Bob, in your caption where this has you curious. I can't see everything too well but that might be a solid state circuit board for running a ignition engine. It looks awfully similar to a Larry Davidson setup. Larry resides in Moneta, Virginia. He made two types of setups where one used a coil and condenser and one that used a coil which had it's own circuitry eliminating the condenser. It would be real interesting if this is the setup.

Bob --
What a wonderful haul!! I learned to fly R/C using a Rand Actuator identical to the one you acquired -- still have mine, BTW.

You may want to give all your nylon goodies a good water boil before using since they likely have dried out and become a bit brittle.

Congrats one your treasure trove.

Thanks Andrew, Ken is a nylon propeller cautioner too.  I only use them when nothing else is available.  I will try to sort that system out of the bunch.  

Flea Market seller was asking $60.00 for the lot, Mark talked him into $30.00.  Seller thought the electronics quite valuable.  To me, the three Cox engines, new in the package glow plugs and Cox heads were worth that.

You got a great deal there!  Hand Shake  The engines alone were worth the $30.


So far this year, flea markets have been a bust. I haven't seen anything Cox related yet. I did find a trashed tube clock radio for 50¢ at a swap meet a few weeks ago.

I pretty much bought it for the tubes and Telechron clock rotor.

Strictly AM. Love that stuff. I would be on that in a minute. My son does clocks, old mantle types. Not many just enough to be interesting. There is some kind of clock/box thingy in my load of stuff. Will have to investigate, but first, those Cox engines.

Hey Robert, Good haul there! It's possible that those white Delrin backplates have fine-thread NVA's. ( Huh... I think the early ones did..) If you remove a needle (for cleaning/inspection etc.) make sure it stays with the backplate that it came out of. They may differ between the three.. or they might all be the same.

Two different fine-thread profiles (shown below)

Flea Market single box - Good stuff, Stupid  stuff, Throw-away stuff Cox_ne10
Flea Market single box - Good stuff, Stupid  stuff, Throw-away stuff Cox_ne11

coarse-thread VS. fine-thread (see below)

Flea Market single box - Good stuff, Stupid  stuff, Throw-away stuff Cox_ne12

Always good to score some new-in-package Cox glow-heads too! Thumbs Up

Three identical slit cylinder engines roddie, three slightly different needles.  Lightly used engines, no burned on castor, one and done maybe. Cleaned up with no scrubbing.  

Flea Market single box - Good stuff, Stupid  stuff, Throw-away stuff P1011210

Pre machined top fin's, no flat cut so I'm not removing them because I'm not a fan of strap wrenches or leather buffers.  

Of the three glow heads only one is good, too bad, one of the bad ones has a "W" coil.

As received:

Flea Market single box - Good stuff, Stupid  stuff, Throw-away stuff P1011217


Cleaned them up good enough to run, after that I'll do a better job probably turning the heads on the drill press and 800 grit w/d paper then mount on display stands.

I can't complete one, no prop machine screw, you would think the PO would have stashed one in his parts.............. Another Bernie/Matt order coming up.  Darn #5's are hard to come by in the proper lengths.

Flea Market single box - Good stuff, Stupid  stuff, Throw-away stuff P1011212

Always get some goo out of the spray bar, shoot some aerosol RemOil up there then blow out with compressed air. Lot's of flipping and compressed air going on.

Full strength Simple Green Rene, 5 minute dip  (an hour or more will darken the case).  Lot's of rotation to distribute, warm water rinse, compressed air blowout.  Usually I finish with a soak in 91% alcohol, but not this time.  Flush with RemOil and more compressed air and flipping until I'm satisfied.  But, these were pretty clean when I started.  

I have become fond of this little fella.  Colorful with a compression attitude.  Smile  Only one of the three that evidently hauled it's airplane around the circle that didn't end in a header.  

Flea Market single box - Good stuff, Stupid  stuff, Throw-away stuff P1011218

All three are "horseshoe" back plates with the "after market" holes.  Anyone know what models Cox used these in?

Ok, so no one is going to venture a guess.  Looked at my Cox products and a single match (slit cylinder) is the Sky Jumper Helicopter, only the black plate is black.  

But surprise, no reed in the above engine.  I was getting ready to run all three when I thought it a good idea to replace the missing case screw first.  Thought, might as well pull the backplate and discovered the reed missing.  Ok, so it's in the case, but no.

Would have been fun getting it to run.  

Flea Market single box - Good stuff, Stupid  stuff, Throw-away stuff P1011219

Back in the Simple Green, and this time it gets an alcohol rinse.  

Flea Market single box - Good stuff, Stupid  stuff, Throw-away stuff P1011220

New mylar reed. Always undecided how to position the reed, 180 or 90 degrees under the ring. Doesn't seem to make much of a difference.

My guess is they were used in the later models. The thick cylinder with dual slits sorta indicate the lasts gasps of the safety design to prevent kids burning their fingers ! The pointy red spinner looks similar to the one one this “Hustler” model from the “Wings” series of crash and burn models !Flea Market single box - Good stuff, Stupid  stuff, Throw-away stuff 07059e10

I have a few other engine with that particular "after-market" back plate but they either have stepped cylinders or thin walled.

Started sorting all the saved stuff into my parts boxes.

These have "ACE R/C" written on the back.  GG servos/actuators I would think.

David, that's a five cell battery that I haven't had a chance to investigate yet. Doubt if it's much good.

Thanks for the pictures and link Lieven, gives me something to go on. Not much good without the transmitter. Switches vice rheostats, really old school.

Rescued some more things out of the "throw-way" box.

Flea Market single box - Good stuff, Stupid  stuff, Throw-away stuff P1011237


Nice Veco clunk tank with an oz of dried up fuel in it. Simple Green soak cleaned it right up. I lost or misplaced this glow plug clip, one of my favorites. Was glad to find two in the box. Someone had wrapped it in the old friction tape, tar soaked fabric that no-one liked. Not easy getting it off. Saved the PO's screwdriver. Don't ask me why.
