Default Magnum engines

What's up with magnum engines ? Hobby people used to sell four magnum engines . Now, one . A .52 2 stroke a couple 4 strokes. They have very little parts. Is magnum going under, like webra and thunder tiger. Tower doesn't support them either. It seems today you just buy any engine you can and when it wears out. Buy a new one. Unless you have an OS . 46 or 55 where you can get parts from tower hobbies.

You can still get ASP engines which are the same as magnum, go to hobbyking.com
a lot of the glow engine brands are going away, it comes down to electric and gas taking over, gas engines are getting smaller and smaller and light as well, electrics are being pushed in to every corner of are hobby

In the big scheme of things the distributers are killing the lesser brands because the low volume of glow. The big run of cheap glow engines are really gone. Hay day of 90s and early 2000s for cheap engines are over.

Just Engines in the UK carry full parts support for the ASP range but they are pricey.
