Default RE: are Magnum XLS 46 Engine good engines?

Pretty much everything Ken said. I don't use them myself but I fly with several guys that do. One friend had one new mounted on his plane, we tried to fire it and it wouldn't turn over even with the glow plug out and the engine heated?? He just took it back to the hobby shop and they gave him a new engine. Before he walked out he tried to roll it over and it was locked up too. They gave him another engine and it was fine, got back to the field and it started and ran just fine. You either get a good one or not. This could also have been a bad batch that the hobby shop had gotten in for the sale?? If you can, try looking up Kangke, Super Kraft and take a look at the line up of the SK engines, so far I have been very pleased with the SK line. I love there .91 engines.
