Default Magnum Pro SE 61

Recently acquired a Magnum Pro SE .61 and have been looking through older mags for info on this engine and parts availability without any luck. Anybody know when this model came out, how they ran, and whether it was a copy of any particular OS engine. Thanks, Brian

Typically, the Magnum engines with the PRO designations, were Thunder Tigers. That was a few years ago.

Enjoy,

Jim

Wood&fabric,

Agree.

Looked hard for any info I could dig up as the one I bought had no manuals. Responded in the other thread too. It seesm to be a very nice motor. The quality seems to be very good for an older motor that was way cheap. Mixed reviews from others. Seems folks either loved em or hated them.

As a relative newcomer to this I can say it was no harder to set up than my OS .40 in my trainer. I can say I think I will like mine a lot.

Let me know how yours works out.

I dug this old plane out of the graveyard and refurbished it... I had this NIB Magnum in stock so I put it on. It started on the first hand flip

This plane is a scratch build from plans about 30 years ago. It's called the Yellow Bird, and it was a seaplane but built as a regular plane.
This is the 4th engine in the plane... wore the others out with unknown hundreds of flights.... never crashed.. It flew too good.

.. Thanks, hellcat... I checked them out... the supply is getting low, but it's the only game in town.

I've always been a fan of Magnum engines... great quality... at a great price.
