{detailed description}A new era has dawned in the world of model aeronautics, that of the miniature compression-ignition engine, now universally known as the 'Diesel.' This book deals comprehensively with these revolutionary model engines, providing a survey that covers every known make of engine upon which information is available. Some fifty engines are fully described, their drawbacks and advantages noted, while sections of the book are devoted to questions of running, maintenance, construction and design. Throughout, the book is lavishly illustrated with over a hundred photographs and drawings. Compiled in part from information supplied by the makers, but mainly from data won in four years of carefully tabulated experiments at the workshops of the AEROMODELLER Research Department, this is a book that no enthusiast can afford to be without.
The petrol engine is not obsolete-but it is obsolescent for free flying model aircraft. The Diesel has taken its place, and this is the handbook of the Diesel.
