IT'S A WORKHORSE - SC40
Strengths: Easy starting. Reliable. Cheap spares (ASP bits from Just Engines). Quiet, especially with an 11x6 or 7. More than 5% nitro is a waste. Stays in tune.
Weaknesses: Not as powerful as an Irvine or OS (but well adequate). Needs a good wet prime to start then always runs backwards at first unless using a starter. Loses its looks quicker than the more expensive motors.
Overall: Great value. Bought mine second hand for a song and replaced the bearings. Looked like it had stood in a shed for years but is now in DB Sport & Scale Mascot. Its the hack that flies every time I'm at the field and in all weathers.

GOOD VALUE -SC52
Strengths: Well priced, powerful.
Weaknesses: For some reason they don't seem to like being run inverted. After a year or two the O ring seals of the needle valve perish and need replacing. The rear main bearing does give up after about 2 years but its a standard size and much better ones can be bought from bearing specialists.
Overall: Good value for the money.

PERFECT MOTOR (SC46)
Strengths: Good power, very easy starting even just with a chicken stick
Weaknesses: Yet to find one!
Overall: I was skeptical (they are after all very cheap) but it's a good'un. So far started first time every time with a quick flick of the chicken stick. Very powerful too. Brilliant.

POWER HOUSE FOR A PC9
Strengths: Costs 50% less than comparable OS engine. Easy to install and setup. With the money you save you can buy other model things.
Weaknesses: You MUST follow the run in procedure to the letter which is recommended by the vendor or you will damage your engine. Engine bearings seem to be average but are liable to excessive wear and corrode if you do not put after run oil in your engine, if your not flying for a while. Engine casing around the carb where the screws go in could be made from harder alu as it strips thread easily. You hve to use some threadlock on your screws to get the screw to stay screwed into their holes.
Overall: nice cheap OS clone engine, that does what it says on the tin. It`s a great rocket on 5% Nitro fuel, what more can i say. Great value for money and if you look after it, that will last you a long time. This pulls my Seagull models Pilatus PC9 vertical... Just, on a very rich setting. You wont get a better engine for the price but it does have some niggling issues.

ECONOMY POWER
Strengths: Low Cost, a simple but yet adequately made engine with excellent throttle response. Only needs 5% fuel to perform well.
Weaknesses: Not ready for instant use - DON'T be tempted to short circuit the running in process, that ABC liner WILL suffer. Nothing else to mention here, it's been nearly as reliable as an electric motor.
Overall: Nice little power house for sports flying. Mine's in a 40-52 3D/Sports plane and gives it sustained vertical performance at three quarters throttle. Standard silencer is good, too.
