp 400, have any of these been improved?? motor could be a major score at about 800 green backs

The venturi size for that size engine (7-6cc cylinders) is about midrange to slightly high - depending upon the rpm you are trying to hit. Do you have a way to deliver the fuel under pressure to the carb? The actual venturi design can increase/decrease the vacuum available to pull the fuel from the tank as well. The smallest venturi I would recommend would be .140" (3.5mm) but I'm not sure the fuel draw will necessarily improve, and youmight draw down the power available.

and
I would like to achieve 6500 with a 18x8 or 18x10 prop. There is no way I can add a pump. I have emailed Perry Pumps and
they don't seem to do a suitable model.
I have a Dubro 14oz installed and the head that sits approx 5" from the carb. The clunk being another 2" back.

I know some carbs have a diaphram in them- is that the pump on those??

You might try moving the fuel tank as close as you can and see if that solves anything. As for pumps either the Perry VP-40SG or a Walbro style carb you are going to need to pick up either pressure or vacuum from somewhere to operate the pump. A radial engine has no internal crankcase pressure per se so that leaves you looking for a vacuum source, i.e. the intake tubes for the cylinders. On the EVOgas radials we pickup vaccum pressure to run the carb from two adjacent intake tubes (two are necessary - because of the cycle time for each cylinder the vacuum from only one tube is not sufficient). You can use a Y connector between the two intake tubes and a single line to the carb or pump.

As for suitable Walbro carbs the smallest venturi they have is about 8mm in diameter, which makes them really too large for your application. i would give the perry pump a try operated by the vacuum system described above.

BTW - an 18 x 10 at is probably about the max you will be able to achieve with that displacement.

That's a good choice, nice looking engine. Are they actually available yet?
Which engine gave your club mate problems? Is it a radial?

My clubmate built his own engine from plans he had years ago. The evolution 77cc radial I found in the UK but in the USA you might find [link=http://www.ajhobby.com/defaultpage.asp?cat=Home]THIS[/link] a possibility.

I got my engine for £884 of your finest English pounds.

Hi all,

Recently, I bought a Technopower 7 cylinder engine from ebay. I think it is a used engine and my knowledge on radial engine is zero. Therefore I have alot of doubts and hope the guru here can shed some lights. Thanks.
My questions are :

1) The engine has punched number on the backplate as "7B 120". What is the engine capacity; 20 or 30 cc ?
2) From what I had read, this seem to be an earlier verison of the technopower, is it really underpowered ? I'm thinking of fitting it on a BH Corsair 91, ESM Aichi or Great Plane PT-17 120 size, is this a good choice ?
3) What is the recommended propeller for this engine?
4) The engine came with a OS carb for I guess .20 or .25 size engine. Is it the original carb ?
5) I don't see any pressure nip at the exhaust, do I need to buy a perry pump when flying the plane ?
6) What is the recommended fuel for this engine ? 0% nitro ?


Cheers,

John

1. Not sure but 7Cyl B type engine size 1.20
2. Mine has the power of a .91
3. I used a 14 X 6
4. That most likely is the original carb.
5. None needed there is a fair bit of vacuum from the 7 cylinders
6. I used standard 10% castor synthetic blend. Not sure if that is what is recomended.


Do yourself a favor and ask these questions from Marc Linville at Technopower. The last contact info I have is, Marc Linville, TechnoPower Engines Info@TechnoPower.com

Hi Dennis,

Thanks for the advice. I will write to Marc for more details.

I thinking if the engine output is similar to .91size or roughly 1.6bhp, then it look like the flying weight for the whole plane setup would have to keep within 4 kg to 5 kg. Or else it will a challenge to fly the plane.
