A unique AMPS outdrive with twin propellers. Powered by a motor mounted inside the boat, this geared outdrive has an R/C controlled tilt mechanism to trim the prop angle so a hull can be “flown” at high speed. This particular model has a custom feature added by Buzz. An additional gear in the lower unit drives a second counter-rotating prop.

This outdrive model is on loan from Daniel “Buzz” Brunkow. Mr. Brunkow has a large engine collection and is also a builder of engines and fine wooden models. Several unusual pieces from his collection are currently on display at the Miniature Engineering Craftsmanship Museum in Carlsbad, CA. Mr. Brunkow has also contributed a model wooden Cushman scooter and Chris-Craft Cobra for display.
