The HP VT21 4-stroke RC model plane engine

This is a 30 year-old 4-stroke engine which has an Aspin Rotary Valve in the head rather than more conventional poppet valves and camshaft. These engines are very weak but also amazingly quiet. The airframe is a very old design from the 1960s I think and it weighs a ton. Flying this engine/airframe combination requires a *very* light touch on the sticks because it'll stall in an instant if you attempt to slow it up or use just a fraction too much elevator. Still, it makes a nice change from grossly overpowered trainers, 3D machines and pulsejet-powered RC models.

This unique turpoprop powered Ugly Stik was seen at the 2011 ANZAC jet rally in Tokoroa New Zealand. This was only its second flight. Something nicely different to all the other turbine-powered jet models in the sky at that event.

Kalt .45 4 Stroke Engine is Antique. Let's run it.
One of the first 4 Strokes to hit the market in the early '80s was this Kalt .45. It was manufactured by Kalt Sangyo of Tokyo, Japan and was one of my most reliable and greatest flying engines for my planes. It needed no muffler and used no or low nitro content fuel to run. I decided to run it for all of you to see and here. Thanks for watching.
