Default E-BAY bargain engine ??

I just picked up a new engine on ebay here in the UK, £22 with delivery , not sure how many $ that is, but i think its a good deal .
The Engine was marked up as a Russian made MDS .21 SAVMA, does anyone know anything about them, and where i could find a manual to download

Good luck with that.

I've ran Russian engines in boats and they had the best quality Piston/Liner I've ever seen. It was a Kalistratov and it ran like a raped ape.

I ran a russian engine (MDS) in a plane many years ago. I ended up replacing the carb with an Enya because of the never enging tuning trouble. After that it was fine. I have heard things have improved since then.

No such thing as a bargain in this hobby. BEWARE.

I will have to disagree on that statement, i got this NOVAROSSI TOP ON ROAD PT21 R1WC PARIS TUNED ENGINE delivered for £31 it`s one hell of a bargain and engine, i`ve been doing RCing of many types and have had many bargains over 20 something years, yes you have to be careful, but dont look a gift horse in the mouth !? if the MDS .21 SAVMA is no good it will make a nice display piece
Bargains are down to how smart and quick you can be

^ Agreed. I was more talking about genuine prices, you can always find a mug somewhere who doesn't know what he's selling.

I got the MDS engine this morning, it looks strongly built , the pull start assembly is all aluminium, and looks better than any of the plastc pull starts i`ve had in the past, I will now have to get the car built and try it out, I dont think it will match the Novarossi, but for the price, i would say it`s a bargain, time will tell
