Some Ideas Please

I am looking for the most powerful yet reliable engine in the two stroke 1.20 size. Must be 2 stroke because of weight considerations.

I'd recomend a Thunder Tiger 120. I had one a few years back , performed flawlessly and put my Webra 120 to shame -power wise. Good price to boot!

If u want even more go - a Moki 135 is a great engine too, same size as a 120

I have a Moki 1.35.Very easy to start,very reliable and very powerful in a 1.20 size package.Swings a 17/6 APC@9400 rpm with a bisson pitts style muffler.One or two flips and it's running.

I really don't have any experiance with engines that size but I would imagine that a sport jett 1.20 would be up there. As long as your not worried about the price. The website says it turns a 16X8 at 9,500 rpm and weighs 31.5oz with muffler. Sounds good to me

MVVS makes a 1.20 sized engine I believe. I've heard MVVS are extremely strong engines although I personally have no experience with them. They are rather pricey as well. Might be worth having a look at.

Hi Propworm, We've been using a TT 120 in our F-15. It has at least 200 flights on it. We're turning 13,000 rpm, and brgs are original. It has a full tuned pipe on it. When we bought it I felt it was the most power for the weight. Just don't run higher than 10% nitro- it will get too hot! We know!
It depends a bit what plane it's going into. Do you want speed or lugging power? rcjetguy
no such thing as too fast!
