Default RE: SYSSA 30CC GAS MADE IN USA


ORIGINAL: Rcpilot

$429 for a 30cc engine?

Good luck with that...............

If this turns out to be a quality engine, equipped as shown with rear exhaust muffler, rear mounted carb and standoffs. If it runs well with power equal to or better than an OS 160 glo engine .... I would buy one in a heartbeat!

We're so spoiled with all the cheap (and sometimes junky) 50 cc engines on the market these days, we lose sight that there are other applications for quality engines of smaller displacement .... even if they cost more. There are many scale applications out there for warbirds and other planes with smaller cowls that just don't lend themselves to many of the current crop of 26 or similar sized engines. You usually have to cut the heck out of the cowl to fit either a giant side mounted muffler or to allow the carb to stick out the side .... or in most cases ... both. For many of us, 4 strokes have been a more practical solution in these smaller airplanes. Maybe this new 30 will be our savior as we'd really rather run gas if only the right engine was available. Cost be damned .....

$429 is still cheaper than a Saito 180!
