First Test Animation of Radial Engine

The R-380 was Lycoming's first radial engine (according to their website), first sold in 1929. It was used on a variety of notable aircraft from aviation history, including the Boeing Stearman, and Stinson Trimotor. This animation is part of the development for a self directed project in aviation history. This is a work in progress while I continue to research internal components.
