Wen-Mac .049 Platform
I am curious to know if anyone has ever flown the Wen-Mac .049 platform. The engine has a control on the exhaust outlet, which makes me think that the engine acceleration was controlled.
This model caught my attention and if anyone has experience, I would like to tell me about it.
Looks very interesting, it would be great to see a video.
I would also like to see the butterfly or acceleration valve in detail, it seems to be cylindrical and flat at the same time, rotating, but I don't have many photos available...thanks in advance.

Hola Mauricio,

Esta es la primera vez que he visto esa. No tengo ninguna experiencia nada con esa plataforma voladora del soldado por Wen-Mac.
This is the first time I have seen it. I have no experience with the soldier flying platform by Wen-Mac.

Hi Mauricio, Sorry that I can't translate the instruction sheets.. but I did find some photos of the engine detail.

Below 3 photos may be of a different engine.. but looks like a similar throttle.. and it has the cable for recoil-starter.

Thank you very much Jorge and Roddie for all that information!..Roddie, I know that you are fully involved in your project and you have made time to look for this information!...thanks friend!
So I deduce that:
1) the device flew limited by a rope, preventing it from rotating due to torque.
2) the acceleration of the motor was controlled with another rope, allowing the platform to be raised and lowered or kept at a constant height.
3) you could move and thus the platform would go from one place to another accompanying you.
It must have been quite interesting to fly, difficult too!, a great challenge... I wonder if many people enjoyed it, managed to fly it or had problems maneuvering it.
It largely depends on the reliability of the engine!
The throttle butterfly system placed in the exhaust outlets of the engine is beautiful, this application could be very useful in an R/C model.

Hi Brad! Thanks for the video. Yes I saw this video a few times, I suppose it must have been something similar only with height control and being able to move it as the pilot walked... Quite an adventure my friend!....thanks!

Now I understand this flight of Jim Walker... I have looked at it many times, because I did not understand why he used both hands, now I realize that he used his left hand to control the engine and the right hand to control the elevator ...the motor had speed control. Of course, you probably already knew it, I realize it now!
