So some times, the search is over almost before it begins.  I barely got into the place before my eyes fell upon this beautiful, barrel throttled Medallion .09RC that looks like it just fell out of it's box.

Listed as an .049, I initially got excited about adding a throttled engine to my Goldberg Ranger, but it'll do just as nicely on my Jetco Navigator (if I ever get around to restoring it).

Then, on the same table, I spotted this!

I figure that, right off the bat, my labored breathing/panting, and slight wobbling pretty much blew any bargaining power I might have had.  But, for my 75 bucks, I also got an OEM glow head, fuel tank, backplate, Cox .049 glowhead, OK Cub .049 glow head, a rough but serviceable glow plug wrench, and even some teflon diesel head disks, all piled in a plastic Cox display lid.

This took me down to a few dollars and pocket change for some great club chili, and this:

One of my excuses for getting bleary-eyed at swap meets---you often got to look HARD for some of these "hidden-like-an-easter-egg" treasures!  Maybe "treasure" is a little bit of an exaggeration for this item, but I needed one, and there it was, hiding with Barbie and her Swamp Buggy!!

So, we're due for some engine running!

P.S.  Forgot to mention that I "scooped" fellow Breezy Hill Flyer Leo on both these engines!  BWAAHAAHAA!!!

I too find it tough to pass up on Cox engines, even when I don’t need them. I am glad you are happy with your purchases, looks like they will be put to good use!

Score, Kim! I have one of those Med .09s with the throttled spray bar but it's missing the muffler/baffle portion.

Yessir. The spraybar is on the engine without the miffler that connects to it. Haven't tried to run it like that yet.

Yep, should run it to see how she goes as is. It's in a long line of engines I need to experiment with. Seems when I finally get time to play, I always end up running my "go-to" engines so I can focus on flying instead of tinkering with engines all day. So many unfinished projects, but ai sure love this hobby! I actually have a handful of good-condition Med .09s that are ready to go, so it's hard to sidestep and play with the orphans. With that said, I would like to complete the throttle assembly on it someday and get it flying.

Yep, I saw that too, Eric. The drive plate is a dead give away.
Shows it's a .09 or a .15.
