Pat King sells plans and kits for the Micro Ringmaster. He can be found on stunthanger.

You could also just scale down a set of plans.

That micro Ringmaster Stunter is almost tempting enough to pull my NIB .010 out of the box and run it......Almost! Maybe an ebay used but not abused runner.

There will be some rules just as with the first traveling engine.

I agree, there will be no flying rags. Easy way to hurt yourself, ruin the engine or even loose it. If you don't have a model for it or don't have the flying experience, you're better off bench running it. With the .010, there's going to be stricter rules. I have some replacement parts for the .010 but if we throw a rod or blow the crank, that will be it. Because of the tight tolerances, I also don't think the engine should be disassembled and reassembled by each person. If the engine should need to be disassembled for any reason, only those with the knowledge and experience in handling these precision engines should do it.

Here it is. The crankcase is a bit faded but it has excellent compression. New tank, carb body, backplate mount and included a new glow head.

This'll be fun, I'm looking forward to it. Better put me a few places down the list so I can build a plane for it. What kind of W/S and weight should we build for it? I think I'll build a micro Primary Force and recess the engine like I did on my speed Mustang.

Jason,

Very generous offering, I assumed you would settle on an Estes. That .010 is going to get some excercise.

There is fun ahead.

The engine came from the large .010 ebay lot I bought a few years back. No Estes era engines would have been considered. I'm mean but not evil.
