RCV 120 engines

I asked this same question a year ago and didn't get much response .Now with more time gone I hope I with get some feed back.Has anyone out there bought and run the RCV-120?Or know some one who has? If so what do you have to say about it? Good?,Bad? I would like to here them all.I have been pondering getting one for my topflight .60 mustang B model with the malcom bubble canopy.I have a Saito 100 for it now .But this plane is all scale.Full cockpit,sequencing main gear doors, retracting tail wheel with doors,sliding canopy,and I am also making the radiator exit flap work.The only thing I don't like is that the Saito valve covers stick out the bottom. I thought of getting the RCV-120 last year but not enough feed back to convince me to buy one .It sure would keep the scale lines.Plus I could than run a 4-bladed 15" prop.Even more scale .Wouldn't have to put a dummy prop on. Please let me know what you have heard or have experenced.

And for pricing, you pretty well have to get it from the U.S. Canadian suppliers (two that I found who sell it) are still wanting $1.40 to $1.50 on the dollar for them compared to u.s. prices.

I know cuz I want the 90. I have found the 90 for $280 U.S. but they want around $400-450 here.

One year ago I bought the RCV 60 and 90 and both are running very well.
Their need more time for a break-in, but when you fly scale that's not a problem. Their break-in when you fly around. The RCV 120 is sure not different. But in this class '120 and up' I go now with small gasser.
Have fun..........
