Who are we?
We are a couple of long-time
model aircraft enthusiasts with a combined experience of over
70 years, including U-control, free-flight and RC. Our professional
backgrounds include both mechanical and electronics engineering.
We reside on the Southwest coast of Canada, in the province of
British Columbia, near the city of Vancouver.
Being dedicated Fox fans, we
primarily fly Fox engines and over the years have flown almost
every size and type of glow engine produced by Fox Mfg. We literally

seem troublesome. This is not to say, however, that we have never
experienced any difficulties. Admittedly, at times, some engines
have required a little "help" to realize their full
potential. Over many years of running these engines, we have
developed a number of techniques, modifications and custom parts
to improve the performance and user friendliness of those that
This web site is maintained primarily

Although we did a lot of control line flying in our earlier years,
we have been into RC exclusively for almost four decades now,
and thus have long been out of touch with the control line community.
If you have any questions or concerns regarding engines for control
line models, we would suggest you check out some of the online
forums such as
