MT 70 twin, smooth, light powerful 50cc upgrade

I ordered one of these after reading the posts on RCU. It's spinning a Zoar laminated 23X8 @ 6700 rpm and weights 3.26 lbs. Boot to boot measurement of 270mm on the straight plug version and 245mm on the angle plug version.

It does run smoother than the DL 50cc single saving my airframe and servos. With only a 2 oz increase in weight over most 50cc engines and a cost of less than $500.00 it should be an easy swop.

MT should be nice...have seen some videos with pilot-rc ariplanes and looks good. Also Tony offers then so should be something to trust.

That does look interesting. If it makes enough power over a DA / DL 50 to justify the added weight I might give one a shot on my TOC Extra if it will fit in the cowl.

3.26 lbs. is not bad at all for a 70 twin, i haven't seen any real world rpm's on it yet,just the manufactor number of 7000.

Hi,

there is a older 3w 70 cc twin which is a great running engine. Weight is 2.95 lbs and hp is around 6. I have 3 and I use them for a 50 cc replacement in planes. They are great. If you watch, these engines are also sold in the web market place.

they also have 3W quality, not chinese quality.

I sold mine. Ran sweet but weighed more like 6lbs. Put out slightly more than a modern 50cc.

Hoping to get the angled plug version stuffed into my GP 27% Extra. Whole lotta motor, in a little plane. Target weight is still 16.5. If i can do this will be an animal.

Re: MT 70 twin, smooth, light powerful 50cc upgrade

Guys.....after talking to Jody over at Valley view just a couple days ago.....you may want to pick your airframe carefully.....because it may not fit! In a bigger 30% ( 50cc bird) it will.....something like a 3DHS AJ Slick...but not in something like a TOC , Pilot RC , aeroworks and so forth 30% bird....the cowls are to small.

You could have the top of the spark plug boot stick out a little if you didn't mind....and i'm with you....I think it's a great little motor! I wouldn't mind trying one myself.

I haven't ran a 24" prop yet on my BME 58 , but it'll turn a Vess 23A at 7440 and a Vess 23B at 7200. I think this new little 70cc twin may be right on par with my 58 , or maybe a slight bit stronger. BUT....it's really cool it's a twin.

wish more companies would make these smaller twins as well.

Re: MT 70 twin, smooth, light powerful 50cc upgrade

i don't think the mt70 is going to out spin the bme58 from some of the numbers i have seen.i also get in the 7400 range with the bme58 i have with the vess 23-a a.i haven't seen any numbers close to this with the mt70,only in the 7000 range with the vess 23-a.i seen the manufactor of the mt70 saying 7000 on a 24" prop,that yet remains to be seen.
but who knows,only time will tell.
