That was a couple of years ago but I believe they're still available, even the 2.5cc Mk V, and the prices haven't gone up all that much (apart from the Mk V which is now £300). But the last time I looked there was about a 4-5 month waiting list Wink.

There's a long thread about the new Olivers on the Barton site http://controlline.org.uk/phpBB2/index.php Look under Engine Talk.

Hi Guys, this is my first time ever on a forum so forgive any mistakes please.
I have recently returned to modelling after a 40 odd year break, have a couple of fox35's these are dependable, very difficult to prevent them from starting, also have a silverfoxx 40 that produces a good power but I can only get it to run in a profile model? have OS 10,25,35,and acouple of la46's all very reliable engines. I try to fly stunt but am in no way a competitor just love to build the good looking models and tool around the manouvers with them. currently don't belong to any club here in Aus. just the national body. it is great to look over all your opinions/knowledge etc and hope to be able to log in from time to time.

Graham,

Great to see another Ozzie retread getting back on the handle. Welcome back into the circle.

There are a number of good clubs around where CL is spoken fluently, and you can hang with mates about your own vintage.

Where abouts are you?

Regards

G'day Graham,

Sorry to call you an Aussie mate, just assumed that since you were here, you were one of us. Still Kiwis are just about close enough.

Good to see your club has a bunch of CL types where you can fly the only way where there is a physical connection to the model.

I'm in western Sydney - flying with Doonside club at Whalan Reserve on Saturday mornings. Perfect day today BTW.

Regards

Welcome Graham,

You may be interested to know there is a mainly CL event near Coffs Harbour 23rd and 24th June this year.   It's a fly for fun thing on mown grass with three circles.  There's also a field next door for simple type RC models and a spot of Freeflight.   Was the first year it was held last year and a lot of us flew the three types.  And the weather was sensational.......warm and calm.  Same this year???  Who knows???  You can't control the weather I'm afraid.

Your 1/2 way there being at Lismore......It takes us an easy 4 hour drive from the Gold Coast.

Most of us roll in on Friday, when after 3pm you can have a fly, as the school kids have gone home on 2 weeks holiday at that time of year.

My Wife and are are going down on the Thursday for a week and have booked a cottage called Yokoso for that time.   Many motel it, as we did last year, others stay in the Sawtell cabins on the beach and a few bring their caravans.

It's a great weekend with a dinner at the golf club on the Saturday night and a BBQ breakfast on the Sunday morning that it seems I'm helping with.  Hope I don't burn the snags.
 The Sawtell township is an absolute joy, with great coffee, breakfast, lunch and dinner spots to enjoy also.

The local Coffs guys are arranging most things, and for more details take a look at the Barton CL site.   You would be made very welcome I'm sure.

Has anybody ever seen a engine made by Arden? If I remember correctly it looked like the later Cox engines in that the exhaust went all round the cylinder.
I always thought that Arden was responsible for making the first glo plugs.

Bert
Bert, I did not see an answer to your question so here goes...

Apologies if some of this is not accurate...most of it is from reading and listening.
 
I believe Arden first made a .19 that was spark ignition. It was "sorta like" another engine called the ATOM.

Ray Arden DID invent the glow plug. I saw some that had replaceable elements. I would guess that those were quickly replaced with one piece ones because of the fragile nature of the platinum elements.

When Ray Arden switched to glow, I think he produced both an .09 and .19. From what I understand, the crankcases were made from a Magnesium alloy that crumbled over the years, unless you knew how to take care of them. I have no idea how many remain.

shall we have a 'guess the engine' game? Post the obscure ones?
You've got the right person for this one. I'll start with a common one.

If no one can guess this one, it's useless.

Phil,

Although I have heard of the Madewell many times, I don't think I have ever seen one before. Nice pics.

I have just returned to control line flying after a 10 years break. Got plenty of engines to play with, ME Heron 1cc diesel,  Mills .75, MK-17 diesel, PAW 1.5 TBR (nib), PAW 2.5, 3x OS Pet .09, OS .10 FSR, 3x OS .20FP, OS .25FP, OS .25LA, OS .46LA, OS .29, OS .40FP-S (nib), Taipan 3.5, Aviastar .46. Not to mention a box of about 12 cox motors. Probably have more hiding but those are the main ones. Have a few RC engines too but they don't get used much.

Dan,

Welcome back into the circle. You've plenty of choice to power your models, but don't rule out the RC engines, plenty of them can be converted with a very simple venturi, or even just wiring the throttle open.

I just hit the R/C flea market and picked up an OS LA 46 R/C like new, plus a K&B Greenhead 45 in good condition for $40. The dealer threw in a Royal Spitfire .065 with a broken shaft.
