Found in a field somewhere in South East Missouri a broken GoPro and pieces of balsa laying nearby.

Sorry, couldn’t help it.  When I saw this for sale on ebay my first thoughts were of our three lettered sail plane, glider, all things aviation, videographer enthusiast friend.  

An interesting piece.  A first generation Enya .09 with Made in Japan cast into the left bearer, custom made fuel tank(s) and some sort of fuel regulator/timer/cutoff? mounted into the sail.  Looks like a Cox fuel tank from the other side.  Any ideas?

Yeah leak city Eric. Or maybe he just wanted to add weight......What is curious is what appears to be two separate fuel tanks.

I agree, it's some sort of timer but I googled Austin Craft and it doesn't look the same. I will know next week when it arrives.

I have an old wing from some sort of R/C aircraft. Actually it's just one half of a wing, deep camber flat bottom in no way suitable for a glider but with a proper fuselage and that pylon Enya .09 on top maybe a control line. Stupid idea, but I would love to see it flying once again in that configuration.

Got it.

On the ramp right now............Post script Spitfi10

Marked "Spitfire" fuel cut-off timer. There's one on ebay for $14, kind of neat.

It has a spring loaded plunger with a conical shaft and an air bleed adjustment at the bottom. The wire clip locks it open until your ready to use it.

When the air bleeds off out of the chamber the spring loaded shaft drops and the cone hits a plunger located on the fuel in/out apparatus shutting off the fuel. Pretty simple and effective.

Spitfire timers worked the best of the old pneumatic timers. I sure wouldn't trust a plane with one today. I have cut off the valve to use with a clockwork Tatone timer.

Yes, it’s more of a novelty than a serious contender. I cleaned it up and put it in my display case. It does work depending upon how far the brass plug is unscrewed, from rather slow to moderately quick.

They are adjustable by turning the screw on the bottom.
