    CO2 fizzy drinks cylinders? The old CO2 engines used to get reloaded from 'sparklets' mini-cylinders...

    Small compressors as in car tyre pumps would do it but the drain on the battery would be quite high. A small compressed air cylinder with a regulator could work, but where you would be able to get one I don't know.
    Cheers Colin.

    Hello All
    Thinking out loud when I research steam engines it seams after they are built or after repair they are tested on an air compressor is it possible to set up a model RC boat to run a steam engine with air if so would it be by compressor or a compressed air bottle .
    If by compressor is there a small enough unit to go into a boat and be battery operated any ideas .
