No problem, but keeping the size and weight down will be a problem.

Lambert does a good job, 28N from a 9.3oz engine.(verified) Jetcat can't do it... 23N from a 13oz engine.(verified) Jetsmunt can't do it 35N from a 16oz engine.(current values as production is delayed due to unknown issues) + electronics in all cases.

You really need to keep the thrust to weight ratio of the engine close or over 10:1 if the engine is to be useful, specially in the heavier China ARF's

Sure you se planes fly on the P20 but they are underpowerd and won't fly from a grass field. (yes I know it is possible in some cases but also remember only the happy endings are uploaded on youtube.)

For me I cant see how $1300 is resonable for something that just won't cut it...
