Dan,
Found these reading old post's, I use my 1cc B38 Barbini, they are a real powerhouse and easy starting to boot. I wish someone would make a good reproduction of them. Mine spins a 7x5 wood zinger at 11,000-12,000RPM (depends on the day) and burns 3mls of fuel in 90seconds.

Dan, Did a lot of flying with the ED Bee and the AM 1.0CC motors. They wern't powerhouses but they sure were steady runners.

Stewart and Dennis,

Yes, these old 1.0cc engines were like faithful puppydogs. Just feed them some diesel fuel and they would seemingly run forever.

Too bad this hurry-up world we live in now doesn't appreciate a good ole faithful little sport diesel. Nowadays you have to have a Norvel or MP-Jets .061 to bore holes in the sky.

One of my first diesels was the old ED Bee MK-1 with amber tank, actually...I had two of them.

I built an airboat out of a cedar shingle and added balsa formers with sheeting on the deck. A razor blade was used for a rudder. That little ED ran so long on a tank of fuel that it ran the entire length of the lake and beached itself, continuing to run until I got to it.

I have a place in my heart for the 1.0cc and have many fond memories of them.

Yes, the Barbini is a great one. I also want a Supertigre G-32 one of these days.

Dan,
If you look at the instruction sheet, The barbini is no slouch, its max power is at 18,000 RPM. I think well up to todays motors. But just try swinging a 7x5 wood on a norvel , I bet it bogs down.
