Dwelling on the Norwegian theme, here's the baby brother of the Drabant: The David Andersen "Satellite", 1 cc.
Here shown with add-on exhaust stack, an original accessory.

Model engines are being used for real world applications, not just for hobby interests.

Seems like the North American market is some what “sheltered”. The inter net and people around the world help even out all this information.

For those interested in Enya here’s the URL

What’s JPY 13,900 work out to in $US ?
Jpy 13900=us $141.25 I go to "enya metal products" just came home from flying the little enya and the guys at the club though it was great to smell diesel fuel again

The F/I version looks nice...I like that flange mounted carb...

Enyas are distributed by MRC here in the USA. A diesel importer told me he'd love to bring them in but he was warned not to by MRC

Comment on JohnAV8R's post on his dieselized TD 09. He claimed 9000 on 8 x 4. Aeromodeller review says glow TD 09 on 30% nitro turns an 8 x 4 (of some brand)
at 13,200.

Don't know about the rest, but the spraybar and needle seem to be Super-Tigre...

Hi Jack, it's an English "retro" (modern but in the old style) Dunham Valkyrie of 5.3cc. How does it run? I've heard some give overheating problems until, very well run-in.

I have a very similar engine, a 5cc Mills, it's also a throttled sideport.

Mills never made a 5 cc, but there was a prototype in the equipment bought by Aurora and they did some production - mine is one of them.
It's rather solid, a bit like an old stationary engine, certainbly cures the need for noseweight.

Runs well on a 14x6 (about 6,500 rpm) and the throttling is charming rather than effective.
It's really only got 2 speeds, flat out and idle - no mid-range that I can find.
The idle is great, a halting brrrrp-brrrrp like an old bus, but it never seems to stop.
If I idle too slow it can actually reverse direction, it's done it on the bench several times, but thankfully never in the air (might be interesting for the Super Scorpion).

Warren, You are correct it is the Valkyrie. I had over heating problems due to the shaft bearing being too tight. A friend lossened it up and now it runs fine. I removed the black paint thinking that may have been keeping heat in. No such luck. I actually have two of these and got them cheap as they have a bad reputation of overheating. Both had the same problem. Both run fine now. Not as powerful as my GB 5.4 cc or BB Drone diesels. Easy to start and adjust. Jack

I have an engine by Dunham, it is the Oliver Battleaxe 2cc. Do you have any information or know of anyone with experience of this particular engine?

The black colour actually helps to radiate heat away! That is why the radiator in your car is black

Here is a photo of the Valkyrie before I removed the black paint. Also with the fuel tank attached that I removed during run in. I did not know about the Battleaxe reproduction. How about a photo? Here is a photo of the John Oliver Jaguar 2.5 cc reproduction by Ian Russell. Many flights with the Jaguar on a Playboy. Jack

It is presently away on storage, I won't have access to it for the next four weeks. Then I'll post a photograph.
I bought it from Michael's Models in London around 1986.
It is heavy and sports a throttle/cut-off rotating barrel.
It sort of looks to the Jaguar like a MkI Mills 1.3 looks to the MkII.
