Model Airplane Engine - 4 Cylinder, 4 stroke, 2 cc 1/12 Scale Cirrus Engine

Made by; Profi Me in the Ukraine 2001 ā€“ only 25 made.

The detail of this engine is awesome - The movement of this motor is really nice!  Think about it! 4 cylinders & 4 cycle - camshaft, head, valves, valve springs, jugs, rocker arms, cam gears, casings.

Micro Cirrus 4 Cylinder Inline Engines, Designed by Merritt Zimmerman, 1974, 1/12-Scale Models Manufactured by Profi ME, Ukraine, 2001- 2003

Two variations of the Zimmerman model Cirrus engine are these micro engines from Ukraine. They run on methanol with glow ignition and are among the smallest multi-cylinder 4-cycle engines in the world. The engines are less than 4 inches long and have a mere .5cc displacement in each cylinder, making the 4-cylinder only 2cc. Initial test results proved these micro engines would spin their 7- and 8-inch propellers to 13,000 revolutions per minute.

Only 25 of the 1/12-scale 4-cylinder air-cooled engines were produced in 2001 and another 25 of a water-cooled version. In 2003.

Why I'm selling this;

A dear friend of mine (Paul Giles) passed away at only 62 years young on April 20, 2012. Paul was a Navy Vietnam Vet, a representative for JR/Horizon Hobbies, and judged at the FAI flying level for many years.  Paul was an avid hobbyist. He won many awards for things he built. His favorite was building sophisticated scale boats and helicopters. Paul was an excellent builder, a perfectionist, and loved buying the best and latest gadgets. If you were ever at the AMA Heli Nationals, IRCHA, or the Toledo Show you might know him ā€“ he was a great guy! 

In saying that, Iā€™m helping his wife sell his awesome hobby stuff which consists of several helis, boats, cars, trains, and collections of everything unique. I will present it the best I can here on eBay.
