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.

• Japanese Walbro Carburetor which is easy to tune and has instant throttle response

• Lightweight and strong CNC lathed prop shaft
• CDI electronic ignition system for easy starting

Mixed 1st impressions

Jan 10, 2022

Like others, silicon everywhere on carb gaskets, why would they?? Cleaned it off completely as it was smeared everywhere! Definitely not a Walbro but a fairly good copy. There is a tiny Rexcel logo on the ignition module so it’s anyones guess what brand it could be but hey for the price, worth a shot. Haven’t started it yet so fingers crossed.

Motor quality seems to be ok, but ignition quit while trying to start. Junk

Aug 21, 2021

Good price but ignition didn't work for more than 10 minutes. So I would say not worth the money.

Got a bad one

Jul 10, 2018

The fittings for the ball bearing were so tight, the bearings were hardly moving, so the crankshaft was getting REALLY hot. Performance was very bad, even less than the RCF 26. After about ten minutes, the ignition died. After about twenty minutes the magnet flew out.
Even after 3 hours of break in, handstarting was impossible.

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 "pumped" from the fuel tank to the carb... I must admit I would like to use my electric starter

Motore 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 .
