It was a .15 no Name chinese made engine. NON-RC. So it was set at full throttle and turn it loose. I found it to be a SUPER fun R/C air boat, and spent many hours running it on a small fresh water lake in my late teens! Not sure what the speed was but it fast enough to be fun!

Back in storage in Australia I still have that engine (I live in the US now), I should call up my father and ask him to dig it out and ship it over. Best little diesel engine you could but for $40 AU.

Cheers
