Other than revolution engines that go in Harleys and evolution engines out of illinois, there doesn't seem to be any reference to that engine anywhere for a/c.

New 52 cc Revolution Engine

I haven't had any experience with this engine but I know wich one your talking about... It would be nice if they come out with some smaller displacment ones, say 32 and 21 cc ones or even glow ... With rear intake and exhaust its nice and narrow.... If I was in the market for a large engine I would consider it for sure.... Depending on price to, they don't mention that in the add...??

Revolution 50cc

The engine is made by Cinmaster in Mississauga. This is the same company that makes Revolution Spinners .He's also a distributor for Kangke ARFS.

The owner of the company was kind enough to show it to me when I was in there last summer to pick up a kit and spinner from him.

It's looks pretty, it's a cast case as opposed to machined ala ZDZ. Not saying it's a zdz just that the case is cast like zdz.

Rear carb and rear exhaust. very long front end should make it a great choice for warbirds.

He had it mounted in a Kangke Texas Hurricane for testing. I don't know what the performance was like. I know he had a 20x10 prop on it which I consider small for a 50cc engine but, he may have been just breaking it in with that.

He flys out of the Halton Hills club so, maybe if anyone on here is a member there, they may have first hand experiance with it.

These were on display at the Guelph Symposium, and it looked sweet! If it has anywhere near the power of the DA (which it is supposed to) There will be at least two of them in Norhtern Ontario this summer ...right DB
