Wow those prices are crazy-low. You can't even convert a weedie to electronic ignition for that kind of money and you still just have a weedie, not a machined crankcase with nice muffler and large bore carb. I have seen engine prices for scooters dirt cheap, it was only a matter of time I guess before the invasion of the import gassers. -Tom

But have you seen the shipping prices???

Maybe it's just to NZ but they seem to want US$200 to ship the 100cc twin by EMS. Hell, I can get a whole DL50 from Peak (also in China) for $370 *including* the EMS shipping.

I wonder if they're pricing them ultra-low to get buyers then building the rest of their margin into the shipping?

It's not actually *that* expensive to ship out of China -- just look at how DealExtreme manages to ship everthing for *free* to all parts of the world and you'll see what I mean.

Yes, I agree that you get a very nice machined and anodized engine case etc, but do you get any real quality.

Several years ago I bought a sweet looking made in Taiwan purple coloured head glow engine that after the first few engine runs the colour disapeared, followed by it's ability to run consistently. Turned out to be a piece of crap that was just nicely packaged.

These engines aren't new.. just another name. Compare the picture to the LS Pro and HHT engines

Will let you do your own research on how powerful the engines are....

G MAN,keep us informed on what you think of this engine after you get it. i just can't figure out how anyone can produce a engine for 200.00 and make any profit on it and have any quality to it? i tell you now i don't give china engines much of a look but for 200.00 this one got looking.
ENJOY!

I am considering the purchase of SV 26cc Gas Engine (maybe two, given shipping is $50?) for my Skyshark FW-190. After I am notified that they are in stock at UH/HC, I will update you with a posting at this forum topic.

Can anyone give the me web sites for LS Pro and HHT engines, which I could not easily find using Google?

I think this is what you are looking for: http://www.lsproengines.com/lspro_004.htm
Prices are much higher but I have really been burned by the likes of Peak Hobbies that I am VERY reluctant to do business with overseas suppliers again (didn't say never...).

Yeah Rich;
you hit the nail on the head, that is the manufacturer, and if you notice that is a aluminum reedbox, they have a tendency to transfer a lot of heat to the carbs. That is the reason Fox,DA,&3W and most others use nylon.

I took a look at the LS Pro 26 engine, which appears identical to the 26 being sold at United Hobbies/Hobby City.

Does anyone have a web link to HHT engines?

Nah, you're kidding.

UH/HC has sure pee'd a lot of people off by selling stuff at cut-throat prices when compared to other retailers and I know that has put immense pressure on some of their suppliers who have threatened to stop supply if they keep undercutting other retailers.

Corona-RC seem to have been one of these who (having entered OEM deals with quite a few distributors) didn't want to see their product being sold by UH/HC at half the price others such as VamPower were charging for them. I gather some of the US OEMs complained to Corona-RC and they complained to UH/HC.

But hey, it's a single world market now and he who has the cheapest prices will always win a good chunk of that market.

Discerning buyers appreciate the difference between *price* and *value* to the extent that even when the same product is being pitched, sometimes the higher price represents the better value.

For example -- if you want a DL50 in the USA, , go to DLUSA.net where you can pick one up for $390. Sure, you might be able to get the same thing *cheaper* from eBay or some other HK-based seller but the *value* you get from DLUSA is much greater because they carry parts, know the product and know the meaning of support and customer-satisfaction.

One only has to check out the vendor forums over at RCG to see that UH/HC has a rather checkered reputation so anyone considering buying one of these SV engines really ought to consider that before laying down their money.

However, I don't believe the claims you've made that they have "evil intentions" :-)

I think we batter never discuss political or con and other related.. I'm afraid before we know the performance of the engine this thread was locked.

I know who you are Mr grpro001, and also I'm platinum member of UH... so batter never con people doing business. I only know LHS are cut-throat. I really wana support LHS but then they price are unbelievable. so batter stop here before this thread locked.

So guys.. I really need some input on this gasser..

Thanks in advance.

Also Sv engine is rated at 3.15kw about 4.2hp. Is this an accuarate figure? all other 50cc out there quote 5hp. How can this engine have less power? Same design porting etc?
