I have wanted to pull the trigger on one of these many times. I wish I did 3 months ago, due to exchange rates they are now 50% more.

Re: About Moki Radial / RCS RAdial engines,,,

Hey,,, Eagleburger, thanks a lot,,,, yes I went to the website and saw the prices,,, wow, never expected them to be quite that high!!! It hurts!!! Got some airplanes kits (a big Gee Bee Y Senior Sportster and a Pitts biplane) waiting for such a jewel of an engine as this Moki/RCS radials are but I'm gonna have to wait,,, still have two kids going through college right now,, and their expenses have to come first. This devaluation of the dollar sure is hurting every one of us, badly. I was wondering, is RC Showcase the only supplier in the USA of big radial engines,,, do you know of other suppliers?? I would certainly like to check that out,, other available big RC radial engines, that is. If you have any information about this please pass it along,,, I'm really highly interested in getting a good radial engine,,, but at more reasonable prices. Thank a lot fellows.

By the way Eagleburger, are you flying that beautiful Gee Bee R3 model?? You have a photo of it on your reply,,,, I love those big Gee Bee scale models. If you do have this model, how does it fly,, is it too hot to handle?? The R3 is a model that just became available from Hobby Lobby, if my memory serves me right,,, is that the one you have?? - Mike H.

Have one installed in my Balsa USA Stearman - a 215 and also just picked up a Genesis 1/3 Waco that has a 215 in it as well.

Had a chance to pick up 3 totally reconditioned and guaranteed 215's from RCShowcase for $2,500 apiece........hemmed and hawed to long and they sold quick......should've jumped on 'em when I had the chance.

Due to the low volume in sales numbers there aren't many radial engine manufacturers around. Those sales numbers, along with the complexity, adds to the pricing.

The RCS 215 is an awesome engine and well worth having. I suspect the other sizes are as well.

Na dont have one. I will build myself a giant scale size one day.

I have been tempted to get a Saito 450 radial. They are relitively cheap locally at the moment.

Going to utube and have a listen to some. I love the sound.

Re: About Moki Radial / RCS RAdial engines,,,

Hi! in Italy we started to made an experience about radial engine in 2000 (ten years ago)
Now after few prototipes engine we start to build a number of beautiful (and powerful) radial 7cylinders. We think our radial are comparable and powerfull the same of moki or other engines.
The reason is inside engine, because our radial have the same displacement of other 5cylinders engine but with also 2 cylinder. In small displacement (like model engine) the powerful and balanced combination is 7 cylinder. 9 cylinder engines is more flexible but also more heavier and more rotation inertia inside... 5 cylinder haven't same torque of 7...
For example, 5cylinder outside a canopy isn't realistic.
These are part of reasons because we made 7 cylinder.
Now we could buy on http://www.moki-italia.com/ the old 90cc constellation glow or gas.
Now we start with big gas engine 150cc with electronic spark control, the same control of single two stroke engines. It start with a finger
http://www.slengines.com/

this my friend Louis with the new 150cc on test that's constellation 90cc on 1/3 scale bucker
Thank you, best regards.

Re: About Moki Radial / RCS RAdial engines,,,

I should start machining new RADIAL engines within 1-2 months. Maybe will be an option to you. Check my web site at www authenticscale com Go to Exotic Scale (the others are not yet available). I am starting with the engines designed by Martin O. Use the E-mail for questions. Meanwhile, I think that for Moki you should call RCS by phone. Good luck on spare parts. Best wishes,

Running a 250 in a Waco YMF-5 to be maidened as soon as the trailer is finished to transport the plane. Ran the motor on the bench and was very impressed with it, very easy to start runs beautifully and easy to set the carb. If you dont get goose bumps when you hear this beauty run there is something seriously wrong with you

Also have a look at http://www.vogelsang-aeroscale.com/radials.html The Valach 420cc and 800cc are works of art, wouldn't mind a 800 but at $8500 I can build another 40% Waco or maybee a 40% Gee Bee Z, Mmmm.........

OMG those authentic engines are awesome......I can imagine actually building a P-51 big enough to handle that Merlin.
