Maximotor B-4 Engine, In-line 4 Engine
This engine is the last of several that powered Thomas S. Baldwin’s Red Devil III airplane. It is of conventional construction and design; however, because of its large displacement, it develops as much power as some rivals having up to twice as many cylinders.
The Maximotor B-4 was introduced in 1912, and powers such famous types of airplanes as those built by the Wright brothers, Curtiss, Bleriot, and Farman and Antoinette.
