    RE: Club Enya

    The only electric motors I use are for starting my internal combustion engines. . Beyond that, I dislike electric anything.

    I do fancy Enya engines, but I haven't found a .35 that will turn a APC 9x6 at 18,000rpm yet. If anyone knows of one, let me know. Otherwise I may have to go the way of the Jett's for this one. Got a special purpose for the said engine.

    P.S. I use old model engine fuel that doesn't run well in my 2-stroke gas can for my weed wacker and ice auger. I've even put a little in my lawnmower. The smell of castor while drilling holes through 2' of ice is priceless. (My old 3hp Tecumseh 2C likes a smidge of nitro even)

    This past summer I was sitting on my porch with a couple of neighbor lady friends. My neighbor races motocross bikes and he ran out of gas for his power washer. He was washing his bike and had dumped some of his race fuel into the tank of the power washer. The ladies I was sitting with smelled the castor burning and said "What's that awful smell?" I said "Perfume".

    I say "PFFFFFT" to the cool power fanboys. That stuff wreaks! My RC car exhaust burns my nose even running 50/50 cas/synth. Full castor doesn't burn my nose. Smells great, lubes better. No brainer.

    So, does Enya make a .25-.35 engine that will turn a 9x6 at close to 17k or slightly above?

    I used to run Sig Manufacturing fuel and loved it. But, I think, Sig is no more. A few years ago one of our members referred to Cool Power as Fool Power. I might try some home brew.

    SIG still makes fuel. It's good stuff too. I buy castor and klotz from them. It's just too expensive to buy premixed fuel these days. I get pure nitro for $55 a gallon with free shipping. Fuel for my Enyas and SuperTigres is about $7-8 a gallon to make myself. SIG fuel is $8 a quart at the hobby shop. Hazmat fees on gallons isn't any better.

    Thank you. Good to know. I may not use enough to make it worthwhile to my own like loading my own rifle ammo. Hey, maybe i'll order from you! Hobbies pursued to vigorously become professions.

    Well said, that man.

    The other day I came across an old copy of Flying Models with a letter to the editor that said, "I find electric power about as interesting as listening to my refrigerator. And at least there's something interesting inside the refrigerator.". Which pretty much sums up how I feel. 22 Enyas, no electrics.

    Fiery, you might be interested to know that your old 09-III that came to me via Dave Owen is a runner once more. I cleaned it up a bit, put a new plug in, and bench-ran it yesterday. Not much compression to speak of, but it was still managing a steady 14000 with an APC 7x4. Thanks!

    I know two things about electriucity. You've gotta pay the bill and it will knock you on your tail feathers. 22 Enyas? Did they make that many different engines or do you have 20 VT240s? I have two new Aquacrft EP-1 outboard motors and I'm glad.

    BTW - The seller from the vT-240 auction contacted Ken Enya for a little history of the VT-240. They told him they were produced from 86 to 95 and only 1000 were produced. I've got one. who are the rest of you guys?

    Looked at it...looks nice but....

    This engine is no longer in production. One small ding on crankcase nose, about 2mm x 3mm and less than 1mm deep (whole lot less than 1mm).
    I never met a engine I did not like !
