Relative performance of "stock" Cox .049 reedies Empty Relative performance of "stock" Cox .049 reedies

Post  Jim Howell on Thu Aug 15, 2019 11:10 am

I am trying to find out about the relative performance of the many different named Cox .049 reedies.  I've searched this thread using "performance" as my search parameter.  I get a significant number of interesting threads about improving the performance of specific models, but am having difficulties trying to find relative comparisons of stock engines.  I would appreciate it if someone could point me to a place where this type of info might be available.  TIA.

Context for my question is that over the years, I have acquired a variety of different "named" versions.  Why, I haven't a clue other than nostalgia.  Some are 50+ year old engines - mostly gummed up - from my youth, some from friends getting out of the hobby, some from eBay, and some from current suppliers.  However, I'm getting slowly sucked back into small 1/2A C/L models from Black Hawk hollow logs, to Goldberg re-dos, to more modern designs.  While I could bypass my Cox hoard, I'd rather try to find some usage for my nostalgia hoard.  I have the following versions that I have listed in my perceived order of performance from lowest to highest:

Baby Bee
Golden Bee
Black Widow
Product Engine
Killer Bee
Venom

and something from CIE called a "Stinger" that I have no clue as to it's performance.  (I bought it 'cause the case had been anodized (?) to an orange color.    Smile )

Any insights, objective or subjective would be appreciated.

TIA,
Jim Howell

Thanks for the vector to Hepperle's site.  I did not know about that site.  I found a wealth of information there.  Thank you!

It mentions the other sizes as well. There is nothing on the product, Killer Bee or Venom variants.

Yes, I spent some time looking at the descriptions of a variety of Cox products. Yes, I noticed that nothing showed up on these variants. Sad Plus, I noticed that there was some discussion about the later Killer Bees being a step back from the earlier versions. Don't know which version I've got. Got to do some more investigation.

Thanks
