    In my post #2 in this thread, is Kevin's engine a 2A042 ? I don't know much about them but I thought is was. His engine does a good job on the Mini-Max. The day of the video he just got back to his home field from flying in an airshow with another Mini-Max doing a formation flying demo in another state.
    I think his prop is a 54"x18" that he made.

    what does Kevin weigh, I wonder...? I think a big ol 200 pounder like me would have a big effect compared to a 150lb man.

    Just answered - thank you for your interest!

    Regarding the -042 weight. I'd have to put lots of stuff on (exhause, carb, etc.) to get anything like an accurate weight. Am working that up, though.

    I don’t know about the 042, but in post #6, Aerowerx says the 084 weighs in at 120 lbs ready to fly.

    Out of curiousity, I checked out the 2A042 Yahoo group and found a couple of posts indicating someplace between 70 and 80 lbs stripped, depending on how far you take it. Not sure how much, if any of that was flywheel. Oil pan is supposed to be heavy.
