I loved this little engine; it was the first I ever owned. It spent most of its time installed in the front of a Keil Kraft Phantom control liner.

Specifically bought with the the RC carb because there were plans to put it in something RC. Although thinking back I’m not sure it ever did live up to it’s full potential, spending it’s whole life with the RC throttle wired up so it was permanently open in the Phantom. Of which sadly no pictures exist. When I brought it out of storage it needed a new needle valve assembly, so I took the opportunity to pick up a CL carb for it too, so now I have the choice.

2015 Update

After getting this going again it had a short life flying in a newly built KK Phantom, it (along with the rest of my engines) are seeing a bit of retirement due to me moving to an all electric hanger.
