I have mentioned the MP Jet .061 line of glow engines here before and was surprised at how many people did not know about them. The .061 started life as a diesel and then became a glow engine. I think that it is an wxceptionally well made little engine. It can have a plain or dual ball bearing supperted crank shaft and a venturi pr throttled carb. The carb can be either single or double needle. The engines are very robust, probably owing to their diesel heritage. They are made by the MP Jet company in Czechoslovakia. I am including a general smattering of pics of some MP Jet .061's.

Here is a PB with the 2 needle R/C carb. It has a great idle and super transition.

This is my favorite. It is an ebay special. It has had the head milled, a Nelson plug adapter installed, the timing changed and the venturi removed and a fine thread NVA installed. It is a real screamer! I do not know if anything else has been done to it.

This is the dual ball bearing version with the two needle R/C carb. It is tired and looks really rough but runs beautifully.

fit90, never heard of them.
After a quick search, found this.
Very interesting. Gotta bone up on my Polish though.

The MP Jet is an excellent engine and I would rank it on par or ahead of the NORVEL. I was glad to see the link Bob posted. I had thought that MP had converted exclusively to electric production, but the catalog appears to indicate that the .061 has been re-introduced. They are not inexpensive, however.

Excellent little engines and you certainly have some fine examples. I heard they're back in production once again. I do know Carlson imports was carrying them and he has them still listed on his site. I tried e-mail several times with no luck. Ken

They are back in production. I believe they are only offering the ball bearing .061 glow though. The last time I checked, which was probably a year ago, they were approximately $150.00 US each. I haven't looked since then. I think there is a link on RCU to the website of a dealer. I just got lucky and purchased two NIB .061 PB venturi engines from an English dealer. They are torquey engines and can easily and comfortably handle a seven inch prop. This makes them very versatile. They are heavy, though.

By the way, Ed Carlson is a great guy to deal with. He introduced me to MP Jets seveeral years ago. If he does not respond to an email try the phone number on his website. He is a very nice man and really knows his stuff.

Hi Bob, this is great news. I've always been a fan of the MP Jet. I don't own one but a fellow club member does. I was really impressed by the engine . The Shuriken in the pic is mine it's a .051. I have another that's .049 and I do use it. The one in the pic is just one for admiring. My runner is in need of bearings. These are a bit hard to find. Although Boca does carry them I'm told the performance isn't quite as good as the originals. They're actually quite heavy. The Shuriken weighs as much as a Tee Dee.09. I want to experiment with my runner a bit more. I truly believe the APC 4.6 x 3 will get the engine in the happy zone. Ken

Ken -

You might want to give RC Bearings a look. He has a number of bearings sized for our usage, in both English and metric.

I've used Boca for engine bearings and for other applications, but they, like most other US companies, have been pushed into the Chinese market, consequently, quality is most usually suspect at best and poor at worst.

I have the BB diesel version that Carlson offered with both throttle and venturi. It is an excellent runner. I believe that setup was ~$75.00 at the time. Not sure I would pay $150.00 for one.

Carlson is best reached by phone. If he's there, he will answer. I called one Sunday morning expecting to leave a phone message for an order and he picked up. He was on his way to go flying I believe, but he took the order.

Nice topic Bob.
Wish I knew a couple months back when
Looking for an alternative to the slightly
'Lacking' throttled KB Old/timer combo.
I was surprised to find that even the Thunder
Tiger GP 07 lacked a low end needle
Which is why I plumped for the td09
In the end.
Very Happy

For those in europe you can find both the MP jet engines and plenty of spare parts, dedicated engine mounts, Al spinners etc. here; topmodel.fr

The Thunder tiger 07GP does have a low end adjustment, it is an adjustable airbleed. That's more than what OS bothers to do on their .10 engines...

I wish we could get cool spinners like this for our Coxes. That defunct Cox customization site in North Carolina is the only place I've ever seen them. I forgot the name.

Tim Wiltse was responsible for making those spinners. He's been MIA for some time and hasn't been responding to e-mails. I really like what he does for Cox engines. Ken

Tim Wiltse did some of the nicest anodizing I've ever seen, and
his lightened reedie cranks and spinners were a thing of beauty.
His and Dale Kirn's parts are my most valuable.
