    ASP 1.80 engine results

    I was test running a new ASP 1.80 engine recently and using 5% Omega glow fuel and a Master Airscrew 18x8 prop I was getting it to run at about 1,600 rpms for idle and about 8,000 rpms for top speed. I should do better, but it was new and I didn't want to push it too much yet.

    Here is one of the videos I made running the engine

    Here is the first video I made running the engine for the first time.

    RE: ASP 1.80 engine results

    Should be a real stump puller. Does Hobby King still sell them or the 1.08?

    Thanks,

    Ernie

    Yeah they still sell them. I got mine from HobbyPartz.com though. It cost less with the free shipping from Hobby Partz than what it would have cost coming from HobbyKing.   Yes it does move a lot of air. I had to really lean into the engine test stand with my foot to keep it from taking off.

    Earl, was the one you got from HobbyPartz logoed with directions or was it one of the unlogoed generic engines they have been selling?

    RE: ASP 1.80 engine results

    Very generic, no logo, no brand name, it came in a plastic bag in the shipping box. Hard to get more generic than that. I tried to post pics but for some odd reason the pics were being blocked. Go figure.
    At the time, it was a little cheaper than the brand name version from Hobby King as the shipping from Hong Kong cost more and Hobbypartz has free shipping still.
    of course, just in case I ordered a cylinder and piston from Hobby King though. I can always get a ring from Frank Bowman. Those two parts were pretty cheap and irressistable.

    RE: ASP 1.80 engine results

    I thought HobbyKing shipped from a warehouse in the US? I think somewhere on the west coast thus the shipping is higher in TX. Their shipping charges are too low to be from HongKong.

    RE: ASP 1.80 engine results

    When I look the price, it is a little more for a engine from Hobbypartz than it is from Hobbyking, but Hobbypartz has to ship the engines into their USA warehouse from China. But if you place a minimum order of $50 (if I remember right) then they ship for free. But HobbyKing still charges for shipping from Hong Kong.  So with free shipping the slightly higher price at Hobbypartz can be less than to buy the engine from Hobbyking then.
    Plus you are having it shipped from within the USA and not from Hong Kong, so it arrives faster too without having to cross half the world and languish in customs before getting to you.
    You see a somewhat similar effect on things HobbyKing stages in their USA warehouse too. With the price being more than in Hong Kong.
