The first mass produced model airplane engine was designed and built by 16-year old Bill Brown, Jr. His friend, Maxwell Bassett designed model aircraft to test the engines. In 1933, flying with a gas engine, Max won the Mulvihill, Cabin model Stout, and the Moffeft International Trophy because the rules did not yet stipulate the type of power.
