Hi, what kind of crank/rod setup are you using? oil system?I made new experimental 2-stroke. Use most of the stock parts + some addons. Power of 2cylinder inline increased from 50 to 64hp. After some design alternation and numerous tests going to make 2-stroke stars use the same approach.

That’s really something to just wind it up on the coffee table like that. Seems to me that Manolis is a clever guy just maybe not focused. If he could partner up with a good salesman they’d probably be swimming in grant money, if nothing else.
To be fair, there was some miscommunication there. The discussion was over by the time I looked at the thread but I could see several points that weren't expressed as well as they might have been. For example, on that flying backpack thing the issue people were trying to explain was that it would need rudders if one were to pitch it horizontally for high speeds. He repeated that the pendulum effect would keep it stable in hover. Nobody directly said "Hey, the pendulum stability only works for hover because the downward pull of gravity isn't going to rotate with the aircraft when you pitch forward for cruise."Oh God I hope you're not talking about me... he would drive me batty in less than five minutes. He already drove me batty when he was unleashing his torrent of bizarre graphics on that HBA thread. My therapy sessions are ongoing...
=lower pistons friction !It stock engine 72mm bore 61mm stroke with some parts instead of standard pistons:
- steel pushers connected to conrod
- aluminum spacer
- brass liners
Oil system is simple we have separate nozzles for fuel and oil to simplify end user life.
It is prototype. Know how make much better, but it is initiative project made for "pocket money"
Our design add 2kg to original RMZ550. Possible make better. Hopefully will make intense tests next week.=lower pistons friction !
(linear bearings ?)
=weight (comparation with RMZ500/R503/R582)
(Balandin motor have simillar conrod,but moore complicated crankshaft...)
Our design add 2kg to original RMZ550. Possible make better. Hopefully will make intense tests next week.
=RMZ550 minus exhaust=weight ?Our design add 2kg to original RMZ550. Possible make better. Hopefully will make intense tests next week.
