Piston Power - First radial 9 and 18 supercharged piston engines!!
I could not retain myself from posing these as I finally completed the first supercharged radial 18 piston engine in simpleplanes!
The engine on the left is my first radial 9 that I made since Visify's was jus a tad to big and I wanted to have a good basis for 18 cylinders.
The one on the right is my second 9 cylinder radial which features a 'supeerchager'. this is the basis of the next engine and still requires refinement.
The last and biggest engine is the first piston 'supercharged' 18 cylinder 2 stage radial engine of SimplePlanes. It is still in development as the power output is mediocre for its size and some bits haven't been able to be correctly placed.
- VTOL up (not all the way, adjust with speed of airplane)
- Throttle up
If you go backwards, restart and try again. :P
The propellers are a Visify creation and I think you should check him out as he inspired me to make these engines and use a new build style. He also made many different engines and propellers that are on offer.
-!- These engines aren't powerful enough yet but work as a proof of concept. They will be improved...
Also, do you remember that wok in progress I posted some time ago? Well guess what these are for... ;)
If you have any requests, put them in the comments.
Thank you for your curiosity!
