Yes mate P40 Warhawk or Kittyhawk as sometimes called, Powered by OS70 Fs  Rainbow 
Saw full size one display twice this year @ Manston & Eastbourne Airshows and thought i'd like a model of one of those  Bunch 
When its kitted out you'll be testing her out as always feel nervous doing Maidens for some silly reason  Embarassed   Embarassed   Embarassed 
Got the Tuned pipe Jackal for you too  Angel 

You know your planes Ian  Bravo

Yes certainly agree Ian, when joining the club i knew sod all about the quality,reliability and performance of model aircraft engines...still no sod all really  lol!  but you mentioned try and get OS if you can afford them Gary! I now know why.
Having owned SC,ASP,IRVINES etc I always go for OS as my first choice as they really are bloody good engines  Bravo 
I have 3no OS 55AX 2 Strokes and 2no 4 Strokes in different models and they have given great service to date  Bravo 

If you can afford OS in your Airframe then go for it  Rainbow 
Just like LMFC...Their the Best 10/10

I'm not saying that they are the best, but all OS's that I have owned have been great runners......From a little OS 15 CV-A to my old OS 120 flat twin.
My personal favourites have been the OS 91 Surpass in my Mustang and my old OS 70 Surpass which I had in a Precedent Bi-Fly about 15 years ago. It then did a couple of years in Great Planes Ultimate, then went on to power a Great Planes Reactor which I bought off John McDonnell, which I then sold to Steve and he flew it for sometime.

The only thing I can't tell you, is what "O.S" stands for....... Old Spice???

After i flew it in the reactor for a while I put that OS 70 into a yt mustang which I flew for a while then sold to Gary ... Is it the same one coming out to play again  Question


Sorry to be a nerd but had to look it up:  study 

O.S. Engines is a Japanese model engine manufacturer.
The company was founded in 1936 by machinist Shigeo Ogawa ("Ogawa Shigeo" in the Japanese surname-first tradition) for the production of model steam engines. The name of the firm could have either originated from the traditional Japanese family-name-first tradition being the source of
the "OS" name, or from the firm's actual Japanese name, "Ogawa Seisakusho".

Hi Steve

The YT Mustang is sadly no more, I tried a very low pass and came unstuck in the Summer but the engine is still running fine even though the exhaust manifold thread has stripped still a great little engine that went well in the Mustang...miss that little plane  Crying or Very sad  Crying or Very sad  Crying or Very sad I have purchased another OS 70 FS for the P40 but will get the manifold repaired on your old as to good an engine to scrap  Rainbow 

Thanks for your research mate 10/10
