I stumbled upon this guys blog where he built a radial engine for use in a RC? Plane.

Link is for the initial startup. Great video at bottom of page.

I love seeing the exposed push rods.

So , it sounds like it is a 2 cycle , burning oil & alcohol ?

Those exposed push rods might be problematic in our dusty environment , especially when landing the RC plane on dirt / grass .

Definitely looking into a gasser as my next plane. My only balsa is J-3 Cub but I went electric with it. Would love to start with a 10cc to get the feel for it.
