Magnum Engines XL 91 RFS Blue R/C 4-Stroke Engine (15cc)
- Product Review (submitted on December 11, 2012):
I have a few Magnum engines, One of the Vegas store managers was a store manager, we were flying one day and I was using a different but one of the top brands of 4 strokes, It always gave me problems with the low end from flight to flight. He asked me to buy the 91, he wanted more flying info first handed, I bought it on sale and did the recommended break in exactly, He wanted to follow everything in the directions. I was flying a Global ultimate Bi-plane and the 46 that I had in it just wasn't getting it, I decided to install this engine in it, (It came out a little tail heavy anyway and this engine balanced it just right) I ran it pretty rich for a few days, we flew every morning. After just about half of a gallon I started leaning it out. Doing it as my 40 years in the hobby taught me. Nose in the air. I demand quick throttle response, smooth throttle response and good idle that I could depend on out of my engines
I fell in love with this engine, I had more power than the Ultimate needed but it was and still is fun. I don't remember when the first Hobby store opened in Las Vegas NV. but this is engine is still in service in the same Plane.
I now have a couple of 52 4-strokes and a few 2 stroke engines none of which I would part with. I don't pay the high price of some of the other engines, Hobby People prices it's engines so the every day flier can buy them and I do not or ever have seen a difference in Magnum in retrospect to the High cost engines. You can"t go wrong with this and the other Magnum engines.. Take the plunge, You'll be happy you did.
