The tongue muffler pictured is sure a contrast to the usual mufflers that are provided with modern engines, especially the converted R/C ones.

The package actually also includes the standard cast muffler which is very quiet and efficient as well as three different venturis (0.218. 0.235 and 0.272"). It gives you a very flexible power profile for just about any classic and old time model. We've flown it with all of the configurations and found it to be easy to handle and VERY powerfull and responsive to the needle. Clean four cycle and nice break. Full hemi with small squish combustion chamber. The small case makes it easy to put into classic stunter designs.

Clint:  I see another engine in your future - and FWIW Chipmunk made it to Gallup fine, it has taken up residence in my spare bedroom.  The other (garaged) stunters are jealous  Turn 

Dave: Props used?  RPM?  Planes?  Did you use the remote needle valve or convert to std. configuration?  Thanks

Horizon must have noticed an uptick in sales for CL engines, presumably at Tower, good sign.

We used it with the remote valve. It's nice and progressive. It weighs a little less than an once so if weight is a consideration... Proped from 9x6 to 12x5. With the 0.272 vent it's more of a 40 to 46 replacement. with the .218 it spins an 11x4 Powerpoint at 9400 - clean no break four- the larger vents add about 500 rpm to that in equal steps. The liner was redesigned from the rc version to make it more stunt friendly with changes to both transfer and ep area area. It tolerates just about any fuel. Really a friendly and trust me, powerfull piece. We have been flying a Vector arf (0.235 vent 11X4 and 11X6)) with it as well as a cardinal arf (0.218 vent 11x5 or 6).

At 10.3 oz without a muffler, seems a bit heavy for classic applications to me. Considering the Fox 35 most used. Then when you consider an LA .46 weighs like 8.4 oz with no muffler. Dont know anything about the motor other than what the specs read to be honest. The cooling fin design has always seemed odd to me, but then I am used to the "normal" config and I am one of the weird guys that like the blue LA finish, so take it for what its worth

  1st time I've seen a tongue on a Manufactured motor from a major company. Now if they would only get rid of the remote needle valve setup.  Could be a possibility if it compares with the Aerotiger 36. I see the Liner is specific for control line. Would like to see more non biased opinions and I may be in the market. Good to see more interest in control line is being noticed by the companies.  Competition is good for the consumer

Hi Mark. Good point on the weight. Horizon seems to have copied the specs verbage in part from the RC engine. In the write up it specs the weight (with the tongue) at 9.4 oz. the 10.3 is with the very large rc carb.

Hi Dave,

Thanks for the heads up on a new CL engine. I have always been a big fan of Horizon products. I have several of their planes and radios, they make a quality, well engineered product and back it with excellent customer service. My guess is that this CL engine will be a good one. :-)

There seems to be some confusion on it's weight. They mention 9.3oz "with" the tongue muffler twice in their write up. Then they show 10.3 engine only in their data section and 2.x oz for the "real" muffler. Do you know what the actual weight is?

Guys,

The specs were indeed copied from the RC page.  I have updated the page today.  The bare engine weight is 9.3 oz.  Remember that this includes two ball bearings, not sleeve bearings when you are comparing.  the tongue muffler weighs in at 14gms (.5 oz) and the Std expansion muffler at 2.1 oz.  Both are included and the choice is yours to use.

Thanks for the encouragement.  You'll see more in the future from the guys at Horizon...

Nice job and appreciate the support that Horizon Hobby is giving the control line world.  Can't find a nicer bunch of guys at HH.  How about doing the same thing with the 52?

This is an interesting development. Its good to see the guys at horizon taking us seriously. Long may it continue! I will certainly show my appreciation in the form of a Saito 62 CL in the near future.

From my point of view, the Evo36 is unfortunately in a category already brimming with excellent CL options at a good price. What I would LOVE to see is one of those low cost brands cobble together a rear exhaust 60 or bigger with stunt worthy timing and weight uder 13 oz. Far easier said than done, I know. RE castings aren't exactly commonplace. But I'd be all over it. Maybe a side exhaust 65 in a 52 case is more do-able... one can dream Wink

Can't resist jumping in here.  As Dave mentioned one of the test birds is a Vector ARF - here's a couple pix of the installation.

The remote needle works EXTREMELY well with real broad resolution.  Having the needle exit on the opposite side from the muffler and well behind the prop will spoil you for "normal" engines.  The height is such that it works very well with bottle tanks too...

A tongue muffler and three different venturi's as standard issue is a nice touch. Some companies seem to charge more for taking off the carb and replacing it with a venturi. I wonder if the venturi's or muffler will fit other brands of engines. What's the cost of a venturi these days? Ten dollars or more? With the tongue muffler and extra venturi's it's kinda like getting $30 or so worth of extra goodies.

Where are these engines' made?

Anybody know the ulitmate source?

The ad says "available May 08".   

As mentioned above, $80 for on engine with three venturis, an NVA, and good muffler is give-away.

 This is some great news! With the optional mufflers and venturis included, it seems like a very fair price at $79.99. I will second Crist's suggestion on doing the larger engines as well. Kudos to Horizon! y1

I cannot add anything here EXCEPT: The Adamisin's are world known for their engine work, and they do know what a stunt engine is supposed to do.  If they say it is good for Stunt, I believe them. y1

Looking at the Vector it looks like the 36 has a lower profile then the Brodak 40. The 36 is down inside the cowl The Brodak 40 is above the Vectors cowl.

Hi Willis. Yes it is smaller than most of the 35 to 40 engines. It's more like a 25 or 30 in volume. I'm working on a small chart of comparitive demensions.

I believe it's real close to the Thunder Tigre. The LA is about .68 to .59 on the Evo on the lug and 1.59 LA to 1.49 Evo across. It's only 1.77 total width which matches up to a LA25 or Magnum 25. It runs like a LOT more than that. We've been flying a Cardinal with the Evo 36 with the smallest vent turning an 11x6 Power Point at 5.3 to 5.4 (set for 4-2-4 break, clear 4 in level flight) lap times on 63's. If that gives some perspective.

YES we will be at FCM, hopefully in full force.  Expect to have EVO's in a couple birds in a couple classes.

BTW if anyone is keeping score, since last season Horizon has brought out 4 new CL engines plus bought major ad space in Stunt News...  I like that!

I couldn't resist.  I tried to place an order online but Horizon's address verification service did not like my address so I phoned them and got on the list to get one.  I made it a point to let the lady I was talking with know that we appreciate Horizon taking an interest in us controliners.  I ask her if there would be a Saito 40 cl version coming out. She did not know.

As soon as I get my hands on one I will make a super light tube muffler for this engine! The 'backorder' says May. Scott@ Hyflo Muffler www.hyflomuffler.com

  I have to believe that some one in the Stunt community has been corresponding with Horizon to come out with this motor. How else would Horizon know about Stunt timing of the liners and different venturi sizes as well as Tongue mufflers.  I have my suspicions, anyone want to fess up?

I think the real story is that Pete Bergstrom at Horizon has taken charge of getting the 3 CL Saitos and now the CL Evolution 36 into production and into the product line.  This is no small feat!  Pete brought out the CL engines with multiple venturi inserts and the light weight tongue muffler - parts of no particular use to the RC crowd.

For any who don't know Pete, he is a CLPA flyer.  The tongue muffler got tooled up specifically because Pete KNEW what we would be looking for and set out to get it.

Bob R. must be psychic!    y1

Pete discussed the Evo36 with Dave Adamisin (one of my MUCH older brothers) starting last summer.  The engine sounded REAL good on the bench, and we picked up a Vector ARF (see pix several posts ago) for flight tests.  Dave actually "witnessed" the test flights in his living room over his phone while recovering from knee replacement surgery!  I called him on my cell so he could "listen" to it - of course he got out later...

The effort that Pete Bergstrom made to bring the new CL engines out from a major RC supplier with no prior CL product - this is really something to that must be appreciated.   Hoff

Ok, leap of faith - I just ordered one.  Figured I could put it on one of the two F-Twisters I got in the pipeline.

Probably can slip $80 under her nose on the cc if you know what I mean!   y1

I'll report when I get it and try it out.

Dave,
I bought an RC version from my LHS for 40 bucks, never been run. Any idea when the venturi's will be listed on the parts list? I think a FP tounge will fit this bolt-on size..I was going to make a delrin venturi for it, but I like the looks of the blue anodyzed one shown here.BTW...did you count how many head shims come on the CL version?The RC version seems to have really high compression, so I had my LHS order me some extras..

And to think there were some naysayers saying it couldn't/shouldn't be done with this engine when I considered modifying it! Ha!!

Another engine. The last thing I need is another engine. The more I hear about this one, the more I want one. This one won't drop into any model I have. The Tutor II would have been a good choice, but that one is gone. What ARF would be a good match for this one?

Don't do ARF's but seen 'em all, flown some of 'em so here goes:
Clearly: Nobler, Smoothie, P-40, Vector 40, Sig Primary Force, Oriental
*Argueably: Cardinal, Pathfinder

*Fine IMHO, opinions may differ  Hoff

Did I miss any?
