very well made great engine. Takes a bit of work to get it going, but the patience paid off. I made a starter drive to fit on my rechargeable drill, it helps enormously with the starting.
This engine was well-packed and had no damage to the product whatsoever. The milled parts of the machine are smooth and appear to have no imperfections. With a little fuel and the provided pull-string, it started up right away on the first try. Played with this micro engine several times and it performed perfectly each time. Very Satisfied.
Everything worked the first time! This is so much fun to just watch--it's also functional: it creates electricity.
What an amazing little engine! It is a beautiful bit of machine engineering and runs like a top! At first the little guy seemed a little tight but loosened up after the first run. I applied a small amount of graphite lubricant to all the points of movement and it purrs like a kitten. Love It!
What a fabulous thing! I bought this for my 13 year old getting into engineering. He loved it! Spent a few hours on the first day getting to grips . He spent the second day completing it and was not only incredibly satisfied with the working result but now understands how engines work. Quite expensive, but it is very well made indeed and highly recommended.
Quality product and received it well before we were supposed to. Very nicely designed machine. Works great!
Great model. The level of detail is impressive. will buy more.
i bought it for my son's 16-years-old birthday. It's a great time to spend with him to assemble this car engine and get it running. fabulous. Hope there will be a water-cooled version in the future.
My 11 year old was so excited to open this set! He is about halfway through it and is enjoying every minute of it! I highly recommend this set for anyone with a child who loves to build. Instructions are easy to follow. We love hands on learning and this is a great project for my son!
Desk toy extraordinaire!! I bought this, painted up the base, and proudly display it on my desk at work. Everyone asks what it is and I light the little wick and set it to whizzing about. Works perfectly every time. Super cool gadget for the money.
Value for money, gets kids engaged for over a week. Little delicate though.
Beautiful made engine; runs well and is very nice to look at. Got it running out of the packaging very easily. Started work on a custom base & exhaust immediately :-) Very happy with my purchase!
It is amazing how simply this thing works and the RPMs it can get up to. I am pleased that they sent spare parts also (LED, rubber band and two glass tubes). I wasn't expecting the spare parts. Very simple to operate but due to open flame, I wouldn't trust it with younger children. I would suggest getting a small syringe to fill alcohol bottle. I put the legs of the LED through the generator pins without soldering and it works great.
The kit was shipped fast and well secured, it's no doubt that it is amazing and well manufactured
Just received the TOYAN L200 engine this has a great aperient’s unique sounds and overall has great power! I’m still in the testing phase but! But whenever Toyan releases the water cooled version I plan to fit it into a boat soon!!! Great product if you don’t have it GET IT ASAP!!!!! plan on purchasing many more engines from Stirlingkit.com # Mona
Good for the price. Got it for my car and need to put it on still. Started in 1 pull after letting the carb bowl fill up. 5 like it says
It arrived very quickly and broke very quickly. The unit looks pretty solid. I am very happy about the service.
Seems pretty durable. I ramped it off of our concrete stairs and driveway and it rebounded just fine. The power is decent but don't expect it to go through much. I had mowed our grass the day before shooting this video and it would not make it out of the yard before doing so. Controls and steers well. Only gripe is that it’s not proportional with the throttle or steering but at this price point, maybe I shouldn't expect it to be. It is quick enough for my son to enjoy and the spare battery is nice to have. All in all, I am happy with this purchase.
Looks like a solid engine . easy installed. Other then that it started from the first pull . great engine for the price paid
I love it
perfect. match the description. fast delivery. i receive everything i need. they also send the starter kit. it works well on my car.
