R/C flyers adore engines, and whilst the notion that electric flight will eventually rule the aeromodelling world may predominate, two-strokes are still the preferred choice for many, particularly in the quality mid-range club sector where, of course, the ubiquitous .46 – .53 two-stroke has so many uses. Well, as luck would have it, recent demand has encouraged Force Engines to step up and produce this beautifully-made single-cylinder, front induction, schnuerle ported, ABC, R/C glow engine.
Sporting a crisp and clean, bead blasted / painted crankcase, robust one-piece crankshaft – supported on a front (sealed) and rear (open) bearing – the Force 46 offers reassuring longevity with its aluminium alloy piston and hard chrome-plated brass liner, the latter schnuerle ported for improved efficiency and power. Add a proven twin needle carburettor, substantial high-volume silencer, cast high-grip knurled prop driver and rpm range of 2,000 to 17,000 and you have a perfect, and rather eye-catching R/C sport aero engine for a variety of propeller sizes in the popular 10 x 6 to 12 x 5” bracket.
Easy to start, easy to tune and promising years of reliable service the Force 46 is more than a match for your Sunday hack or sport aerobat and it won’t break the bank.
