Hobby Shack/Hobby Lobby Kobol Rhino 1.4 RC engine

Postby dixmyth » Wed Sep 13, 2006 12:55 pm

I just got one of these and found ad for it in a 1978 RCM magazine. It is apparently a gas engine converted to glow with a spark plug base drilled and tapped for a glow plug. Has a pumper carb (not Walbro or Zama) and is advertised to produce 2 HP with a 20x5 prop. Anyone know about this engine? I can take a picture and send/post if desired.

My memory is not 100% on this but i believe that the motor was made from the Cox 1.3 chain saw motor that they made in the 60's. Someone else tried to make one out of the O&R 1.3 but it lacked decent thrust bearings.
