Has anyone seen this engine yet?

Go to eBay and enter 5990412788 into the search box.
It will take you to a listing for a Lincoln .61 R/C engine. No, I am not
connected to this listing in any way.
Does anyone have one of these engines? I like the American name of "Lincoln" and the red head that is reminiscent of the old McCoy engines of yesteryear.
If it was a .50, I would be tempted to buy one, but only IF the seller accepted PayPal or a credit card, so that I have recourse if it doesn't show up, or is defective and the seller refuses to honor conventional fair trade etiquette. Not that I think he wouldn't.
I just don't fly sixties that much any longer.

But it looks like "Redhead" is spelled wrong on the box. http://tinyurl.com/9prol You can read "Rede..." in one picture and the rest is hidden behind the engine.

That is odd, now that you mention it.
Were I going to order a one-off batch (my assumption only) of engines from an Asian manufacturer, I think I would have ordered .46 -.50 size engines. These days, I doubt that .61 size engines are all that popular.
My quota of engines for this year has been attained. My last engine purchase was an 805cc Kawasaki V-twin, wrapped in a VN 800 Classic motorcycle. Otherwise, I would be tempted to buy one of these just to see what it is about.

If the Lincoln, NE location of the seller has anything to do with it, folks in Nebraska will pay triple for anything painted red. Go Huskers!

Hehe, a school hires away one baseball coach and everybody gets all their panties in a bunch. You wouldn't happen to fly with the Golden Knights out of Lincoln, would you?

Back when the Genoa fun-fly was a major event we used to see some of the guys from Lincoln out there, but that event is now history.

Maybe he will put you in as beta tester ??
No history on that engine yet. Might be that it functions as a good 50, no ?? Still cheap then

If I could get to my engine test stand (too much stuff syndrome), I would volunteer for the job. In fact, I would buy one and do a review. Just too much stuff in too small of a house at the moment. Gonna remedy the latter one of these days. Soon I hope.
