This Engine is amazing and my second "hobby engine" in my new collection. I went to school for automotive repair, earned a degree and worked within the industry for more than a decade before retraining into a different career. This is the nicest piece of machinery I have seen in a long, long time. It is WOW! I CANNOT stress, as much as others have stated, how incredible the attention to detail on every piece is. A work of Art.
With that said, being classically trained how to build real sized engines, allowed me to build this one. The instructions are totally sub-par to the absolutely beautiful & helpful packaging the engine arrives in. Not what I expected from such a precise build. The instructions made putting this beautiful engine together like Ikea furniture, but it is an engine. No torque specs on an engine this precise? A lot of mis-prints on the instructions will have you scratching your head. It is nothing super crazy, but this is relative to my background and skill. Overall, instructions and complaining aside, swipe your card. Thank me (and others) later! Totally worth your time and money!
Dieser dünne Motor ist viel zu gut. Ich bereue es nicht, es gekauft zu haben. Diese Qualität und das vorsichtige Design verdienen einen solchen Preis. Ich habe Toyan seit Jahren verwendet. Sie überraschen mich immer wieder und hören auf unseren Vorschlag und verbessern ihn beim nächsten Mal. Ich würde es jedem empfehlen, der sich für RC-Motor interessiert.
Dieser Motor ist unfassbar gut! Den Kauf wird niemand bereuen, wie das für unter 1000 Euro möglich ist, ist mir ein Rätsel.
The best model engine I ever had!
Fonctionne parfaitement et très de bonne qualité. Livret de construction en anglais mais très facile à comprendre (toutes les pièces sont très bien numérotées et précisées sur le manuel).
This engine was an absolute gem to asssemble. All the parts were well made and superbly finished, the fit and finish was exceptional. I am a machinist and appreciate work like this. It looks it will be a real beast but I have no current plans for use but I will display it and run it.
I am 76 years old and my hands tremble but I had it assembled in 3 days. I use first class tools that fit tight on fasteners and do not mar things up. I have three Toyan engines and they are all quality. I have been a model airplane enthusiast for almost 70 years and I have always enjoyed building things with my hands.
I run it off of methanol and top end lube with a little scent added to help regulate the temperature, when compared to gasoline methanol works better with it having a fuel mixer. It can run for over an hour straight with a full tank of methanol. I plan to make a mini homemade ice cream maker with it. great engine for someone that loves a good deal
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!
Very high quality and just the right amount of difficult to assemble. They are generous with the bolts and nuts just in case you lose some. Beautiful and functional end product.
When I was young I always dreamed of having an engine like this and being able to put it together, each piece is incredibly well made and the best of all is that the engine works, I have greatly enjoyed finishing it and seeing it working, the delivery was fast and everything arrived well, excellent website I will recommend you to my friends Thank you
The kit was a pleasure to assemble! Quality materials and a lot of fun to build. The instructions were a bit challenging for a novice builder like me but it didn’t take long to figure it out and enjoy a nice addition to my small but growing collection. I’ll be ordering another kit soon for sure!
The engine feels sturdy, rotates really fast and generates a decent amount of energy!
I connected it to a series of LEDs and made a very interesting decoration.
The package arrived in two weeks, and they even sent some extra parts for replacement.
10/10 would recommend, it's a great gift!
Runs great out of the box You have to adjust the air intake and fuel mixture to get the correct vapour mixture for ignition to occur That,s the screw in cap on top of the acrylic fuel and water container and the chrome plated valve on the end of the non combustion cylinder Nice sounding exhaust Timing doesn,t seem that important
This is a beautifully engineered bit of workmanship. It is very small, possibly mass produced but what a work of art. It works very well on compressed air and revs like a conventional engine. Quite what you would use it for is anyones business but to sit on a shelf and if its noticed, it is a good talking point.
I really liked the instructions. They were very clear to understand and was a fun and easy build. I cannot wait to get it started.
