This list of pages of articles and information for
model aircraft engines and motors are updated on a regular basis as I scan and post from vintage
modeling magazines and generate new material of my own. Although the terms 'engine' and 'motor'
are used interchangeably these days, the term 'motor' for most of the 20th century referred
to an electric-powered source of mechanical motivation. An 'engine' referred to an internal
combustion source of mechanical motivation. This article from the
MIT website provides an even deeper insight on the difference between
a motor and an engine.
