Cleaned up pretty good , it funny you got less rpms from a smaller APC prop. Small Cox Logo I like TP and the HBs really made a gold for himself !

Thanks Eric, the COX 5x4 prop is probably flexing at high rpm, while the APC holds its shape...so I guess the lower rpm with the APC is related to its unbent shape...

A while ago I promised myself to ”kick the habit” of buying engines all the time. It wasn’t too difficult as I don’t do eBay, and it seems I have already accumulated most of the surviving loose Cox engines in Finland lol!

However, there was a deal that an older fellow and I had been haggling on and off for a couple of years... At first our ideas of the price were pretty far away from each other, and I always made the point that ”sure, you will get this or that amount at the bay, but this is what I am willing to pay”. Well, a couple of times he just said ”fine” and that was that.

Now, again, after a year or so of silence, he started pestering me again, with his ”final offer”, and threw in some loose parts. Well, we discussed a little more and he knocked another 10€ off Smile  We made a deal, I think at a fair price. Well, this is what I ended up with:

I don’t have much use for the starter spring sets as they are for hex drive plates, and I only have one 010 Tee Dee that I am not going to fly, so the propellers are sort of extra too. But the stuff I actually bought this lot for is here:

My first bubble-pack engine Smile The Tee Dee looks and feels like new too. Plus an unused diesel head and crank.

Congrats Kari ..That Golden Bee features a thin wall cylinder so must be an early one..is there any Litho mark on the bottom left or right of the backside of the pack? That may indicate the year the engine was made..the TD051 will always feel like new..I tried to overuse one and it outdid me Very Happy Only I get older but it still works like new.. lol!

Very nice score you got there. The Golden Bee is very nice as well as being in the blister pack.

Thanks guys!

Andras, unfortunately there’s no litho Mark or other indication of the date of manufacture. The Golden Bees, Pee Wees and Babe Bees (maybe some others too) came to the store in ”cards” of six, and it looks like mine was the top left based on the other three sides having marks of the perforation, and a white stripe on top edge, part of the ”main label” on top edge. Just my guess. The litho mark was probably on one of the bottom row engines only.

Attached is a picture of a dealer catalog I got from a fellow who once had the chance to visit the factory in 1978 (there’s a date stamp on the catalog, ”JUN 20 1978”). On one page there was a picture of the cards.
