At least one new club member. Sadly, none of the kids. But ya gotta try!  n1

Getting kids interested is one thing, but the parents have to be on board to support their interest.
I really got stoked about CL when my son started flying.

I've been thinking about showing up at a local EAA meeting and pitch the idea of some demo flights as well as bringing a couple of trainers for the kids to fly at an upcomming Young Eagles rally.

Did a save on the family picture after I asked the wife she remembered you and Big Art from Brodaks.  For some reason she only remembers Big Art.  He is such a gentleman how could she not remember him. 

Tell the family old DOC Holliday says to HAVE A MERRY CHRISTMAS and a very very HAPPY NEW YEAR.

I have a handful of these and they are long-lasting.  They have a bit more power than my Torpedo Greenhead .19.  Several I have are converted from RC with Jim Lee venturi and Brodak needle/spraybar assemblies.  Use at least 25% oil.  They pull my Clowns like a bat with O&R 9-5s.  Never tried mufflers on them.  I think they would pull something like a light Ringmaster sized airplane quite well.  Pretty similar to a Veco .19.


Addendum:  As I read the thread it occurred to me I mentioned the clowns right after the post on clown racing.  I don't race mine- they are trainers and maybe balloon busters so I wasn't commenting on that.  Just for sport/stunt use.

Did a search and found a post that stated Larry Barrickman passed away some time ago.   Could not find anything on Tom Rounds.  Maybe someone from the Orlando area can be of service.

Yep, Da Dirt's last season or two, he used the .25FP with a header and aluminum tuned pipe from MACS products. I have the pipe data filed someplace, and I believe he used an APC 10-3 prop. He flew this powertrain on scaled down Impacts in the 450-500 square inch range, called "Wimpact 450" and "Wimpact 500", oddly enough. You should be able to do a search for those names and find all the data. If that doesn't work, I would expect DD would be willing and able to give you specifics...if you're willing to follow the instructions exactly.

If you're apprehensive of using a tuned pipe...don't be. It's not that difficult to setup, and once that's done, it is no different than any muffler. Another potential setup would be a MACS Muffler, which has been used with great results on .40FP, Tower .40, and .46LA.  Hoff Steve

We (NW Skyraiders) had a Streak Trainer with an Enya 19, side mounted with stock strap-on muffler. Turned out to be a bad deal side mounting this engine with the muffler. The muffler contacts the ground (concrete airport ramp) and puts a torque on the crankcase, breaking it. I think an upright or inverted mounting would have had a better chance of survival. Another interesting weirdness is that some of the Enya .19's have the same mounting bolt pattern...and some don't. Otherwise, they run ok for sport flying. Not your best bet for Clown Racing, IMHO.  Hoff Steve

The answer to the topic question for me is: nothing.   Grin

Just won an Enya 19 V cheap off of eBay.  It looks to be in good shape, but I need to make a needle valve for it, and make or get a muffler.

I got it because -- due to annual flooding of my usual flying field -- I've had my eye on the AquaBat design for ages.  The Aquabat was published in 1954, and calls out a K&B 19 -- I was wondering if this engine compares, or if I need to keep my eyes out for something smaller or older.
