Daniel's V8 model engine with rotary valves
« on: November 30, 2023, 09:16:23 PM »
Here a video of one of the wonderful creations of Daniel. Which I found on YouTube.

I don't know if he is active on forums like here. Don't want to steal his content, but worth more viewers.

He started with designing, build and test rotary valved single cylinders when he was 16.

I would like to have watched the videos that the awful music made me switch off. I do the same to vids on utube.

There is always a mute button for that :)

Unfortunately, the mute button also stops one hearing something that might be worth listening to, like an engine running or the poster talking.

I agree that the music is annoying and this seems to have been acknowledged by the choice of slightly less annoying music for the later videos . At least he doesn't wave the camera around randomly.
