Hi, the engine sounds very healthy. Is it already available ?

Please provide pictures of the engine and maybe the following info:

1- Weight of Engine
2- Weight of Muffler
3- Weight of ignition + Voltage rating and if it can be used directly with Li-Ion or will require voltage regulation.
4- What warranty your company is offering, i.e. 3 years 5 years please specify
5- Recommended prop for each engine
6- Price of the 2 models you have on offer and how an order can be placed for those interested

Maybe you should consider sending one of your engines to one of the guys here on FG to independently test the engine and give us a full review as we much rather have independent reviews from knowledgeable guys we know and trust over manufacturers product specs.

Good Luck !

Well, we do need more engines in the 85cc. range. More information would be nice.
Was the cylinder 40% more to produce or the engine with the ceramic cylinder would be 40% more?

If you want a REAL test, send me a 176cc and we will test it in a USRA giant scale P51 race plane...We will put one of our methanol and nitro fuel systems on it with a bigger reed valve..Our current ZDZ 180s are turning over 9000 in the air @ about 240 mph,,,verified by an Eagle Tree system...
It will have to compete with DA 170s, ZDZ 180s, ZDZ 210s, and Aerrow 200s...Nothing tests an engine like a race plane, real world testing...Any defects will show up very quickly...
Check out the planes at www.usrainfo.org

Any chance that the final design will have angled plugs?

Just a suggestion, don't paint the cylinders.Raw cylinders cool better, the paint traps the heat.

Just some info Fergus and his father were with TMM engines and they are now going out on there own with new and improved engines. I have been dealing with fergus for along time now and he has always taken care of me on the TMM engines witch are awesome engines but I am sure they are going to raise the bar on the new engines. I have also told Fergus we need a 120 cc and a 240 cc engine as well he said they will be working on them soon. Keep up the good work Fergus.

shift the position of the spark plugs and caps. it limits the planes that can take a twin. alex
