FYI...we have a 12' Telemaster ARF we use as a Candy Bomber at Florida Jets, Monster Planes and Top Gun. We initially had an SV 50cc twin (chinese engine formerly offered by TBM) and the plane was very lethargic whenever we actually got the engine to run. We now have a BME 110 twin in it and it brought the plane to life!

I know we went overboard with our new power choice but my point is a 50cc twin is definitely marginal.

Geez, I didn't expect to start a bar fight asking suggestions about engine choices...
Frank, it was nice to have someone who has owned one of these low price twins chime in. It kind of confirms the advice to stick with DLE, OS, zendoah or one of the other brands.
A 110 on a Tele- In cruising the internet I've seen a few who have done similar, but I've also seen other postings where folks with a 50-60 felt it was overpowered... I know the construction of the ARF is totally different, how much does it weigh?
Anyway, that eases my concern that the 55 would be too much.

Many years ago I had one with a 1.8 or 1.9 cubic inch reed valve engine, forget the name, was made in the late 80's, something tells me World Engines imported it. The plane was covered with Sig coverall and rattle can paint. Flew like the real thing, needed 200' to get up to speed, shallow climb out. More power would not have made the plane fun to fly.

Sounds like you had the smaller Maloney 100 engine? It didn't have any power. He later had the 125 and it didn't have any power either.

No, it was not a Maloney. I think the Maloney's were piston port engines. How much power does it take to fly a 12' Telemaster anyway?

Yes, it could be. But until manufacturers produce a reasonably reliable engine that meets general quality standards they are not available.

I think I'd wait for a comment from Jodi before I touched this one.[X(]

Since this is not a high performance application the industrial based engines are a very good choice. There is a lot of nice Zenoah, Sachs, and Kioritz conversions around for less than even a DLE. Where do you want to send your wealth?

I have a nice customized Zenoah G62 with CH ignition that originated in Japan, a Dolmar 111 - I mean Brison 3.2 that originated in Germany, and a Echo 510/Kioritz/BME50 that originated in Japan. They are all chainsaw based and very reliable. These are very common model airplane gas engines.

The comment I had was do to the fact the MT 70 twins were total pooch's! I'm all for keeping money @ home when I can, I just thought it was funny the MT-70 showed back up is all. I wonder if it will work right this time??

Performance equivalents for all aircraft engines is power:weight.

Well, I picked up the DLE55.

I would say it appears that engine assemblies is together more better constructed than English inside of instruction pages book is.

So, on a related topic, I see safety as a concern and I am going to be using a fiber optic igniton kill.

Should I go with the electrodynamic one or the smart flly, or ? And why?
