For me, the initial appeal of MVVS petrol engines is that they’ve been designed exclusively for use with model aircraft and model boats. They’re not a revamped leaf blower / chainsaw / general hand tool engine or a mishmash of parts sourced off the shelf, assembled and then presented as an aero engine. For some reason the odd modeller will point to the carburettor used on an engine to indicate that it’s a ‘convert’ engine, as hand tool engines all use this type of carby. Not so, actually - the carburettor is almost always out-sourced from quite a few specialist manufacturers.
