From appearance alone it is evident that Fox engines are different
from the rest of the pack. Duke Fox was always known to be an
innovator and, to some, even a little eccentric. Fox built his
first model engine in 1943. Since then the sheer number and diversity
of successful model aircraft engines designed and produced by
this one man is truly amazing. His accomplishments included many
industry firsts that advanced the state of the art.
Among these were innovative new casting techniques and significant
improvements in glow plug design. Even the use of nitromethane
in model fuel was pioneered by Fox. While Duke Fox is no longer
among us, the dedicated people at Fox Manufacturing continue
the tradition of producing unique and innovative model engines.The
current series of Fox engines maintain the tradition of "out-of-the-rut"
appearance while providing state of the art performance.
