VVRCRCGF 35RE experiences?

Does anybody have any experience with the VVRCRCGF 35RE engine? I'd like to try one but have read very little on how they actually run. I would be especially interested in power levels, midrange behavior and vibration levels compared to similar engines. I have experience with DLE35, EME35 and DLE30 for comparison. Just wanting to try something new in a scale project.

You guy's that haven't tried a RCGF engine lately shouldn't be so fast to discredit them.I have most of the top players in 60cc engines and RCGF beats them all. In,power, smoothness, burble free midrange and so far just as reliable, and trouble free. They are also tight fitted engines,no china click and the crank and rod are not one unit. I had mine for going on four years with out one issue.So I guess that makes it one of the so called old molds engines and not the newer design.Maybe I just got lucky who knows but I like the two 60's I have better than any other 60 I own.DA,EME,GP,Evolution.

We have had rcgf and vvrc engines both with great results. After the blame game I'll buy neither anymore. I don't know who to believe. I will continue to buy eme and dle

I had more problems with my VVRC RCGF 40 made by whoever engine than I have ever had with all my other engines combined. Ive never bought another product from VVRC or RCGF after that disaster and never will again. Take it for what its worth. Try a DA.

Well, I'm no expert but from what I understand the new Stinger series RCGF is supposedly a much better engine. I did buy a Stinger 15cc directly from RCGF and I'm mounting it in as old Astro Hog. I have yet to run gas through it at this time. Only the future remains to be seen....


If it works for me, that's cool; if not I'll look for another brand. The price was right.

From what I understand is the Stinger series will have chrome lined cylinders and changes in the porting.Along with a boost in power,but time will tell.

that would be nice , anything thee engine guys can do to make engines more powerful , light and transition smoothly is a blessing . 2 strokes aren't a mystery

It's kind of a game they play between the most power possible and still making them reliable enough for the first time user in gas.They tighten up the tolerance in the entire engine. Then that guy that sees how long he can maintain a hover cooks the engine.So it's not that they don't know how, they have to play to the whole audience.
The RCGF 60's I have,one with a six bolt hub and the other newer one with a four.Have the cleanest midrange of any 60 I have run.Kind of reminds me of the DLE55's I use to run.

Making power is the easy part about engine design or modification. The hard part is creating the desirable power level in an easily manageable package that doesn't shake the airframe apart. Add to that turning a prop at an RPM level lower than would be normal for most 2 strokes in our size ranges. Of yes, don't forget also having a decent torque curve so the thing can accelerate that prop load through a wide range of flight conditions while surviving extreme gyroscopic forces in an airframe where the owner may or may not provide for decent cooling. Nothing to it ..........
