Default Rad Cam engine

Does anyone have any new information on Mark Bierle's ( of Earthstar
Aircraft)
Rad Cam engine? All the web searches mention that the engine was at
Sun-n-Fun 2003 and Airventure 2003. Was he at either of those fly-ins
this year? Thanks

Mark has dropped out of site. He signed a development license for my engine patents in 2000. He altered my design slightly. I was very excited about the rapid progress he made early on. The engine runs very well. He did however have some problems with the cam peening at the transitions of its machined arcs. He defined the cam with only four or five radii per quadrant. There was a slight faceting at these transition point. The last time I talked to him was in reference to that problem. I have not heard from him for over three years now. Thanks for your interest. I am working on the next generation engine design and would love to hear from him.

Up date... I have been working with a group to build several new engines, sans ignition and carburetion which we will sell at cost to beta testers. By doing this we hope to quickly improve the performance. The base design has proven to be very smooth, light and robust. We are 12 to 18 months out with this plan. Jim Duncalf…

Any updates on these new powerplants? Photos?
