Worst engine I've owned Review by [email protected]
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

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.

great engine for the price Review by palmas

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

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
Rating
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

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)
