Magnum Engines XLS 52 Two Stroke RC Engine (RNV) (8.5cc)

Product Review (submitted on October 9, 2011):
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.
