Hello !

I would like to show you the construction drawings of a scooter that I built years ago.
This is a 1.5 cc glow ignition model aircraft engine completely obtained without castings.
My prototype easily spins a 6x3.5 prop at around 15000 rpm.
I hope it stimulates someone to build another one.
Thes are the 3D pictures ...

Do you have any photo's of the finished engine or video of one running, that would be very interesting.

Very good, nice to see a little glow plug motor built and running. Will you fly the engine?
Not this one 1.5 cc , unfortunatlyI am not capable of flying a radio-controlled or control line model airplane .
But I flew another engine ( a 2.5 cc) on one of my control line model , but it was driven by a friend .

OK understand,

Thanks Buzzer it would be nice, I've tried several times controlline but unfortunately for my dizzy !
Last year in October I was in the UK on the Buckminster track for the closing event of the tethercars.... a fabulous place indeed!
 
I know those guys who do the tether cars well, Ollie Monk is a keen model engine tuner and makes a lot of parts.

Also did you see the F2 control line circle at Buckminster, that is very nice.

If you go again, drop me a line and I will come up to Buckminster.
