Would anyone happen to know the weight of a MISTRAL CO2 motor, complete with prop?
I think that there was an article about this motor in the June, '94 issue of Aeromodeller.
Thanks,
Dave Andreski

Hello Dave, I found this by E-bay:

"Tiny Mistral CO2 engine made in Great Britain by Overlander. I am advertising this as used because I don't know the history on it and I  know absolutely nothing about this type of engine. I doesn't have a mark on it so it may be new. The package was open when I got it. It is very small, (that's a quarter in the first photo). The instruction sheet says that it weighs only 17 grams. I have no idea if it works or not and no way to test it so keep that in mind when bidding. I do know that it is definitely cool to have in a collection of model engines"

Heinz,
Thank you for this info.
I have some plans indicating the Mistral. They will be converted to electric. The weight info will be very helpful.
Also helpful to know that the Mistral was made by Overlander.

A bit of useless information Cheesy - The Mistral started off as the Humbrol Shark (possibly even earlier by another manufacturer), and the tooling/parts stock was sold on. In its final incarnation it became the Aerographics Tornado 69, which married the Shark/Mistral crankcase & crank with a piston and cylinder made by Stefan Gasparin. This final motor is a lovely bit of kit, and I have one which I use in duration competition models.

Cheers

Heinz,
Thanks for the photos. I actually have seen the Sharks before, though never the Mistrals.

I think it started as the Humbrol PMS1. When Powermax took over production it became the Shark and then the Mistral when Overlander made them.

Such a shame that no one is making CO2 stuff anymore, I still love them!
