Default Super Tigre .29


I just bought a 20 year old NIB Super Tigre .29 engine. What can anyone tell me about it? It was an impulse purchase that I thought I could use for RC combat...

TIA for your help.

5) Alternatively, you might try placing an ad on one of the internet lists such as rec.models.rc.***, and some of the many other r/c related sites to attempt to purchase the item which interests you.

6) You might try swap meets, club sales, estate sales that list hobby equipment, etc.
