Foster 29 Model Ignition Enginel



Foster 29 Ignition Engine Manufactured in America Circa 1947, ball bearing shaft, rear induction.




Specifications:
Bore          .750 (in.)
Stroke       .672 (in.)
Capacity   0.297 (ci.)

This engine was used to power a big Red Zephyr free flight model which was modified for 3 channel radio assist: rudder; elevator and engine cut-off. The engine flew the plane adequately but could not ROG and had to be hand launched. The engine was later replaced by an O&R 60 which had more than enough power for the job. I have since sold all my ignition parts such as miniature coils and transistorized circuits, so I had to resort to using a surplus motorcycle coil and ignition battery. You can see this old girl running on full ignition and glow ignition by clicking the object below.
