JC EVO 23cc from AeroGasRC

Does anyone have a JC Evo 23cc engine? I would like some feedback about this engine. Also has anyone dealt with aerogasrc.com? I am considering ordering one. A friend of mine has a JC Evo 28cc and he really likes it but the 23cc is made a little different. It shows good power numbers and I haven't really found any comparable engines. I would like some more information about it before I lay down the cash.

You can reed about them over on flying giants . Theres enough info to read there until the cows come home . Some good some bad , which from what I can gather is the fault of the man behind the engines and there lack of Q.C. cheers the pope

By all means read about the company behind this engine over on flying giants. Beware of longevity AND Customer Service before buying.

You can't go wrong with Aerogasrc. I've know a few people that have dealt with them.
They have a 1st class customer service.
Most likely if your going to have any problems with a JC it will be with in the warranty period.

No disrespect to you, but the JC track record has not only stiffed the buyer, but especially the dealers, who have had to "eat" a lot of bad engines and cannibalize for parts when the mfg won't provide the parts for warranty work. I have a couple of JC 28s and I like them, but I know that if I ever need parts they are a throwaway.

On the JC 28 Milton at RC extreme still has some parts and some of the 30 cc parts will interchange. As far as the rest of the line,We have no problem getting parts from the factory,. We carry in stock parts for the 23 through the 120. I cant speak for other dealer of what happened in the past but were not them and we will cover the engine we sell for the two year warranty, parts and labor is 100% free, we only require the customer to pay shipping to and from Aerogasrc.

Every engine we sell is 100% inspected before it is shipped. We make sure everything is in the box including instruction manuals, warranty card with serial number, newest RCEXL ignition module and all hardware.

JC warranty

Does JC charge a service fee for warranty repairs? I have a customer who was charged $50 to repair a defective JC23 EVO II even though it was admitted that there was a bad crank design.

BTW, I stopped selling these engines because JC Engines decided to allow Hobbyking to sell them for near what dealers can get them for. Of course, you won't get any warranty on them other than what Hobbyking will give you.

That is why I do not care about Hobbyking by the time you pay the shipping your with in 20 or 30 bucks of my price and we have free shipping plus you when you have a issue we take care of it there no dealing with china or having to wait a long time to get your engine warranty.

So you have to ask yourself this question is better to save 15.00 and have no chance of warranty on jc engine or spend the extra 20 and be taken care of when you have a issue.

I have one that had an admitted design flaw with the crankshaft. I paid shipping both ways and $50 labor to have it fixed. If the engine had been pre-run, the flaw would have been discovered in the 1st 30 seconds and I would not have been out an additional $83 before it had been installed in the airplane I had bought just for that engine. Oh yes-it was 2 months gone and as result, I have another engine in the intended airplane and it has been doing just fine. The engine is now setting on a shelf awaiting another project.
