    F-22 PTS Evolution Mystery Motor

    I'm going to call this one a Mystery Motor. I'm to understand it could be anywhere from 40 to 50 size, and they have no identifying marks on them. Motor came on the F-22 airframe that I purchased for such a low price I "had" to have it.

    Broke the motor in on 25% Castor and 10% Nitro. RPM run was on 10% Nitro with a healthy dose of the Sig 25% Caster mixed in.

    2 Blade 10x6 Fingali. I don't know where the prop came from, however again thats what was on the motor when purchased.

    14,800!

    RPM was measured with a Tower Hobbies Tachometer. +/- 10% ????? Again I don't know how accurate they are.

    Don't know about you but I'm impressed!

    RE: F-22 PTS Evolution Mystery Motor

    Huh? Doesn't it look just like an Evo from Horizon?

    Thanks,

    Ernie

    RE: F-22 PTS Evolution Mystery Motor

    Mystery as in displacement. It's obviously the Evo that comes in these "RTF" models. Like I said in my first post Horizon has changed the displacement on these motors, without any way's of knowing. Short of disassembling the engine that is.

    I did not want to say it was a 40, when in fact it could be as large as a 52.

    Yes it is a ultrathrust muffler. Was going to go on a OS 55ax but figured would see how this motor would respond. The muffler alone added about 1200 RPM.

    Sorry for any confusion.

    RE: F-22 PTS Evolution Mystery Motor

    The Evolution PTS trainer engine in the F-22 and P-51 (originally the Alpha trainer engine ) with the lower case a on the head is .455 cu. in.

    I've seen 14,000 to 14,100 on 15% Powermaster and Tower muffler, APC 12x4 at approx. 500' above sea level.

    That is virtually identical to my TT .46 Pro, and O.S. .46 FX w/ the same muff. prop and fuel.

    ORIGINAL: proptop

    That's good info. Do you have a source I could verify?

    Weren't some in the 50 size as well? If so how would you identify them?

    RE: F-22 PTS Evolution Mystery Motor

    All of the Evo engines have their displacement markings on the side of the head...except the Alpha / PTS trainer engine, which is the .455

    The Alpha .455 was the first Evolution glow engine back in '03..it was installed on the Xtra Easy 2 and Alpha trainers...then shortly after, they introduced the .40 and .46

    IIRC the .36 and .61 were next...the .52 and 1.00, now the new 1.20

    RE: F-22 PTS Evolution Mystery Motor

    Ok, so with no numerical marking I am to gather it's a 45? That works for me.


    Hope to get the model in the air this week. Despite the fact it's turning to me some good RPMs I hope to replace it with the new 60NX and go up 1 in pitch to a 10x7.
