Come all without, come all within,
You'll not see nothing like the mighty quinn.

Never mind that, but it came to mind when I saw the new MVVS electric in/out-runners.
Anybody know anything much about them?
Found some German articles, but am chasing anybody with hands-on experience.
Go to http://www.mvvs.cz/elektromotory.html to see the motors.

Quite right, Steve, - never again - till next time!
But, - something about a red rag to a bull . . .

Should really have kept to Ron's excellent references on a very interesting motor!
Only possible mistake was to order the one with the higher Kv. In the first round it is going in a Grob motor glider, so hopefully it won't tear the front off it (the model was made for a Speed 600).
Can't wait!

I have just ordered a 4.6/860 Sport via Dar Zeelon, to power a Blackhorse .32 sized T-28.

The "Sport" reference is given to those motors that have an internal cooling fan.

Dar says that the model numbers MVVS use give you the 2 stroke comparison and then the motors Kv rating.

The 4.6/860 is the equivalent of a
4.6cc 2 stroke, with 860 Kv.

Due to the location of the 3 x 3.5 MM electrical connectors on the rear of the motor, these motors need a factory option cradle for radial mounting to the front of a models firewall.

David,


There is also the option of drilling your plane's firewall and installing the motor on a 'nose-ring type' mounting bracket.

But I believe the MVVS system is the better way to front-mount it.

Cheers.

Hi Dar,
I am in agreement. The best and simplest way will be using the brilliant MVVS cradle, mounted to a firewall extension.
