One of the most interesting new type of engines. I'm not yet fully convinced though. Wonder how they will keep that thing cool in the long run.

Hate to disappoint you Jimmy but nothing rc-related cooking now. I moved away from Finland and still settling in. In the future something most definately, would like to experiment with the engine in this thread but guess they wont have these in commercial markets anytime soon.

Nitto Mfg gasoline wankel would be interesting too but I have no idea if they even sell those engines. Contacted them many years ago and the CEO told me they won't sell outside Japan. WTF...

Thank you.

I too wish I had got a chance to see it in action in the dunes somewhere in the Saudi desert or something. Well, I do have 4 extra Tonegawa Seiko servos so who knows, maybe.

Maybe use this, a semi automatic 125cc four stroke.
