COX QRC .049 Engine

Cox 049 Dragonfly Engine
Cox 049 Dragonfly Engine

Made by COX HOBBIES INC. / COX Engines

From Wikipedia
  • 1976 QRC (Cat#450-1 - manufactured 1976–1996)

The QRC was a modified Babe Bee engine that had a muffler and larger (8cc) fuel tank. In the 1970s noise became an issue and the Cox engineers discovered that when adding a muffler the engine would lose significant power. This problem was alleviated by installing a cylinder with no sub piston induction. The engine was designed for power launching Radio Controlled Gliders and had a red tank with a blue spinner.

Mine has a silver spinner.

  • 1982 Dragon Fly (Cat#4505 - Manufactured 1982–1996)
