Hi all Passed by a yard sale coming home from work today and couldn't help but stop by it and ended up with this Fox 25 RC C/L conversion for 5 bucks!
Yard sale find! Fox_2510
He also had several other engines as well including an O&R front rotor .29 which I would of gotten too but 5 buck was all the cash I had on me at the time. They are going to have it tomorrow as well so i may go by there again and pick up a couple of the others too.
Anyway it looks good and turns freely plus has great compression. It has some time on the case (Tiny bit of slop which he "said" was from use) but I don't see why it wouldn't run good. We will see!

Lol yup they do, and as far as planes go I don't have a model for it YET I plan on finding a home for it but I'm not quite familiar with this engine and its an RC engine that has been converted so I got to play with it (make noise lol) to figure out it's manners before I decide on what model to mount it too. i'm gonna try and get a test run on er tomorrow and try a few different props.

I think both the CL and RC versions used the same crankcase. My RC version had a "wet nose" from new. They had a rep for being excellent runners in their day...easy to start, good power.

You have a great find.

I have a control line version and it came with the RC on the case. The muffler that came with that engine is also desirable. It fits Fox .35 stunt and has less restriction than the stock blimp style that came with the 80's to current 60th case. They fit the exhaust stack due to the casting wrapping around it. George shows this muffler in his pic. It uses the over and under holes. A poor method to retain such a large piece. The through holes also go into the liner which can push on it and ruin it.
I wouldn't say that they're as user friendly as a Fox .35. They want to run with lighter pitch props and they want to turn up a bit. Prop size in the 9x4-9x5-9x6. I was never a fan of the straight up stack. I always felt this causes more problems than good. It tends to create a negative vacuum and I cut them and angle into the wind. Same bolt pattern as a Fox .35. All Fox's aside from the .15 share the same bolt pattern. The O&R engines also share the same bolt pattern as the Fox .35. Ken

It's an OK engine. I used one on my Super Clown for a season. It didn't pull as hard as a Fox .35 and weighed only marginally less.

Like Ken said it likes to run up and doesn't really 4-2. I ran mine without a muffler and it was loud. Much louder than the .35 it replaced. It started and ran well.

I put a .35 back on, but I could have left it.

Ya gotta love yard sales and flea markets for values. Interesting engine for five bucks Bandit.

My son called me this morning from a flea market - "Gonna make your day Dad" an intact Black Widow on a pod mounted on what was left of an airframe for four dollars. Way to go Mark.

Nice find! Engines don't show up at the flea markets and garage sales around here too much. The best bet of finding one is at the Back To The 50s Car Show Swap Meet/Flea Market, that's were more tools, garage crap, old toys and other good stuff comes out. I keep forgetting about the RC swap meets. Did you make it back for the O&R and the other engines?

Thumbs Up
