Hi Wolfgang, it is a standard Walbro carb, you may be able to get the part you need from a lawn mower or weedeater dealer. Or you may also try any dealer that has Zenoah parts. Al

I got mine a couple of days ago and it is just like the photo... Side carb. Haven't run it yet but quality seems pretty good.

I got mine in the mail today. Mine is side carb but the spark plug is not mounted at an angle, it's straight up and down. On the back of the case, which seems to be polished aluminum, it says "Turnigy 26cc"

I purchased this engine back in mid-April and today I tried it for the first time. It started easily after 5 or 6 flips of the prop. I did not touch the mixture screws. On a 16-6 MA prop and fresh fuel @ 30:1, it ran up to 8100 RPM. The low speed might need some tweaking as it gets rough below 2100 RPM but the transition to full speed is very smooth. I ran a 1/2 litre of fuel through it and did many starts. 1 or 2 flips and away it goes.
I am very pleased with this engine except for the fit of the muffler, the holes barely line up but I managed to drill out the holes a little bit bigger and they are ok now.
Overall I am very satisfied and will fly the plane with this engine next week.

Hi, I have one of these on a 64" Yak. It looks good but this one has a badly threaded crank (hobby city have agreed to replace it from photos i sent, i call that pretty good service), also the silencer bolt hole don't match up very well. The engine is light, it starts easily and runs great on 4.8v. Transition is good but overall performance is lacking in my opinion, this may get bettter though with time. Prop figures are 6000rpm on a Menz 17X8 and 6600rpm on a Graupner 16X8 'G' sonic. These figure improved by 400rpm when the sensor timing was advanced to its max. 3 stars for performance and quality controle, 5 stars for value, overaul i think 4 stars would be a realistic rating. It looks like it should last well and seems to be reliable given it's had over 4 hrs running.

I ordered a FTL26 and received it after 4 days very quick. The engine went into a cmp Katana 72" with 5.5kg takeoff weight on 16x10 prop it performes quite good first flight was not bad but engine cut out after 5 min running. Adjusted the needels and increased the cooling now 10min running on ground with full throttle is not a problem. Next test will be with 17x6 prop. So far no problems with the engine therefore I'm quite happy with the product.

Just received my new FTL 26, installed it in my 1/4 Scale Cap 232. Started it up this afternoon, idles great, runs up about 6500 right now with only 20 minutes of time on it. Everything fit on the engine, all bolts snug, even the muffler bolted up with no problems. Looks like they have been listening to the customer reviews. I'll definately buy another.
