I just came across this site:

http://www.gyroscope.com/catalog.asp?catalog=1015

Their 4-cylinder is amazing, but all these little engines are quite charming. They have a neat modern look about them. The piezo ignition system also sounds quite nifty.

It would be fun to try to duplicate one of these!

Best,

I did a little more sniffing around. These are evidently made by a firm called "Maier". This site is selling component parts, including the piezo igniter assembly:

I do like this piezo concept. Also, there is a nifty video of the 4-cylinder swashplate motor running on the gyro site.

Thanks for spotting the manuals, PT.

Best,
