Default New from Evolution Engines: EVOE10GX 10cc Gasser!

Gas pilots looking to power their .46- to .60-size models with an engine that is both inexpensive to operate, but extremely easy to tune, look no further! The Evolution® 10GX engine is one of the smallest gas 2-stroke engine available, and it fits into traditional mounting spaces so there is no special installation necessary.
This 10cc engine is special due to the fact that it is extremely small for a gasoline engine and allows modelers who love gasoline power to experience the ease of tuning. Traditional nitromethane fuel systems are far more costly to operate, and leave a great deal more exhaust residue on the model. The 10GX not only offers performance and savings, but it is also very lightweight and perfect for many applications

Gasoline engine lowers operating costs as much as 90%
Standard 40- to 60-size beam mount allows for traditional mounting
Light weight means better performance
Uses a 5% oil mixture with gasoline for less mess at the end of the day
4.8–8.4V ignition case is half the size of traditional ignition cases for more mounting options
Exceptionally broad torque range supports propellor sizes from 11 x 7 up to 13 x 8
Supplied with fuel tubing and filters that handle gasoline and the high operating temperatures of a gasoline engine

Sleepy, Dude, how perfect is that ? !!!!!
A 40 size trainer for the wife to learn on with a reliable gas engine ? SICK !!!!!!!!
No major worries of dead sticks as with glow & I don't have much in the way of electric, and yes, say it again, GAS !!!!!!!
If you hear of any reports, honest ones, keep us posted. I think this would be a great little starter engine for trainers

Excellent! Finally I can think about having a trainer for my son that is not glow or electric.
This is awesome!

Imagine a Mojo 40 with this! You could fly a month on $3.59 worth of gasoline!

Default Nice.

Sweet to see an offering for smaller planes in the gas engine variety!

I have a few gallons of glow fuel to burn up in our family trainer, but this looks promising! Definitely looking at the 11x7 to get some ground clearance on the .40 sized trainer though. Also, remember that since it is a .60 and gas, it will be putting out about the same power as a comparable .40 glow engine...no nitro...

We'll see how much it costs...that will be interesting too!

It is listed at $199. What's up with the vent line? Is that supposed to pressurize the fuel tank?

My guess is that it was cheaper to use an existing glow exhaust than design a new one.

Maybe smoke nipple?

Yes i think so i dont see an external pump and there is not one on the carb just a regulator body...
I dont think 199$ is too bad the regular 60 is 149$ and the have to have an ignition usually about 50$
Also it only takes two gallons of fuel to cover the cost.

That is COOL!!!
If it works good, that will allow a lot of current airplanes to convert to gas.
Two thumbs up!
