Also if you have any info on the value.
Thank You,

Converted chainsaw engine or such with a tatone Pitts type muffler fitted is my opinion . Way to heavy by today's standards . The last one I converted was way back in the early 2000s. To much other GOOD stuff available now to mess with them .

I would concur in that it is a converted chainsaw or trimmer engine. The muffler is a Tatone brand and not the engine brand. Way back in the 1990's through 2000's many people were converting utility engines into RC model airplane engines. The engines tended to be heavy due to the flywheel magneto on them. Plus being converted utility engines they don't develop as much power as they could have. The engines are useable though for trainer and slow flying planes though. But today we have so many other much better and more powerful engines to choose from.
