I understand you misconception if your only experience with control line was .049.
In the stunt world larger planes, faster speeds, longer lines, the engine needs to have the grunt to pull the plane through the various maneuvers involved in the modern pattern.
For the most part when flying stunt you would not spend a lot of time flying around in circles, 2 level laps between maneuvers.
This critique sheet may help explain things.

Re: Enyas anyone?

Enya, eh! Quite funny. Just picked up a new Unrun Enya 15 control line engine model 3303 yesterday for a birthday present to myself.😀 I want to be careful and break it in carefully and properly.

Re: Enyas anyone?

Many many decades ago had a mishap due to radio failure and had to build a new wing and front fuse repair. Got it done quick before I could get a new engine and a fella loaned me an old Enya 35 fur a few weeks. Don't know if it was the fuel or what but had to pull the lapped piston and steel liner every couple of days and do a fine steel wool clean on the liner as it seemed to get cruded up with something from the fuel making the piston/ liner tight so she wouldn't run right. Used Sig fuel at the time. Kinda turned me away from Enya yet others had good luck.
The above pictures of the little 15 brought back memories.
Just my experience.

Re: Enyas anyone?

I wonder if it was running lean and hot and baking the oil onto the inside of the engine?

Yes I have had Enya engines in the past and they have been some of the best I have ever ran!

What you will find is, an engine that varnishes up easily is a closely fitted engine with super fine wearing surfaces. I have a 1966 Enya .09 that does this and it still runs like a champ. It has more than 50 hours on it.
