That was my PeeWee Penetrator.... I wouldn't put a VA on a MicroShark/Yellowjacket, torque rolls would be a handful.

I can't say that the .020 will be faster because they are both pretty quick and get blisteringly quick when you start changing the props. Out of the box, the .020 would be faster but to be dead...

I won't know until I have solid numbers to approach them with, current cost is about 2 bills but they welcome group buys to get that cost down. I currently have interest to cover 6-7 engines.

Any interest in a group buy of Mini Oliver Tiger .5cc's

Hey guys,

i posted in the big vintage diesel thread over on RCG that I'm considering running a group buy. Apparently, Technohobby who sells these engines welcomes group buys and offers some form...

Interesting the timing of this thread, considering that I was digging thru my photo bucket account tonight and was watching a video I took of my Norvel .061 R/C with a diesel head on it. No idea how...

Greg says it makes more power than on glow, just at an RPM that most don't think of when equating small engines and earth shaking power. His website says it does 11k on a Graupner 8-4 with a 4500rpm...

I'm running two of them, a JMGlasskraft Penetrator and a Herr P-51. The Herr is a little pokey on a 6.3-4 because the fuse is so wide, I'm hoping a Propper prop will help get it off the ground, it...

The engine I plan to put it on first is one that was new when it had the conversion head made by Gkamysz installed and test ran. That was a brand new engine when I handed it off to him and he did the...

Norvel diesel heads for the .074

Hi guys, long time no see!

i saw last week that Norvel has a limited quantity of .074 diesel heads on hand and figured one or two of you might like to have one before they sell out like the 1cc...

Norvel .074 diesel head availability

Hey guys,

I logged into the forum for the first time in many eons because I noticed last week that Norvel had listed a "limited" quantity of diesel conversion heads for the .074. I ordered one...

Anyone ever have a Webra .09/1.5cc R/C side exhaust motor?

I've never seen one of these before, while visiting RocketRob 2 weeks ago in San Fran he gave me three of these engines to take home.

Are they good runners? They seem 'sturdy', which is perfect...

A Baby Bee would suit it well if you don't want a throttle, otherwise just about any 1/2A would work well I think. I'd look at a Big-Mig .049/.061 for power and livability.

Yep. Sure did. A 6-6 on 2-3 cells is about right.

I'd be looking to run a 5-5 on two cells for a motor on your KV range. You can always prop up a little if the amp draw is low-going to three cells will likely be too much current.

A Speed 400 is...

An .010 will go significantly faster than 40mph with the right prop on a clean airframe. I've had a lot of luck with cut-down .020 props, you want to take the 4.5-2 and cut it down to about 2.5" and...

I haven't run my MK2's, but word I got back when they were being used at the NATs was that the Mk2 was quite a bit more powerful than the Mk1, and less fragile.

Not when the engine isn't set up for the prop, weather, and fuel..... That's the beaty of the VA-I used one of mine in a helicopter!

The 5.5-2 is a lighter load that one would compare to a typical 'go-fast' prop for the TD. They were ported and timed to make power at lower rpm that made props like the 5-3 square tip viable. Prop...

The VA .049 Mk1 makes a decent sport motor-they draw fuel well on the smaller venturi (larger one doesn't make a lot of difference in sport props) and they needle well. It will perform a little...
