Two Sachs 4.2

One Zenoah G-62

One Zen. G-26

Two BMA 26

One Fox 3.2

Edited to add: Thanks Jim, I forgot a few: Out in the Barn, there is a 1.20 (forget the name but distributed by the late World Engines) that I forgot plus TWO G-38s in addition to above. Also there are a number of GAS engines in the way of Super Cyclones, Anderson Spitfires, and one Bantam .19 old time spark engines.

I have one, used to be from a weed whacker, don't know who made it, or the size. I had a buddy turn the flywheel down and make a hub. Runs good but I haven't optimized the props size yet.

Quadra 42 ... grounded due to gross radio interference.
US 41 ... on CH ignition.
Echo 21 ... w/electronic ignition, converted from something.
Quadra 50 ... used, but I have not started it yet.
Want a G62.

Never enough, and haven't flown a glow engine in close to 10 years.

Exactly two, G23PUM and a hybrid G26PUM. Neither of them is in a boat right now, I still like the smell of burnt castor too much.
