Default New gas engine!

This one is very interesting. I have not compared weight but It might be a good choice for some smaller warbirds. I am contemplating this for my Pica FW 190. http://www.troybuiltmodels.com/items/RCSSV17-H.html

That's been out for awhile now. I have yet to get my hands on one, but it seems like an nice set up for .60 size birds. The price ain't bad when compared to the G-20.
I wish some one would design something like that with a rear carb and exhaust at that price range.

Same power as a .91 4 stroke. Might be interesting in that FW 190. If you go that route please let us know how it works out.

Well, I guess it was new to me. It weighs a few ounces more than a Saito 100. I am really attracted to being able to use gas. Also as warbirds go, nose weight is generally needed. Maybe not so much with my FW 190 but we shall see.

Here is one even smaller with the carb in the rear.
