I can't relate firsthand experience to you, but Mike Billinton's
review of it appeared in one of the British rags (R/C Model World??)
over a year ago. I've come to trust Mike nearly as much as a hands-on
session when it comes to engine evaluations, and he gave this one good
marks. Compared to other engines from the same isle in the east, it
seems to be a step up from the ASP in both power and quality, and Mike
remarked that it was closing in on the Japanese engines. ASP has
taken some brickbats in this ng over quality issues, but it is hard to
find fault in the power department. An engine that tops it has be
above average. As I recall the TS did particularly well in torquing
heavier prop loads, important if sound level is an issue where you
fly. Doesn't seem like you can go too far wrong. Heck, you would
probably spend 20 bucks for the spinner that comes with it.
