    There's cheap and then there's throwing money away. I don't mind buying cheap as long as I can physically take it back.
    Good luck with those engine's.

    If it takes buying from a dealer offering good service to make an engine worth buying to you, if you're interested in one, why are you not considering buying from someone like Captmicom? He's repeatedly proven he's willing to work on them - even when he had nothing to do with their sale. Or have I missed your point?

    Agree with what you're saying generally, but not when it comes to an RCGF engine. The engines have great power to weight ratios, and seem to hang right in there regarding durability. With at least 2 good dealers available to pick from, good parts availability, and even wholesale availability for those willing and capable of doing their own service, I think RCGF engines offer a pretty good deal! Among the best maybe? Certainly not throwing your money away anyway....

    Your problem is with Hobby King, not RCGF. Any engine can have issues, new or otherwise, not just RCGF.

    DID YOU USE A CREDIT CARD FOR THIS PURCHASE? IF SO CALL THEM. IF NOT, YOU SCREWED UP - ON A FEW DIFFERENT LEVELS!!!!

    RE: RCGF Engines

    ahicks, Serviceable dealers is what I meant. I have four RCGF's and one on the way. Other than the plug being no good and having to setthe timing, these are great engine's. But whom one buy's from can make all the difference in the world when something is wrong. On one of the 26cc's the thread on the prop shaft was cut bad. BP Hobbies sent me a new one and even covered the shipping, which I was not asking for I just called to verify which one on their site was the right one. I can and usually domy own repair's. But if I was to have one freeze up on the third flip, I would be inclined to return it. With HK that's not a viable option.

    acerc,

    I agree. BP is the other good dealer I was refering to.

    Guys expecting customer service from Hobby King, well they're gamblers, or about to get an education...

    RE: RCGF Engines

    I have the 15CC engine that runs like a top and just fired up my new 20CC. It started on the second flip! Love the RCGF engines! I bought a 17CC made by a different manufacturer. Couldn't get it to run worth a damn and then it blew a hole in the crankcase. Stick with the RCGF's!

    That's the way you have to look at buying from HK. It may work out, it may not.

    For me, I've been pretty lucky with HK, but I always understand that when buying at HK, I am operating under the old adage, "You pays your money, you takes your chances!"

    RE: RCGF Engines

    I was not sucessful in figuring out why my RCGF 45 engine would not run well. I finally gave up and sent it into Joe Nelso for a lookie loo. Maybe he can sort out the problem.

    Sounds like the crankcase is leaking air. The best thing to do is dissasemble the engine and put it back together with good RTV.

    RE: RCGF Engines

    What prop(s) are suggested for the RCGF 20CC? BP Hobbies site gives a rediculous range! 15x6, 16x6, 17x8, 18x8? Which do you feel would be best for engine longevity? I have the engine installed on a 58" bipe. Not sure of the weight but probably around 8 lbs.

    Thanks!

    RE: RCGF Engines

    That is what I am thinking too.... It's one of the older "Henry" 45s. I get it apart as soon as it gets here and get it fixed for him.

    RE: RCGF Engines

    15x6 will give you 9500 rpm on the ground
    16x6 will give you 9000 rpm on the ground
    18x8 should give you about 7600 to maybe 8000 on the ground depending on the prop.

    It is all about whant you want to do with the engine. It is best for the life and performance of the engine to prop it so you don't go much over 9500 rpm unloaded in the air. You can usually count on the engine unloading between 500 to 1000 rpm once it gets in the air again depending on the prop you put on it (i.e. Xoar, Zinger, Master Air screw and so on). I hope this helps some.

    RE: RCGF Engines

    If its the latest 20cc the xoar 17 6 wooden prop gives the best performance with that engine, you should get between 8200 and 8400 with that prop static, bringing the engine right into its power band.
