Supertigre X61 FI RE R/C TST + header + tuned pipe, Boxed not run
Supertigre X61 FI RE R/C TST + header + tuned pipe. This is a hard to come by Supertigre X60 FI RE r/c TST glow two stroke engine, plus ST header and ST tuned pipe. FI = front intake, RE = rear exhaust. This engine was mounted to a pattern model that my Dad started to assemble, he test mounted this engine into the unfinished airframe to cut out the cowling to suit the engine (last picture of the fuselage with this engine setup fitted). The engine has never been fired up, just mounted to the metal engine mount in the unfinished model. This is the TST version (SuperTigre’s Schnurle Porting), the Supertigre equivalent of the OS RSR type of engine made for pattern flying, this is a potent engine from the early 1980’s era but most of the pattern fliers got sucked into the OS, Rossi and Webra bandwagon, whilst those who knew how solid, reliable and really potent these Supertigres were, fitted them to their model’s. The engine comes in it’s original box, with instructions, ST header setup and a boxed ST tuned pipe designed for this engine. The prop of choice for this setup was a PROFI 11″ x 11″ according to my Dad’s notes from back in the early 1980’s. I have not cleaned the engine, it has not been stripped or interfered with, it has a bit of dust on it, has been inhibited and has sat on a shelf for almost 3 decades in my Dad’s model room which is a spare large bedroom inside their house, so always kept in a warm dry environment. The engine turns over with silky smooth bearings as you would expect, the compression is as brand new with the correct pinch at the top of the stroke which denotes this engine needs running in before use. The piston is unmarked with no exhaust residue as is the header and pipe. The tuned pipe has two small dents towards the end of the pipe (not creases), you can remove the outlet baffle and tease the two small dents out as you can get to them from inside the tear of the pipe, luckily they are very close to the rear most of the pipe. Please study the picture’s as they for part of the item description and condition as well. A fantastic piece of classic pattern flying history and a perfectly usable engine for any retro classic pattern model or one for the collector of very nice rare engine’s. Sadly Supertigre closed their doors a few year’s ago, just like Rossi which is very sad.
