This engine has been a wonderful source of motive power for my Acro Wot, having given me many pleasurable flights over three years. But this spring I decided to move my fleet over to electric power so has now been removed from the Acro Wot which now has a far less romantic outrunner stuck on the front. I’m going to keep the engine though in the hope that one day I’ll start to fly IC again.

Not a lot to say at the moment, but this morning I took delivery of a used OS FS81-a motor I bought via the BMFA Classified ad service. It is pretty rare I buy an engine, tending to make do with the four I’ve got. However I really fancied an Acro-Wot and something about that plane just suits a Four Stroke!
I’m waiting for a new prop washer and locknut to arrive, and also a couple of props, then I’ll get the thing started on the bench. Can’t wait!
