FADEC, it's being used on GA reciprocating engines now. Why not just take it a step smaller? (FADEC-full authority digital engine control)

The google is your friend: http://modelenginenews.org/cardfile/gm12.html

Shows parts diagram and some photos of crank details. Could be duplicated with Cox cylinder/piston assy's, but I wouldn't want to build the bottom end with just a bastard file and a bench vise.

Several years ago that same engine (or one identical to it) was on eBay. At the time I also wondered if it could be a runner. I did a layout using stock Cox parts with thoughts of duplicating it and at first glance it looked like it might be possible by using a silver soldered crank assy. But alas, (see sketch) there was a serious fly in that ointment. Sad

hmmm, nothing is impossible. You just need a crank assembly that comes apart or a piston rod that has a cap.

In the picture, one piston looks to be up while the other is down. How can it pull an intake vacuum or compress the fuel/air charge in the crankcase with the pistons working against each other? Am I missing something? Any chance you could take off the tank and show a picture of the rotating assembly? And the venturi too.
Interesting engine. Thanks,
Rusty
His answer, as we know was:
Dear rknrusty,

sorry, i am not going to take the engine apart. i do not know auything else about it. what you see is what you are purchasing.

Possible if you could do the second part as a screw on.

Re: How was this Twin 049 made?

Post  andrew on Fri Mar 23, 2012 4:38 pm

Many times the second web is pressed on --- this is fairly common on multi-cylinder 2 stroke engines with needle bearings on the lower end of the rod.

But, in any case, I agree that the piston postions are problematic. To get the necessary crankcase vacuum and compression, the pistons should be mounted on the crank 180 degrees apart. Induction could be either reed or rotary disk. The picture clearly shows one exhaust port open and the second port covered by the piston. It may be that one of the rods or the rear web has snapped and only one piston functions.

Rotary disk induction may be more appropriate since a reed valve would require that the second throw be fully floating and unsupported. A rotary valve would add some rotational drag, but would support the rear rod journal.

Twins coming out of the woodwork lol! At least this seller is truthful in that they said it doesn't run.

Not sure if it's any better or not...


I guess you could do a threaded insert, can't tell with this one.

Nice engines in that link, but unfortunately the link in the article is dead. I would really like to see how he had made the crank.

They are all custom engines. Opposing cylinders in such a small crank case do not work.

If you want a twin that runs look for a geared twin such as the Selena products geared twin. They pop up on ebay from time to time.

I do not understand the point of this engine. It looks really heavy, and if I wanted something with twice the power of an .049 I would buy a .09 engine. In fact, I would probably buy a .15 engine. The medallion .15 I have is probably the best engine I have used. This seems like a lot of work, for something that is nothing more than a curio. Is there some competition that uses this engine, that I am not aware of? Thanks, Andy
