With the electric you just charge and go....and bar the odd electrical mishap - is so much the now way to go....
So why do I hanker to go through all that grief again - looking longingly at 50cc engines.....
you talking about gas or glow?... glow could be cantankerous for sure, and huge mess. Gassers have so far never been a hassle for me... and there's less equipment needed to be hauled to the field than electrics.
I loved playing with glow engines, very fond memories, but I can't see owning another glow engine again outside of a little weeny one for nostalgia sake (I need to get my OS .11 pylon engine sent up)... electrics or gassers for me. quite awesome.
