I just love tiny motors so I'm in... Okay I wouldn't know what to use this on but I like just staring at it anyway. Wow, thank you even if I don't win. You may want to send me your address Mr. Anxis, I may have to send you some m&m's just because I can picture you sitting in your big chair just enjoying yourself watching these things.

My dad was a car mechanic now retired, so in comparison, to cars, yes. Oh and I have seen my shared of engines, mostly dirty parts which I had to help clean, so looking at the new shiny tiny engine, now that is cool. I saw a kid with a two stroke mounted on a bicycle the other day. I thought that kid was a genius. He was going down the street like mad and I followed him for a bit to watch him speed down the street. I like to see that sort of thing. Maybe I should try putting one of these on a skateboard or something...LOL

Oh my Anixs, You sir are a great person. I would love to be considered for this engine and I have a home for it. I am gathering parts to build an AMR Trainer as a dual use plane for training students and potental new club members/spectators and also for the couple of float flys we have. I have been using a kadet senior on E-power but the flight times are too short and I run out of batteries quick.

Thank You for your consideration, and congrats to whoever you pick.

Thanks for listing anixs, could use this one for the large project I'm building this winter.
This would help my entry into large scale!

Congrats to whoever gets this beauty!
