    RE: Pratt & Whitney 1/5 scale radial engine for warbirds

    If that is a R-2800 where is the second row of cylinders????

    It does look really cool though & in a model I would not want the hassle of cooling a second row or the weight.
    I don't have a flying problem, I can quit flying anytime I like.................

    RE: Pratt & Whitney 1/5 scale radial engine for warbirds

    Yeah! Try going into the parts section and scroll down about halfway on the left and you'll see the collector ring for it looks just like a AT6 exhaust nice-looking piece. It's going to have a multi spark electronic ignition and Antonio at authentic scale said the Ignition has 2 sparks per combustion. Two spark plugs Per cylinder also So that's really cool and then to top it off they have the 3,4 and five blade Variable pitch propeller (Ground adjustable) looking forward to hearing it run

    1/5th B-17 or B-25, or even a B-24, B-29 would just be the nutz! Four of those running in unison flying low overhead, I think I just had an O.

    A quarter scale engines are at least a year out. 1/6th scale engines will be first.

    Well it appears that we have a updated website here. He has posted pictures of the engine finally put together with the prop. What an absolutely sexy piece of machinery. I have got to get one of these in my plane

    i saw them a couple of months ago too, but now looks like they have increased the price substantially! I am sure it was sub $4000 before, now it is $5000!

    Boy oh boy I don't know what happened. But it used to be $3500. I'm going to have to give Antonio a call and find out what happened. Because now it's priced that nobody can afford it

    Its priced so now its competing with the Larger Moki radials, and given the reputation those have and history those have, youd probly be better off with a moki.

    RE: Pratt & Whitney 1/5 scale radial engine for warbirds

    Beautiful engine but at the size or 11 inches in diamater it is going to be hard to find a model it fits into. You will need at least a 12 - 12.5" cowl to make it work. Remember right thrust guys? This pushes the entire engine off to the left side of the fuselage to ensure the prop shaft exits in the center of the cowling.

    The real aircraft positioned the verticals with 3 - 5 degrees of right thrust and not the engines. I am currently building a Comp ARF P-47 for a friend and tried to fit the Evo 7 cylinder 260 inside teh cowling and it won't fit if you want any type of right thrust. When you increase the number of cylinders around the cracnkcase the diameter goes up. This is one of the main reasons Moki went with a 5 cylinder radial when they developed the engine. It is smaller in diameter.

    I will say the engine is a true work of art, even at the current price!

    I guess we will just have to start building in the proper offset into the stab!
    The later Bf109s used a semi symmetrical airfoil to accomplish the same thing.

    A Splined crank shaft will be a problem. Not to the engine but to "sudden stopage". Can you imagine what's going to happen when THAT happens? Not sure its a good idea to have it for our models.
