Unbelievable Sound And Power Of The Moki 400 Radial Engine!


 The Moki 400 just might be the coolest gasoline powerplant I've ever seen!  It's a 400cc five-cylinder radial engine that appears to be made in Hungary.  It makes 23 hp power while weighing just over 20 pounds, and it has a sound that literally will fry your brain - it's awesome beyond your imagination!  So far, I've only seen the engine used on model airplanes. 

 I found the video at the top several months ago, and I wanted to post it here, but it's not really the best 'video' quality.  The 'audio' on the other hand is simply stunning.  So I figured since I haven't found an updated vid that could compare on the sound, I better just share it with y'all.

 The Gee Bee R3 airplane and the pilot are pretty fabulous too, but that engine just blows me away.  After watching the vid about two times, I was already dreaming up a radical little full-scale design in my head that would be freaky cool with two Moki 400's mounted as pushers (kind of a Cri-Cri eater).  

 I have a bit of a funny habit of putting my dreamy airplanes down on paper even tho none of them have ever been built.  Leave me a comment if you wanna see the "MY9 Stinger".  

 And the video below is of the same model as the one above but with better video quality.  But if perfect radial engines sounds are your thing, you'll probably like the top video best : )

I would be intrested to put two engines each side on the wing strut of a cessna 185,to boost a takeoff in a snowy condition and high altitude glaciers, any comment to that?
