Magician .15

I put out an add for one and hit paydirt. Fair price was agreed on and wheels set into motion. Many years ago a friend had one with a Sportsman .15 and it flew very well. That reed Cox never missed a beat. About ten years later my neighbor seen me cleaning an RC car and brought out a Magician .15 with a Fox steel fin .15. We got it going and it flew well.
I have to finish a Magician .35 that is next in line. As soon as I get the little Magician .15 kit , I will copy it. Nice lite wood and have a great running Cox Sportsman .15. I have the Olympic also. Poor Ringmaster is again put off, but I am doing something good for that project also. Just got a real nice OS Max .35S.
I have been busy but almost done with two B-Team racers. Just some final fitting and adjusting. They both look great.

Magician .15

Mike,
A TD .15 would make this sing. they had problem with first TD .15's. Blow out the rod because of socket. the Sportsman is no power house but proven runner and steady. Good as Stunt engine. With any luck should get it this week. Need to copy it for future. Have a super nice OS Max 111 .15 and a .19 to. Might even try a Diesel 2.5cc. Nice feature is they are small but not to small.

Any of those motors would be great for the Magican. I personaly like the idea of a nice diesel. My TeeDee .15 never came apart on me ,I won my first sport race at 75 mph on a clipped wing Ringmaster Jr. with it . Wish I still had it.With that long nose you might be able to use an .09 diesel like a PAW or an old Super Tigre G31.

.15td

The Mk11 came out right away to replace first TD .15's. Like anything else some had problems others did not. Then they made the TD special and it was a runner. Seller recieved my money order and goods are on the way. Need to get some 3/8" stock for fuselarge.
All my .15's/.19's are up for the task, but want to use the Sportsman. even have several new plugs. I even bought some early Cox heads for Space Bug and Thermal Hopper. They are smaller/ even still in little bubble pack.

.15TeeDee MK. II

I have a MK.II now that was given to me in a trade . I have not run it and it looks like it has been used . The plug is an after market head that takes a regular glow plug .
Your Sportsman will be super nice for the Magican . I have a few parts for the Sportsman for trading if you are interested .

Magician .15

Kit arrived in good shape. Wood is pretty nice and all looks nice and neat. Box is really the nicest one I have seen. I checked the Sportsman and it is nice shape. I have extra new plugs and couple of new reeds. I need to finish the .35 size ship first but will start to copy the kit.
