Evolution G62EFI Engine Cancelled

For anyone that was planning on installing the new Evolution G62EFI engine into the new H9 P-51D 60cc Mustang Horrizon Hobby anounced this morning that the Evolution G62EFI engine project is cancelled and will not be brought to market Bad news for folks who have waited for both the 60cc Mustang and G62EFI to be released after so many delays

This is what David Eichstedt from HH has posted in RCU engine thread:

I have some bad news here regarding the 62GXI. After a gut-wrenching process we have decided not to bring it to market. Detailed testing under various operating conditions showed that it would not live up to our expectations for consistency, reliability, and overall ease of operation. Dealer and consumer preorders will be cancelled. The 62GX engine itself will be released in 2015 as a great-running, traditional carbureted version, so watch for an announcement hopefully around late spring. The plus side is that cancelling this project frees up some resources so we can work on bringing a variety of other engines to market. We have lots of other exciting projects in the works!

Bummer ... Thanks for the heads up. I would rather they abort the project than sell us a problem delivery system.

I was thinking about that engine yesterday, wondering how it was doing. Too bad.

To bad, a cool concept. What's the hold up on the 60cc P-51? Are they going to wait for the 62GX release to match it?

No, we're not waiting. Release should be this month. Last I checked the parts we needed were on their way across country via train. We need to swap them out here in IL and then we will be able to ship.

The 60cc Mustang was designed for the 62GXI, but the 62GXI was designed to have the same dimensions as the DA60. Really there's plenty of room to install whatever engine in that size class you want.
