    The NGH 9cc engine does work OK, but usually you need to mess with the pump/regulator unit to get it to work right. The carb also doesn't work like we would normally think it does. Idle speed is with...

    1) It uses a OS P3 Turbo plug. It is slightly larger than a regular glow plug. The plug size is common with RC car engines and racing engines.

    I never had a need for as reverse rotating engine all that much. I used them on a couple of pusher planes years ago. My twin engine planes worked fine with regular counter rotating engines.

    Thanks.


    I like the new engine smell, when you run that first fuel tank of fuel through them. The engines all have that unique new engine smell to them.

    They also sell assorted additives that can add a nice smell to your exhaust too.
    Cherry, Apple, Banana, Tropical Fruit, etc.
    I bought some, but I haven't tried it out yet.

    I hope they put some care, and love into making the engines. Not just slap them together with a don't care attitude. It tends to cause the quality and attention to detail to suffer. That causes the...

    That is a nice job on making that new piston. I think it is great you saved the engine so it can be used. It looks like it turned out really well too.

    It sounded OK to me, they were working on hovering the plane a lot and high alpha flying, so they would be down at idle and fast idle speeds and blipping the throttle a lot. Not flying WOT in this...

    CS seems to be down to a small number of different engines now. Mostly retro model diesel engine reproductions. They do make a couple of glow engines for control line combat though. ...

    I wonder if this is that 70cc engine that someone made from using a motorcycle engine. It runs OK, but weighs a lot though, something like 4.6kg.
    Not sure about power either.

    What does it look like, any pictures? Any specifications, weight, size measurements, and so on?
