A question of terminology

Post  batjac on Fri Sep 02, 2016 2:28 pm

I was just thinking, I've always referred to the more common Cox engines as Bees, TeeDees, Medallions, Postage Stamps,or Product Engines.  "Bee" is the term I use generically for any tank backed engine.  But can a product engine be called a "Bee"?

I got your point Mark and will rename my COX Engine of the month entry....the reason I named this engine Bahama Bee was the alliteration of Bee and Bahama....once I was told on CEF the sexy names and good quality of the photo on a common engine may earn you as many votes as you would earn with a real speciality engine..not that I expect any better results with any name or any entry I make  Very Happy

Good point Mark. But there is always the exception to the rule:

Sorry, I wasn't referring to your entry.  I was just musing about terms in connection with my thoughts on putting a Cox Bee on a Walker FireBee.  Since the Walker Firecracker uses an external tank, it would be preferable to use a Cox engine that takes an external tank and a throttle ring, like on the Cox throttled Mustang.

Or....  Maybe a Medallion .049 with the throttle ring from the Cox Mustang.  Maybe a Medallion 049 would be equal to a .065 Firecracker.  It wouldn't be  variable throttle like the original FireBee, but it would idle and fly full throttle.

No, no way a Medallion could be termed a "Bee". Nevermind. Stupid idea.
