Same $6000 400CC 5 cyl radial engine though? Nice plane you have btw.
Thanks it was my first non glider plane. I love gliders.
Nah he has a 2 bladed prop on a 150cc Twin piston motor. The radials do sound great but at the end of the day I would rather save money whenever possible.
I have flown some single piston gas planes and some nitros and while I love gas engines in my RC trucks/cars... I don't like them as much when it comes to planes. It is such a pain in the ass to transport a gas plane and all of the supplies... I like balsa but I like foam even more especially since companies are making ultra dense epo (almost composite like) with carbon spars and fiberglass rods embedded for strength and tension.
Thanks for the update on the post, CK, I've seen that engine before.
There used to be a company with flat four and six cylinder engines as well, 20 and 30CC, but haven't checked if they're still in production.
