Brillelli Engines

Is anyone familiar with Brillelli engines?. They have a 46CC model that sells for about $300 brand new. Never heard of them before I stumbled across their website. Would like to hear of anyone else's experiences before I buy.

I am thinking of mounting it in a Byrons Pitts. Infact they have a video on their website of the 46 flying 1/3 scale Cristen Eagle and I was impressed.

Thanks for the feedback.

I have not had any experience with their engines. I looked at their site. It looks like that they are selling Modified trimmer and chainsaw engines. A few things to look at: It is a magneto, not electronic ignition; The weight is quite a bit more; Also, if they are converted, then the engine was not orginally designed for aircraft use.

If you are not concerned about weight, and the mods are as good as they say. the cost savings would make it worth while to try.

Thanks wizard, excellent points all. The video on their site I suppose leads me to believe it might be worth a try for than anythings else.

If it's a 46cc it could be a Poulan chainsaw engine.....

I have a 366gt brillelli engine and have not had a single problem with it. Im still breaking it in, but it will start with about 4-5 choke flips and 2 flips off of the choke.

Mine has been flawless, two or three choke flips, pop, flip start.

Runs my 74" EF Yak around like a scalded dog.

I'd buy another one in a heartbeat and trust me I was nervous as this was my first ever gas engine.

That's interesting. You are the first person who has said anything negative about these engines in either of the the major forums.

I have the 366GT and it performs just as well as a DA-50. Anyone who is interested in these engines should feel comfortable in knowing that they run great, produce all the power you'll need, and the customer service is exceptional.

Just my two cents worth.

Total price for the 46GT is $375.00. This includes the muffler and electronic ignition.
