HB .61 & .61 PDP with muffler

Price & Availability

The HB .61 is a renowned engine for durability and performance. It was used by the US Army to power target drones in the 1980's. Its light weight and high power make it a favorite for many modelers. The patented PDP ports boost the power without increasing fuel consumption. These 4 finger ports are located on the exhaust side of the baffle and introduce an additional fuel charge in a normally dead area of a loop scavenged engine design.
