EME 70CC Twin AS (with AUTO START)

***Now with EME Electronic Ignition DC 7.4-8.4V (recommend a 2s Battery) and Walbro Carb***

You will love having the electric start feature on your Warbird or Sport Plane. No more flipping a prop. Simply assign it to a switch and start your engine with the push of a butting/flip of a switch. Drive gear incorporates a one way bearing so power is not transferred back to the motor/engine. 

VQ WARBIRDS is proud to offer a powerful and reliable engine alternative for the 60cc and larger class of Warbirds & “TARGET” aircraft (extras, edge, etc).  This engine has been flown extensively and this engine is not only reliable it is NOT finicky to tune. With the EME 70 twin boxer engine you can spend more time flying sorties hunting down the enemy and less time tuning. The EME 70cc incorporates 100% reliable parts, uses EME Electronic Ignition DC 7.4-8.4V (recommend a 2s Battery), and bearings made in Japan. Accessory parts such as mufflers for the popular DLE / DL lines will fit with no modifications. EME engines are produced with modern CNC and casting production methods. This 70cc gas powerhouse is compact but powerful.  The EME 70 is worth a try to bring new life to an old favorite Warbird or for your next project!  Don’t be a TARGET,,, FLY A WARBIRD with a POWERFUL EME !!!

Like the rest of the EME line, the factory pays close attention to timing on this motor, resulting in noticeably better running and smooth operation. EME has recognized the short comings of other engine lines and really stepped up quality. For example, a genuine Walbro carb is utilized not a copy. When you look at other popular engines in this class they use a walbro-copy (not the same).  Make sure to check out some of the subtle but effective nuances incorporated into this engine.  EME includes a longer throttle arm on the carb resulting in smother operation and saves on servo wear and tear.  The mount design allows for shorter stand off’s resulting in less vibration.  Even the packing material was considered.  No more blowing foam out of the cylinder and wondering of you got it all out. Are you aware of the reed block mod on the popular engines, to get smooth air in to the engine? EME is and they designed the reed block in a manner to allow smooth clean air flow for maximum performance.  EME is truly the NEW BREED of PERFORMANCE WARBIRD ENGINES!
