Rotomotor 35FS, 35cc four stroke single gasoline engine with electronic ignition
Now is the time to take advantage of our great intro pricing!
Troy Built Models has selected the Rotomotor 35FS single cylinder four stroke engine to introduce customers to the Rotomotor experience.
We feel very confident you will agree this is the finest single cylinder four stroke gasoline model aircraft engine available.
The goal for the new 35FS four stroke engine was simple.
It must be easy to start, develop very good power, be fuel efficient, operate quietly and be extremely reliable.
Well, they succeeded!
Just look at the exploded parts diagram and you will see there is an extraordinary amount of technology packed into this little gem of an engine.
It truly belies its simple lines and clean exterior!
The Roto 35 FS is very powerful and will easily surprise you. It will swing a 20x10 two blade prop at 6000rpm generating approximately 17lbs of thrust.**
We recommend the Roto 35 FS for any 1.20 plus sized warbird up to 20lbs or in 25-27% aerobatic aircraft up to 15lbs.
Doing all of this while providing extreme fuel economy with very quiet operation makes it a "no brainer" solution to its thirsty and noisy two stroke cousins.
The supplied standard header will offer minimal noise levels by itself, but if you really want to quiet the engine down we recommend using the optional FS muffler.
We recommend thoroughly reading the manual as supplied under the "Manuals" tab. If you have any further questions please do not hesitate to give us a call.
This is a very exciting introduction to our engine lineup!

WARNING - Gasoline and Turbine powered R/C model aircraft are not manufactured to withstand unlimited G's. Any R/C model aircraft can fail, be it a wing folding up or a fuselage breaking in half under too high of a load. Just as any full size aircraft, model R/C aircraft have a maximum G rating. Because you are not in the plane flying it and experiencing the G's and reading the G-meter, it is more difficult to judge the G's on the aircraft, and it is very easy to exceed the limits of the aircraft. Understand that if you perform a snap roll, parachute, wall, blender, knife edge loop, or pull hard on the elevator at almost any speed, you can be putting in excess of 15 G's, even in excess of 30 G's, and most aircraft can only designed to take 10-12 G's. If you perform any violent maneuver, you can break your plane. When I perform hard maneuvers, especially for the first time on an airframe, I am prepared for a failure and am prepared for it as best I can be. This mainly includes performing the maneuver far enough away from spectators that in event of a failure that I am not endangering others. In addition, be prepared for the manufacturer to not pay for a new airframe which is broken during flight. It is common practice for any manufacturer to not replace an airframe which breaks in the air or upon landing. I have only seen manufacturers replace airframes when they have received many of the same failures and the manufacturer determines that there was a design or manufacturing error. If you break an airframe, and you are the only one to do so, then it is probably not the fault of the manufacturer. Please fly safely, and avoid full throttle operation other than at low airspeeds.
R/C model jets, warbirds, aerobatic planes and UAV Unmanned Aerial Vehicles to name a few are not
a toy! If misused, it can cause serious bodily harm and property damage. Fly only in open areas, and AMA (Academy of Model Aeronautics) approved flying sites. Follow all manufacturer instructions included with your plane, radio, servo's, batteries and engine. Aircraft manufacturers guarantees each kit to be free from defects in both material and workmanship at the date of purchase. This warranty does not cover any component assembled by the customer. All parts of high stress must be inspected and reinforced if necessary by a competent builder. Some parts should be glued again. High stress areas such as firewalls, motor boxes, wing mounts, landing gear mounts, etc., are areas of high concern. Seek help if necessary. In not case shall TBM be liable for the cost of any product it offers which is not manufactured by TBM. The liability to the manufacturer cannot exceed the original cost of the purchased item. Further, TBM reserves the right to change or modify this warranty without notice. In that TBM has no control over the final assembly or materials used for final assembly, no liability shall be assumed nor accepted for any damage resulting from the use by the user of the final user-assembled product. By the act of using the user assembled product, the user accepts all resulting liability. The kit manufacturers have provided you with a top quality, thoroughly tested kit and instructions, but ultimately the quality and fly ability of your finished model depends on how you build it; therefore, we cannot in any way guarantee the performance of your completed model, and no representations are expressed or implied as to the performance or safety of your completed model. It is the user's responsibility to inspect each component for worthiness.
