When it comes to all things RC this is my favourite sound. A burbling 5 or 7 cylinder Radial. This is a 5 cylinder SC radial converted from glow fuel to petrol. Expertly done because it performed perfectly.

The carb is a walbro and it has an electric pump. This conversion came from a Morris Mini motor. Bolted to the front of a Boeing Stearman PT-17 it looks perfect exposed to show the engine operating and giving maximum sound in the air.

In the air the RC Stearman PT-17 flat-bottom airfoils and light wing loading translate into exceptionally scale-like flight characteristics that everyone from intermediate to advanced pilots will instantly fall in love with.
