Thunder Tiger has a new .50-size performance engine

May 02, 2011 1 Comment by


The new Redline Series .56 Helicopter Engine from Thunder Tiger gives competitive heli pilots the power and performance they are looking for:

First; this Thunder Tiger’s largest .50-class displacement – and one of the most advanced heli engine. It features cylinder liner features an XC2 composite coating to extend engine life – and an etched criss-cross pattern to minimize friction. The carburetor includes a heat insulator mount for more consistent power and dual needles that can be adjusted with a screwdriver or hex wrench. Add to that other features that include a reinforced beam mount, dual bearings and an oversized, CNC-machined anodized heat sink head.  We think you will find this engine to be a great value/


Displacement:  0.553 cu in (9.05 cc)

Bore: 0.906 in (23 mm)

Stroke: 0.858 in (21.8 mm)

RPM Range: 2000-21,000

Output: 2.23 hp @ 17,500 rpm

Weight: 13.8 oz (390 g)

Includes: Redline R3 glow plug

Price: $229.99

The Thunder Tiger Redline 56 Heli Engine will be available late May.
