Re: The never ending engine thread, East-West

Tom got back to me from MVVS. The fuel injection system is not for the average joe because the computer system is $2799 on top of the price of the engine. It can be programed for the 175 or the 152 and I think the 116 but the system is expensive so these engines can fly at any reasonable altitude for Drones.

Jack got you guys excited for nothing again

Lol. Looks like they should look at how evolution does it. Fuel injected 62cc for under $600. With the engine!!!

No I don't have one coming at the moment but I still want one. I don't know if they are in the hobby shops yet. My turbine took the extra funding away

Dan, correct me if I am wrong. I think the evolution is just FI The mvvs is basically efi

I don't think evolution has a computer system that controls everything. I think the price would go down if they took a chance and built 100 computers at a time not just a few

Who me?


I like trying new stuff. I am still happy with my eme power plants that I have had before the gp's came out. I am extremely happy with the gp's, so trying stuff out has been working so far.
