2 The cylinders are arranged consecutively in a single plane Architecture configurationIn-line engineThe cylinders are arranged consecutively in a single planeV-engineThe cylinders are arranged in two planes in a V configurationRadial engineThe cylinders are arranged radially in one or more planesOpposed-cylinder (boxer) engineThe cylinders are horizontally opposed
9 A model 5 cylinder radial engine built by Ron Lane. 1850hp Wright R Cyclone 14-cylinder radial. Note that this is effectively two 7 cylinder radials back to back with the rear bank of cylinders being rotated half the cylinder to cylinder spacing.
