Yes, it looks good, very good. As most people know, I am a big Saito fan (I saw a 57cc Saito flat twin at Rougham today, that was stunningly beautiful and it is probably good that I had no where near enough money to buy it!) but this will certainly be a worthy rival to the FG36.

I haven't seen much on them either, maybe because they are not bad! My father and I are just stepping into petrol with a Wot 4 XL and a 26cc petrol engine (not NGH), should be fun! Roto petrol engines look good too, no experience of them but I held their 25cc two stroke at Rougham today and it was very light. I'm going off topic again, oh dear!

Ive got an NGH 17cc had it for over 12 months and its been faultless, much easier to fit than others in the size range as its conventional engine layout with the carb at the front too

I've got the NGH 35 cc. Runs very well and was very easy to set up. Comes with an extra piston so you can turn thr head round and make it rear exhaust. It also has the option of the usual beam mounts or a radial mount that bolts on the back. Seems very well made and revs quite freely.

This has been in production for about a year and seems to be available in several versions. It doesn’t seem to be as well finished externally as the Saito but I guess it’s the inside that should concern us most.

What about getting JE to convert a 120 or 180 ASP FS to petrol?

The 180 is 30cc I think, so a bt smaller than the NGH FS (but great in a suitable aeroplane I would imagine). Good to hear that the NGH engines have good reviews, but I do like my Saitos! (and Lasers)

Hi I have this engine and i have run this engine a few times on the bench and I am very pleased, easy start and very little mess.
The build quality looks very good and you get everything apart from a silencer, but at this price it is not an issue. I think this will prove to be popular engine given the prices of other petrol 4 strokes so far available.

I ran the engine with a 18x10 g-sonic prop and 25:1 (4%) Klotz RC model lube synthetic, I did put a drop of oil in the rocker cover and crank case before start up just to be curtain (It ran quite cool with this oil).
Here is a couple of vids I took of it's first run if any one interested. it was in my back yard so very echo'y and you can hear them buiding next door too(hamerin) so not from the engine. i hope to have this in a tiger moth turning a 19 or 20 x 6 propsmile

There you go, flight1, sorted now - can I suggest you have a look at the forum guides on inserting text and videos, ta? wink 2

and you can buy the silencer (an ASP FS180 unit with an adaptor) from Just Engines - bargain! Or just buy the engine complete with the silencer from JE for a bit more than HK and have the warm, cosy feeling that you can ring them up if you have any issues. You takes your picks...

I've just bolted one to the front of an Acrowot XL, I hope to get it running in the next couple of days - work and weather permitting!
