How should I call the engine? What is his new name?

Post  MauricioB on Mon May 22, 2017 12:30 am

If an old Cox of a model PT19 U-Control, I remove the metal tank of fuel and I place a Surestart Backplate, I also add a Throttle Ring, my question is: How should I call the engine?

I don't think there ever was a "factory original" engine with that configuration, so you'll need to come up with a good name yourself Smile

I think I would call it "Sure Start with a throttle ring" but that is just because of my lack of imagination Very Happy

EDIT: How about "Mauricio Bee" lol!

Very Happy Very Happy Very Happy Hahaha! It would be too much for me ... you have made me smile a lot of friend! ... I think that "Sure Star Custom" would in any case be a possible name, what do you think?

You know KariFs, I'm working on a home regulation ring to get the engine turns down at about 4500 rpm. This is because this model is very small and the engine with an original standard setting ring drops to about 6000 rpm and what happens is that it generates enough traction to continue flying, it sways, but it is fast enough to land, the ideal I estimate, would be about 4500 laps thing that the engine does not pull so much and that way land with less speed ...

I noticed also the landing gear struts Mauricio! Very nice! Have you tried different propellers with the throttle-ring? Is there ground-clearance to run a larger diameter prop.? I have run 8" x 3" wood (Zinger-brand) on my Cox .049 reed-valve engines. I only tried this a few times with my control-line models.. to achieve a slower.. more scale-like flight. I put bushings in the propeller-hub to fit Cox 5-40 screw.. and went flying! It's best to test-run a "seasoned" engine for this. Try a bench-run Mauricio.. (exhaust open..) you will love the sound! My fuel was high (25/35%) nitro though.. and I didn't use a throttle. The engine will fire on every revolution (stroke)... except the needle/mixture adjustment range is smaller. Top engine-speed is reduced.. because the engine is "lugging". After a short time.. it is good the check/reset the piston ball-socket joint. It would be interesting to see how/if the engine will run with a throttle-ring/larger-prop combination. The "flywheel-effect" (inertia) should allow lower engine-speed at low-throttle. Maybe try a 7" diameter "Texaco" prop in the case that the 8" takes away too much power. My thought is; if an 8" prop will fly a control-line model with the same engine.. it should be well capable of flying an RC airplane.

I wish you the best luck!

"parts"

Call it what makes you happy.

I actually kind of agree with Kari. Mauricio Bee has a great ring to it.

In America, a common nickname for "Maurice" is "Mo." You can call it, "Mo Bee." Or Moby, for short.

Ohhh guys, thanks for all your opinions on how to call this engine! .... I like several of the names that you propose ... I will see for which I decide and thus to share with you ...
Meanwhile I show you the acceleration ring I made, it has a thicker section of metal (iron) and this is to maintain or concentrate the cylinder temperature at low turns, (at least that's the idea and it seems that It works!) To see if they like it as it goes:

Very nicely done.  Deserving of a better name than "parts" even.

Very nice! That throttles better than most much larger engines with carburators. Great work!

Hello Kim, that's how I chose that name since Rusty has taught me how my name is produced in your country and how is the way, so that way makes me feel closer to you, I really enjoy being here sharing with everybody.
