I've always said that as well Jeff.....build the quality, price it right and you are king the hill!!

Something they don't grasp too well!

Instead we end up paying too much for the well known quality brands but can get something that's decent at a bargain but are never really sure of it's longevity....although they are much..much better than previous years!

Of course, there's none of our money used in the production phase,, as they use it for R&D!!

To bad because eventually people learn and move on to the better products. I did anyways.

I do think they're cool planes.
Best not Jack.
Or we all will need to go through the 4 engine selections! (ha-ha) With all the offerings from EME, DLE, and the like.
I did get a coffee, but the dog won't go out in this cold!

A Wilga is one of the high wing planes on my bucket list. Just not from Hobby King. But if the engine and the plane has the same lifespan than giver.

Jeff there is a market, a large market. These engines have a large place in this hobby. They are hobby grade in my opinion, which is where most modellers are (should be). There is also a very competitive aspect of our hobby/sport at the FAI level. Where not many hobby grade engines "Compete".
So lets all build a toy airplane, and go eat some hot dogs.
