Here is a Ryobi 31cc string trimmer
engine that I converted to airplane
usage. On this one I used conversion
parts from Paragon Aero.
Unfortunately they are no longer in
business. I think their conversion parts
were the best in the business. At least
Jag Ltd. is still available.

Here are pictures of my Ryobi engine
mounted on a test stand in my driveway
where I do all my engine testing.
Here it is mounted on my Dynaflite PT-19. It
flew the PT-19 for the first six flights but the
plane was underpowered. I later replaced it
with a US41 engine.
All of my takeoffs involve a runway.

Unfortunately not all of my landings do.
