I used to have a magician 35 in '73-'74 which had the mccoy 40 blackhead. The magician flew great with that engine. The engine was REALLY a good engine at the time. I unfortunately broke a wire in 76 and totaled the plane and bent the crankshaft on the engine. Then I moved on to girls...

In 2012, I was able to purchase a new in box series 21 blackhead 40. Started breaking in the engine. So far, starts and runs just as easily as the old one I had.

Probably build another magician for it!

Opinions:

The Fox .35 is an engine with less cooling than ideal. For this reason more castor is needed to carry off some of the heat.

The McCoy needs more than normal lube because of the metallurgy. One thing that gave McCoy red heads a bad rep was that many of us were using "Testor's 39" fuel...it had insufficient lube. Another is that apparently the last ones were assembled by folks who did not understand fits. You could get a good one or a bad one. Since they were in bubble packs you did not know until you bought it. Sometimes even a lesser one would improve with running if you used a goodly amount of lube.

Eric,
Many a good flyer learned the pattern on a Magician. I had one with flaps, and one without which I added later and learned the pattern with them. Great flying model. Like any of them, once it's trimmed it'll do it all and well. One had a Fox, the other a Stallion.
