Foster 29 Model Ignition Enginel

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

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.
