NGH, SV, RCGF, RCG, TURNIGY, etc. The low cost Chinese engines work for the most part, but one needs experience as they may have to fix them, if something is wrong or goes wrong. The main reason they are inexpensive is lack of support and parts availability.
Agree with everything but need to take exception to the comments regarding RCGF. There are 2 US dealers who have bent over backwards to support this line of engines and have managed very well to the best of my knowledge! The beam mounted RCGF 20 will hang right in with a DLE 20 and for that reason is pretty popular among those that have run them, myself included! Don't just take my word for it. Do some homework. I think you'll find there's pretty darn good support available for them!
