Schneider Schulgleiter SG 38 Glider
Copyright © 2011 Malcolm Auld This video and audio material may not be used in any form without written permission. The Zögling was a simple lightweight glider for basic flight instruction. It was designed to start with rubber ropes, a common way to start a glider in the years shortly after WWI. It was designed by Alexander Lippisch who became famous for his design of the Messerschmitt Me 163 Komet, a rocket powered/gliding flying wing.
Boeing Company merges with Fred Flinstone to create interesting ultralight glider.

AE 0.1CC Diesel Model Engine Micro
This is a video of the tiny 0.1CC AE diesel two stroke engine. My example shows so-so worksmanship, but the piston and liner fit was acceptable. The tank screws were filed to length and the needle was defective. The needle valve and venturi were replaced with an old Super Tigre part for an idle circuit from a carb. After sorting out the needle and compression settings it starts and runs fairly well. It doesn't make much power turning a Cox 3x1.25 prop at 18,000 rpm. The built in tank is very small and suitable for free flight. i intend to build an RC model and a larger tank to replace the stock one. Testing was done with a small external tank. These were produced by Allen Engineering in the UK in the 199's. They are not available today except for Ebay where they turn up once or twice a year at 100-200 USD.
