Magnum XLS .52A-RNV

Two-Stroke R/C Aircraft Engine

This is a Magnum XLS .52A-RNV Two-Stroke R/C Aircraft Engine. The XLS .52A-RNV is a single cylinder, two-cycle engine incorporating ABC (Aluminum piston, Chrome plated Brass sleeve) technology for long life, high power output and easy break-in. A dual needle valve carburetor for precise fuel/airflow metering with an optional rear needle valve assembly is standard.

Your Magnum XLS series engine was designed by expert engineers and built by master craftsmen using only the highest quality materials and CNC machinery. These qualities provide the long life and dependability you have come to expect from an engine of this caliber. Magnum XLS Series are true ABC engines with true hard chrome plated (not nickel) brass cylinder sleeves for longest service life. Front rotor Schneurle porting optimizes power and efficiency of the two-stroke design, and aerospace quality steel ball bearings reduce friction to maximize RPM and power.

Magnum has been bringing you high performance engines at an affordable price for more than 20 years! During that time the line has grown and expanded to offer a full line of 4-stroke and 2-stroke engines. And, all are made from the finest materials on the latest machinery. Plus, you get the added security of a full one-year warranty that protects you from any manufacturing defects and or premature wear (crash damage not covered). For reliability, high quality, and performance the choice is MAGNUM!

power for the buck Review by benpatt
Rating
I own two of the magnum XLS 52,s. I have been a Magnum fan for many years. I love the power that the 52 puts out. I have amazed other flyers when I tell them that I am using the 52 magnum and how it seems to out perform the os 55. I am giving a 3 star rate because while flying my favorite fun fly plane the engine stopped dead in the air. The connecting rod broke from the shaft I have not had this 52 vary long , I took it to hobby people they said that they don't send engines back any more. still I will buy more magnums.

Awesome horsepower Review by BryanW
Rating
Once you get the low speed needle to keep a set, transition becomes good. On an 11x7.5 we race SPAD Das Plas Sticks, and the engine will out run, and out perform the OS 55 on the same airframe. 3 Stars because the bearings suck!! Once you start eating glow plugs, replace with Boca Bearings. Had one engine warrantied because of the bearings came a part and shot the prop off at 14K RPM. It also is a very sloppy engine, blowing raw fuels from about every orifice you can imagine..but on sale, you can get two of these to one OS, and make way more power on bigger props.

After repeated unsuccessful attempts to get the engine to idle and transition to maximum RPM I replace the carburetor and rear needle valve assembly, Part No. 283023. The engine now performs as outlined in the owners manual.

The warranty period expired prior to my use of the engine and no offer to replace the defective parts was made, For this reason my evaluation of the product and its support remains low. (Posted on 7/12/12)
Great bang for the money! Review by Jack
Rating
After doing the break in per the instructions (actually 3 12oz tanks for me) I just went
flying keeping it rich, didn't touch the low speed neddle and wow! reliable and never quits, very decent performance, I have it in a great planes sport mustang with a 11x7 apc and I almost keep up with my buddy who has the same plane but with an OS 55AX! keep in mind mine is stil very rich. I'm using the optional pitts muffler and it is great BUT you need to plug one of the exaust pipes or else you wont have enough back pressure in the tank and that leads to an unresponsive needle valve and lean runs. YOU CAN'T GO WRONG WITH THIS ONE! I have several OS and this one is on par except for the price. Oh and even if it's rich with a 12oz tank I fly 15 minutes and still have plenty of reserve to go around another 2-3 minutes. A+ !! (Posted on 11/1/11)
5* I Recommend it "Great PRICE" Review by LVTRANSPLANT
Rating
Pretty easy to start up by hand, even during the break in process. Runs great and not as messy as other engines around. I installed mine with their Pitts Style muffler and is sounds nice with little to no mess to clean up. (Posted on 10/14/11)
Worst engine I've owned Review by ron@bravoleader.com
Rating
We have contacted Ron with suggestions and if the engine is still not performing to standard, we have asked that he send it in for our service tech to test. Matt

If the rating scale had a less than one star I would use it. I ran the engine on the test stand, in accordance with the instructions pack with engine, using 5 10oz tanks of fuel. Installed the engine in the airframe and spent several hours at the field attempting to finalize the fuel settings. First day unsucessfull. Seconday day after many tries to get the settings set so the engine would remain running and transition from idle to high speed, I attempted a flight. It lasted about 3 minutes and ended in a dead stick landing.The engine will be relaced with one that works. (Posted on 10/9/11)
Best engine I've ever owned Review by Ron
Rating
This motor once tuned properly is awesome. Great power, great for 3D, no worries of a dead stick landing. At full throttle with a 12x4 prop was cranking 13,900 RPM. Love the blue head too. One tip though, take the low speed jet out and use some blue threadlocker on it, reinstall about halfway and let dry. Once it dries and you break it loose with a screwdriver, it will turn a little harder and not wonder in flight. Before I did that, mine was turning by itself in flight and giviing me a headache.

Very nice running, very powerful...nice sound Review by 30nitro
Rating
Great engine! needs a little extra breakin but after that very easy starting...with plenty of power! great for 3D type flying! a little tip; sealup the muffler joints with hi-temp silicone. would buy another! (Posted on 10/21/10)
great engine for the price Review by palmas
Rating
I have these engines on a tucano and a spitfire, and they are powerful with a great sound at high end. I do agree they are a bit messy, but maintenance/cleaning is part of my hobby routine. I have been flying both engines regularly for 2 yrs with no real other issue other than the remote needle valve bracket. I know we are not to crash them nose first, but stuff happens.post crash damage to the same engine required replacing the needle valve bracket twice. great value for the price. keep making them. both my engines run on OSA3 plugs.

Very Strong and Reliable Review by francisco
Rating
At first, I was disappointed with this engine, all my flights always ended with dead sticks, then I re-read the manual and realized that it recommends "hot heat-range glow plug", since then I´m using OS A3 glow plug and WOW!, it is my favourite engine, reliable, consistent and VERY powerfull. And the fuel consumption is the same of my .46 engines, fantastic !!! I love this engine, soon will order another one. (Posted on 8/31/10)
Magnum XLS 52a Review by Simon

The magnum xls 52a engine is a great engine to use. I only encountered one problem, I replaced my #3 plug with a #8 plug. After I replaced the glow plugs the motor fired up and ran like a champ. (Posted on 8/31/10)
great engine Review by Robert
Rating
Bought this engine and had some trouble getting it to start. On my engine it says to start the engine with the needle valve out 2 1/2 turns. I tryed and tryed with no luck to get it to start, so i then turned the needle valve out 1 1/2 turns and the engine fired right up. At first i was worried that this setting may be to lean for break in but after a few seconds i had good white smoke and plenty of extra fuel coming out. I tried to richen the setting up too 2 turns out but the engine started to bog down and die. 1 1/2 -1 3/4 out worked great on my engine for the break in with 2 full tanks ran through it. The other problem i had was the muffler bolts would not stay tight, so I fixed that problem with some good old medium threadlocker from Permatex. Now I love my Magnum XLS 52, IT STARTS EASY, HAS GREAT POWER, GOOD FUEL CONSUMPTION AND I LOVE THE SOUND. The price on this engine was great and I will buy more. I have higher priced engines and they have nothing over this engine except the price. (Posted on 8/31/10)
Good Engine, a bit messy too Review by Wrangler
Rating
I have 2 of these engines, i really like them, powerfull and easy to break In, but i found three problems on both of them.

1-The engine soak the hole engine compartment of fuel residue while it's working.
2-The muffler, since it's a 3 pieces muffler you see the black oil going out the joints.
3- Doesn't like to work cold, Is better that you warm the engine before taking off.

I have another engine brands on my other planes and none of them are messy like this Magnums. Besides that is a very good engine and reliable too. (Posted on 8/19/10)
