New Engine Aboard Its New Home

Post  NEW222 on Wed Aug 12, 2015 6:50 pm

So, the day finally arrived.  Today in the mail, I had received an awesome built-for-me engine from a member here.  I was very impressed in the engine that had arrived.  I had a new airframe sitting here that I was going to swap engines between two planes but he had offered up an engine.  Specs that I know are a red fine thread horseshoe backplate, Black Widow crankcase, Sure Start cylinder and a TD head.  It also arrived with a Cox Thimble Drome 5 x 3 black prop and aluminum spinner.  I however had attached it to my new Baby Ringmaster airframe covered in doculam, and 3 coats of Sig clear butyrate dope.  I have a balloon tank already made, but will make another a bit smaller for it and install.  Anyways, without further ado.....

Thank you. First attempt at using this stuff. It is not RC, and will be connected to my hand so I will always know which way is up, and not loose orientation. Oh yeah, I have never flown upside down so counterclockwise it will be. Very Happy

Looks like it was made to fit there, had I known that's what it was going on I would have sent a tank along with it.

You may want to run the pushrod below the elevator instead of above.

Have fun with it.

No worries, the engine alone was more than enough. I can't wait till tomorrow to try the run-in, and listen to it scream. I am just trying to figure out a special balloon arrangement for it, and will probably follow Rusty's method here. Stay tuned.....

Pushrod now in the correct location. Thanks for noticing that. I don't know how I messed that one up. Now for my next question. I am thinking that the balloon should rest on the top of the wing? The engine crankshaft is mounted pretty much on the centerline. I cannot wait now.

Looks Nice New222 , it should be a fast flyer with that power plant . Are you going to use Pressure feed or just the balloon for fuel feed ? I still need more practice with the pressure set up or 3 hands Laughing Hope it does good for you Very Happy Eric

Thank you all for the kind words. I will definately give you a flight report when it happens. I will just use the balloon as a suction feed. I have not yet dabbled in pressure.
