String Trimmer Conversion
Conversion of both the long shaft versions (engines with built-in clutches in the weed-eater) and the short shaft engines are simple and fun. We supply all the parts that you will need to get your engine mounted on your favorite R/C plane and go flying. Our instructions tell you step-by-step how to make your weed-eater into a great airplane power plant. The 720R and the 725R are both long shaft engines. We now also sell True Turn Spinners!
We now sell new converted engines using the C.H. Electronics after market ignition systems. These systems are just fantastic! You can get about 8% more RPM than the magneto versions due to the fact that they can be adjusted to maximum timing position. You cant do that with the Magneto systems. The weight is reduced from 58oz. To 49 oz. Plus muffler and the 4oz. ignition system. You can adjust these to run in either direction! Many of the JAGUAR 31cc engines have been sold to guys making twin engine airplanes. They are SUPER!
Our engines are flying all sorts of planes from ¼ scale Cubs on floats to Citabrias, Stinger 120s, PT-19s, Goldberg Sukhois, Pip Dream trainers, Huskys, Midwest 202s, 300s and most planes from 68 to 110 wingspan depending on the wing loadings. The lighter the wing loading, the better. We are still flying the 82 sport plane weighing 14 pounds that we use in the California R/C Marathon event each May. It flew for 185 miles nonstop on only ½ gallon of gas for a 3rd place trophy! Team Infinity flew 235 miles with their specially designed airplane. We used a 16X12 APC prop on the flight and the engine did not miss a beat. Most planes designed for a 108 two stroke or 120 to 150 and up four stroke engines will work fine for the MTDs. The new 80 Bridi Kaos and Killer Bee kits are inexpensive and perfect for these engines as well as some of the Bud Nosen Kits. Get you Ryobi up and flying .. You will really enjoy these great gas engines!
