RCV .58 engine

       Remove this ad - become a site supporter!
Does anyone have any experience with the RCV .58 engine? Where does it produce max power? Because it has a rotary valve, over reving is not a problem. A person should be able to prop it just below the peak power RPM. Has anyone done a test on this engine or is anyone running it ? It probably has the power of .45 or .50 2 stroke, can I prop it like an old style .45 2 stroke?

There is a support forum on RCU for RCV engines, you might want to check there also.

I have one, it runs at just over 11,000 rpm with a 12 * 6 prop, AFTER running in.

I am waching this thread with interest....I was asking about the RCV engines aswell and got some good and some not so good tales about the RCV engine.
I thought it would be a great engine to put in a scale plane that would use a turboprop because if it's long slender design
