So where did the gas engines updates go, the vvrc seem to get good reviews,but no one saying much now. You guys not gone back to ys have you,or have them gas replaced them,nothing left to tell. YS dead,OS dieing and every one flying el now or gas. Just striking flint with steel.

I would avoid VVRC motors, stay with the DA, OS, GP stuff.

I think VVRC is the best of the brands not mentioned by jwilliams.

There has been nothing wrong with my VVRC or DLEs. But, if you’ve got the scratch go with a bigger name, can’t take it with you.....

I'll defend OS gassers. I have one that Cappy peer pressured me into. Hindsight being 20/20 it's a fine engine, just not worth the extra scratch above the "lesser" engines in my opinion. I'm sure some can tell a difference but for may flying style the extra cash is better spent on swervos than big name engines.

Its the how good is good enough,and the lesser engines are catching up fast. Mix in a bit nitro fuel,say 10 percent and give the smell back,be like a well behaved ys swinging big prop. :tu: :tu:

The first non-brand name gas engine I had was a Brillelli 366GT but it was quickly accepted as a viable alternative. And this was before DLE, etc.

I replaced the Brillelli with a brand name and was highly disappointed. I think I just got one with a bad carb but it still left a bad taste in my mouth and I didn't get the red carpet service from the company. A fellow pilot was running an EME so I gave it a try. You had to follow a certain procedure to get it to start but that was my only knock.

To my understanding the VVRC 35 I have coming today (possibly) is an RCGF with a few upgraded components and I'm looking forward to trying it out.

What asbout the little 16cc they have that's new, think it will be close to glow power for a .60-1.20 size plane? Probabaly to heavey for the .60 size though.

Appears to be the same footprint and weight as their 20cc and $10 more. Let alone rear exhaust, not ideal for a slab . (IMO)

There's been a lot of back and forth on Flying Mangina's about the RCGF/VVRC/Stinger names and production. I don't really care who made/makes what, as they're all Chinesium engines. VVRC has been very good about supporting their engines, regardless of which manufacturer in China made them, so I'd have at least some confidence in a VVRC motor. FWIW, I had a VVRC 20cc side exhaust (basically copy of DLE20) about 3 years ago, and initially, it wasn't as strong as my DLE20, but after about 15-20 flights of about 15 minutes, it loosened up nicely and was within 200rpm of my DLE20. Also was recently around a friend's new RCGF60, and it's a horse--stronger than same guy's DLE61--though it vibrates more, apparently. YMMV

I still have about 14 gallons of 30% to burn up. My glow stuff isn't going away any time soon. I do have all my 40 size except for two on electric. I still have a YS70, OS55AX, OS91FX, YS1.60 on airframes.
