Dummy Engines

The german model magazine FMT published the files for a complete 1:1 scale Graupner Wankel engine some time ago.
In my dummy engine, I used the muffler files and the outer cooling ring files from this source.
All the inner parts like the inner cooling ring and the front plate I had to draw myself using OpenSCAD to provide room for the electric motor.
The FMT files you can find here:

https://www.vth.de/fmt/cad-bibliothek

Both the OpenSCAD files and the stl.-files for the inner parts are here:
Wankel.zip
(101 KiB) Downloaded 9 times
When using Openscad you can adjust the inner cooling ring and the front plate to suit your motor.

Have fun, cheers
Frank

To make it easier for non-german speaking friends:

You need to download the data from the german magazin FMT as published in the thread. They are called
3-D-Druck-Wankelmotor, Teil 1, ....,Teil 2, and ....,Teil 3.
This three big downloads enable you to print a complete 1:1 scale Wankel engine. For the dummy engine only four parts out of the big number of parts are used.
The parts you need are:
3.20.1 Kühlring
3.13.1 Schalldämpfer Teil A
3.13.2 Schalldämpfer Teil B
3.14.1 Schalldämpfer Kappe

In addition you need the two parts "Front" and "Zylinder" from my Wankel .zip.
The glow plug you see is a real one.

I used a C4250 typ brushless motor, about 600kv, turning a 12x6 prop on 4s Lipo. It provides more power than a 40 or 45 size IC engine. A 4000mAH Lipo is good for over 15 minutes flying time.

Cheers

Thanks for that Frank.

Alternatively, you can use Google translate and the page appears in English :)
(or whatever language you prefer)

Hi Alex,

looks great. Try a Graupner Middle Stick or a WIK Jonny or any other Stick typ airplane. You find a lot on outerzone.
