There is no ceramic content in Nikasil coating. Could be a translation thing too.

Exactly, I would think something was lost in the translation. True Nikasil is much more expensive than other flame coatings

Nice looking engines, but I agree, skip the cylinder painting. If for no other reason, it will eventually flake off and look bad.

Nickel Silicon Carbide coatings are a form of ceramic. Nikasil is one of those coatings (which is electo-deposited). Taiwan certainly has got the technology to do that coating (Isn't that where some of DA's cylinders are made?).
Lycoming and Continental Aircraft engines have certified Nikasil for their engines.

Anyone noticed how many RC engine related companies seem to be emerging from Taiwan instead of "Old china" recently?

Only old man time wil tell whether these are good, bad, overpriced, underpowered etc. I vote for one going to Antique for his proposed test. If anyone can quickly evaluate a weakness in a product - Ralph would be one of them.

Hi
you are correct,Coating technology in Taiwan was teching by Japanese,So the coating technology was very good in Taiwan ,what ever ceramic coating or Nikasil.
Not only good at coating technology,
The factory who manfactory piston for GP engine was best piston manfactory in Taiwan which build for HONDA,YAMAHA,SYM,SUZUKI,HTUNDA,ROTAX.....Ect
So .......As I know some "TOP" RC gas engine (piston,ring and cylinder,)was manfactory in Taiwan.
