Evolution G62 EFI Project Cancelled!!

For anyone who was waiting for the engine to be released for installation into the new H9 P-51D 60cc Mustang


Here is Horrizon Hobby representative DaviD Eichstedt statement that was posted over in RCU engine thread: Quote

I have some bad news here regarding the 62GXI. After a gut-wrenching process we have decided not to bring it to market. Detailed testing under various operating conditions showed that it would not live up to our expectations for consistency, reliability, and overall ease of operation. Dealer and consumer preorders will be cancelled. The 62GX engine itself will be released in 2015 as a great-running, traditional carbureted version, so watch for an announcement hopefully around late spring. The plus side is that cancelling this project frees up some resources so we can work on bringing a variety of other engines to market. We have lots of other exciting projects in the works!
