RCV Engines Launch the RCV-90SP & A New Web Site

Due to popular demand, the RCV 90-SP is going to be the newest addition to the RCV Engine Series. The RCV 90-SP is now available! Fitting neatly between the 60 and the 120, it combines RCV - 90SPall of the design and technical achievements of the existing engines and will bridge the gap between the two.

Now there is no reason to use any other 4-stroke engine between a 52 and a 120. The RCV90--SP is currently in prototype stage however will have a similar power output to a conventional poppet valve four stroke of the same capacity, and can be used in any sport or scale model that would normally use a four stroke 90. It can however fit most models with airframes ranging from 70 - 80 - 90.

The compact streamlined shape means that fully cowled installations are that much simpler to arrange, and the 2:1 output gearing means that larger more scale like propellers can be used. You can purchase this engine from all good modelling shops or alternatively you can order direct from RCV using their secure on-line catalogue.
