It seems as though there’s a lot of competition in the gas engine market these days, and there are a few names that everyone is familiar with. Some of the big ones are DA, DLE, and 3W – just to name a few. There’s more to the gas engine game than just them! Over the past decade, several smaller companies have sprung up – some have stayed, and some have gone away. But, just because these smaller companies may not be as well known, doesn’t mean they don’t have good products at good prices!
RCGF, a Chinese manufacturer of gasoline engines, designs and manufactures engines specifically for ‘the RC aircraft market. They have a line of gas engines as small as 10cc, all the way up to 120cc! With twin cylinder engines ranging from 21cc to 120cc, they’re bound to have an engine to fill your need.
