Duke Engine

Little engine out of a NZ company I heard about through a kidplane builders forum I visit. The power to weight ratio (probably 2nd most important thing in an airplane) is incredible, combined with the minuscule size of the thing, if it can manage to prove reliable this thing could be a force to reckon with.

only 3 plugs & no cams or valves=less moving parts. Pretty cool tech. I would love to ride a bike making big power out of a small & light engine. I also see how this would be great for small/experimental/ultralight aircraft. I hope it's reliable.
