Possible consideration for the four stroke Position??!!
#1
Ok....

I never reach to far from reality when making suggestions......so take it for what I know about it.

I would like John U. and others to consider the following engine for the possibility of being put in a XE.

The VM R9-1250 is a pretty good match to what I think would be a good substitute for the MZ202.

I contacted the company to see if they had a rating for it, and it has the following:

unofficial rating of 65 Hp
81.5 lbs.
rpm range would top out about 3800

Now there are some issues. The first would be the pushrod/valve lubrication. But it uses a fuel oil mix, so no oil pump. It also could be mounted horizontally. It is rated to run 2 hours between lubrication cycles (rods, valves). There would need to be some kind of fan/blower to keep it cool. I'm not sure how I would accomplish that.

I can't think of anything that I would love to see more. A light helicopter with a radial. It would be my ultimate dream.

Don't blast me for the idea....it is just that.......

That's cute, turn the mosi into a miniature Sikorsky S55. Well sort of....

I thought it was a great idea, but not sure how to connect the drive line.

Got to love the lope of a radial. It is an awesome sound. I actually like it better than the whine of a turbine.....although they are close to being as nice.
