    Default Extremely nice engine

    I visited a living legend today. He has some tremendous working skills. He makes these engines, 36 cc 4 hp boxer with starter, double magnets and real spark plugs!



    I saw one on a bench with a compressor. My jaw totally dropped and THEN is said "turn around, you have another 50 behind you".

    He has a RC Super Cub with GPS controller and remote camera. He starts and then the plane takes of at a given route by itself. At the same time you watch the camera from the air field with a cup of coffee. All I can say is that the RC community has evolved a bit since I had a RC...
    On the way home I started thinking of the construction of a Vanagon in perfect scale. I need to retire, need more time!

    It's a proportional relation between the want-to-have-feeling and how big your wallet is.
    The number of hours put into every engine, I'm not surprised though.
