 I know of the echos and their jd version plus the solo. A little off subject sachs dolmar produced a wankel rotary powered chainsaw as well.

The Wankel never worked out .It seems the exhaust was prone to setting the woods on fire .

The engine design it's self had problems .Early on the sealing rings would fail plus the fact the engine in general was not made as a high torque type design .

They made power as a result of high RPM's much like  turbine . In the car application they were not very friendly regarding gasoline consumption .

Perhaps had the design had been further developed it could or in fact may prove to be something .As far as I know it was pretty much shelved .

Wankel model airplane engines overheat real easy. They also are high rpm low torque. They have not been the most successful venture due to seal problems
