The best use for chainsaw motors is in the clearing of trees, so as to make a new flying field.

Most of the older RC gas engines were from chainsaws. Quadra 35 and 42 were Frontier/TML saws and the 50 was from Pioneer chainsaw.

Chainsaw engines are traditionally either a two-stroke gasoline (petrol) internal combustion engine (usually with a cylinder volume of 30 to 120 cm3) or an electric motor driven by a battery or electric power cord. In a petrol chainsaw, fuel is generally supplied to the engine by a carburetor at the intake.
