ASP S61A Two Stroke Glow Engine w/Remote HS Needle Valve
Tired of all those electric planes infesting your local club? This high-rpm huge power glow engine can swing a 11x6 prop with ease. No need to worry about expensive batteries here. Just re-fuel and youre off.
Scream through the sky all day with our 61 size 2-stroke glow engine.
ABC construction, Aluminum piston with Brass liner thats Chrome plated Dual ball bearing-supported crankshaft Dual needle valve carburetor with remote High Speed Needle Valve Dual bushing-supported connecting rod
I am currently working on a plan that calls for four engines.
Is it OK if the engines are not identical?
I have a pair of .52, and another pair of .61 engines. They are identical pairs.
I was thinking of using the .61 engines inboard, and the .52s outside.
All engines are mounted on the wing, just like a C-130 would have them.
Can this be done with no adverse effects please?
This motor is supplied without a GLO-PLUG.
The instructions only say to use a medium to hot plug BUT DONOT INDICATE if is a SHOT or LONG REACH plug.
Can any one advise of what to install.
Thanks in anticipation.
Your question is somewhat vague... what sort of trouble are you experiencing? The only issue I have had with one is air leaking through the needle valve caused by a poor fitting O ring. The cheap and dirty fix for this problem is to simply place a piece of fuel tubing over the needle valve where it meets the casting.
I assumed you already owned one and were having trouble tuning the engine... That being said, I have had no problems with using these engines with the remote needles other than the leaning out problems caused by the problem outlined above. In fairness though, that particular engine had many, many hours of use. I highly recommend them.
That is a common problem because of the "one finger" mechanism that engages the needle valve. It applies sideways pressure to the needle and eventually deforms the O ring, causing leaks. This is a common problem with most engines that use the same mechanism, not just ASP. You can actually remove the "finger". The tension created by the fuel tubing fix will keep it firmly in place.
The o ring was messed up. Chewed up I mean. Looks like it was twisted when it was put in. HK is sending me a new one. I had another needle valve from another engine so am using that in the meantime. Testing tomorrow. Thanks. Something to remember about the finger.
Motor muito bom,recomendo a todos essa marca, j meu segundo motor ASP, o primeiro foi um 4 tempos, Muito forte, perfeito! Obrigado HobbyKing!!!
