The Turnigy 30cc gas engine is an easy to tune, lightweight but strong motor. It has a CNC milled crankcase, CNC lathed crankshaft for smooth running and a computer controlled CDI ignition system that makes starting a breeze
This is no weed-whacker or modified scooter motor, it was built from the ground up to be a competitive R/C gas plane engine, because of this it has an excellent power to weight ratio, giving it the ability to be used for all sorts of reasonably large models.
This engine will suit most planes designed for 25~35cc engines. It is compact, light and will fit inside most cowls designed for these types of engines.
The exciting thing about gas motors such as this one is that they improve with age, giving increased power output. Treated well, these engines will last for many years.

All these engines are tested, tuned and broken in for 7 minutes at the factory and will smell of gasoline when you receive it, this is perfectly normal.
This is my second Turnigy 30 and very pleased with the first one , that is installed in my Balsa USA 1/4 scale DR 1 tri plane Easy to start runs great with no problems .A great little motorCAUTION! LIER ANOUNCMENT! THIS ENGINE DOENST HAVE A GENUINE WALBRO CARB!
VERY HARD TO GET REGULATION!!No reviews about this engine so I had no choice but to go for it and see...
As there was no feedback off here I jumped in with both feet and ordered the engine and it came in two days. Looking at the finish of the item here and what is delivered needs some clarification. They do say it either comes in black or silver. The silver means rough casting which is what I got delivered and I would suspect this is the norm as it costs them a lot less so I do feel the picture shown should be changed as one looks pretty and one does not! That aside other items on the engine are also a bit rough but hell its only going under a cowling anyway so don't worry too much. Looking at the piston through the exhaust port it is not finished too well but the compression seems fine so that's about it so far but when I get it fixed to a test bed I will post my findings here. So far for just over *100 it represents good value for money - but we will see how it starts and runs...
UPATE. Sorry things are a bit slow but we have the grandchildren at the moment... So far the engine has been mounted onto a frame with the fuel tank installed. Some 20 to 1 mix of fuel was put into the tank to see if the Walbro carb would draw up the fuel from the tank. It did. This shows the diaphragm in the carb is working and the crankcase airtight seal is working fine as with no pressure in the crankcase the fuel would not.be "pumped" from the fuel tank to the carb... I must admit I would like to use my electric starterMotore rifinito molto male, pieno di sbavature, materiali apparentemente scadenti. Albero motore piegato gi all'apertura della scatola: l'albero non un corpo unico ma costituito da 2 parti unite da una boccola). Accensione resa impossibile dalla mancata scorrevolezza delle parti. Eccessivo attrito tra pistone e cilindro. Motore mai utilizzato, da buttare. Sono veramente stupito dalla pessima qualit di questo prodotto.
Engine finished very bad , full of burrs, apparently shoddy materials . Crankshaft already bent at the opening of the box: the tree is not a single body but consists of 2 parts joined by a bushing ) . Turning made impossible by lack of smoothness of the parties. Excessive friction between piston and cylinder . Engine ever used to throw. I am truly amazed at the poor quality of this product .it started first time out of the box then the fun started max rpm tuned and steady 1/2 to idle very lumpy i just could not get it to run right any position below 1/2 throttle if you leave for 5-10 seconds it would start miss fireing and interferance with throttle servo after 2 tanks of playing i was thinking electronic ign but by chance i had a new ngk spark plug in the spares box fitted that and all is well my only other concern is its still tight-ish it will not start by hand only via the start but then its instant will see what happens after another 2-3 tanks of full and will updateengine looks good and runs well. i had difficulty starting it until i discovered the semi automatic choke. turn on choke, flip until it sputters, turn off choke, engine starts. really like the cnc cases. runs quiet. lots of power. has front seal. i have also found parts for this engine on the internet. you just have to look around.Very good and cheap enginesuper moteur, la finition est parfaite, il ne reste plus qu'a faire l'essai sur le modelMy engine had not been factory run for any time as it will not start and run on the carby supplied , which is not a genuine Walbro but a HLIC chineese copy. It will run only momentrly only when primed by squirting fuel into the carby . Again I have been ripped of in that it has cost me a day attempting to run the engine and by not receiveing the genuine Walbro carby as advertisedI have had nothing but trouble with this motor. First of all it has never been run. After reading the discussions I cleaned all the sealer from the intake side and checked spark which was good. The motor would not draw fuel so the carb is not usable. I replaced it with a real Walbro and it sucked fuel fine. It was very hard to start and would not run hand proping but fired up with a starter. It ran for 20 seconds and stoped. The ignition magnet for the hall sensor had been thrown out of its mount on the crank! I found another magnet and JB welded it in place. It then started and ran for for 3 minutes with very rich mixture settings until it stopped hard again. The motor was not hot to touch but it was completely frozen up. When I took it apart, both bearings were frozen solid but all other internals were in almost new condition. Upon inspection I found that the rear bearing was so tight in the case that I had to use a torch to get it to release!!I think this was the reason for bearing failure? I cant find an exploded view of the motor so I cant get the front bearing out of the case for replacement. Its frozen also. Cant recomend this motor due to lack of support and information from Hobby King. Buy at your own risk.
