What you need is a Keil Kraft Trueflex, 10x6. 4/11 in 1953 money.

Sad Old Git that I am, I've still got a few somewhere.

Thread: New Laser engines. What do you want?
16/11/2017 18:49:39

Expanding into a new area of the market can sometimes fail big time.

Bolly props in Australia were a successful company exporting model props worldwide, they then ventured into much larger props for the Microlite market.

Unfortunately it proved more difficult the collect the money from the microlite brigade.

Result no Bolly prop company.

I like your pedigree, it's as good as the Austrian naval captain in 'Sound of Music'

Love the colour scheme, a lovely scheme on a lovely model

In the 1980's/1990's there was a five cylinder radial using OS four stroke pots and incorporating a reduction gear reminiscent of full size radials.

I remember it at the shows but never saw one on the field.

I think it was made by the firm that made the Magnum four strokes.

Thread: Full size electric flying
14/11/2017 18:02:01

I saw an electric microlite at our local microlite airfield recently, the sound was just a pleasant ticking noise. There is a commercial one being imported from China, all ready to go, 100 K.

To go back to biplane fighters and their lasting appeal, it came to a point in the 1930s when monoplane airliners were faster than front line RAF biplane fighters.

In the film 'The Blue Max', ace pilot George Peppard met his maker when the new monoplane fighter he was demonstrating suffered a wing snapping off.

Western front, it was all due to that best selling anti war book by a German author, called, 'All Quiet on the Western Front'  

I just love old biplanes and all the details

Correct Percy. It was Power max who produced/marketed the Magnum four strokes as discussed here.

Irvine Engines were the distributers of the Magnum engines not Powermax, see my post above.

Irvine Engines advert RCMW May 1984.

Four Stroke Supremacy with Magnum Engines.

Magnum .91 cu in ...... £145

Magnum 1.80 cu in V Twin ...... £350

Magnum 3.6 cu in Three cylinder Radial ...... £510

Any comments Jon.

Thread: Design & Build Dornier Do 24
12/11/2017 12:02:08

There is a picture of the DO 24 in the May 1984 edition of Radio Control Model World.

Referred to in the magazine as an unusual prototype.

This model is equipped with three Saito 40 four strokes driving three blade props.

No wingspan is quoted but to my eye it looks about 100 inches when looking at another photo of it among other models on the water.

I blame Kiel Kraft, their D8 model was a big seller.

the real legacy of the aircraft was the wings snapping off in the early models which kept the wire braced  biplane soldiering on for another ten years or more.

I'm pleased to see that the drawings refer to Fokker E V (Eindekker Five) One Wing.

Rather than the later name Fokker D8 (Dopple Dekker Eight) Two Wing.
