Joining a new range of attractive engines from Evolution, this 26cc unit features a state of the art electronic ignition system compatible with 2S 7.4v Li-Po batteries and a Walbro carburettor. The engine suits models in the 1.20 or 1.80 size category and has a low profile cylinder head design with a side-mounted spark plug that allows it to fit inside smaller cowls.

The updated carb’ design has a spring-loaded choke that opens automatically when the throttle is moved open so there’s no need for separate choke servos or linkages. Designed for models with traditional beam mounts the engine brings clean and economical operation to any 1.20-1.80 sized sport or scale aeroplane.

Other engines in the new range are 40cc, 50cc and 80cc size along with a range-topping 152cc flat-twin (boxer).
