Guest Posted November 28, 2013 Share Posted November 28, 2013 The new engine The EOS 100 is a brand new engine made by new start-up from Austria. Check their website for more info here: http://www.eos-engine.com/. The tech specs sound very promising: as powerful as the Polini 100 while lighter than the top80, with clutch and forced cooling. EOS100-2.jpg[/attachment] Quality and finish Nice finish, All CNC machined. Well designed - it is obvious they did a very good job in reducing weight by milling off all unnecessary material. DSC_0879_1 Some parts look like toys. The DLE carb is much smaller than the Walbro used on Moster. The connector for fuel line looks literally funny - i guess it fits a 4 mm fuel hose. I had to adapt it for 6 mm fuel lines that are standard for paramotors. The pulse hose is sooo tiny. The rubber mounts are half the size of Moster's. The airbox is ehm... different. The motor is just different. They have engineered everything from scratch without making shortcuts or sticking to common patterns (most engine manufacturers actually use the same Italian pistons and cylinder heads). The EOS pistons are from Japan, the cylinder head from Taiwan, different carb, different airbox, clutch... These guys did everything to keep the weight low. Getting 20.5 HP from 100ccm is nothing special. But keeping it at 9.8 kg is. Yes, the engine is very light. Its not just numbers, you can really feel the difference. The SCOUT is light even with the Moster. With the EOS engine even litgher. Quality and finish The build quality seems legit. Nice finish, All CNC machined. Well designed - it is obvious they did a very good job in reducing weight by milling off all unnecessary material. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
