Engine recommendation continued

A slightly different question today. Who makes engines today, who sells
engines *today*? 1/2a, bigger? Who are the manufacturers still in this
business?

The big names that come to my mind are:
OS for everything Norvel for 1/2A up to .25 -- they get good reviews; I even have one but I haven't fired it up. Mecoa has collected most of the 'also rans' under one roof; they have HB, K&B, etc. Fox is still in the business. Saito for 4-strokes.
There are more, but I mostly fly electric...

Glow engine manufacturers:
O.S. Max Thunder Tiger Magnum/ASP/Sanye/Tiger Shark Super Tigre GMS Evolution JBA SK/Kangke Saito MECOA (including K&B, HP, HB, RJL) Enya Novell Aviatronics (Aviastar) Moki/Mark Fox Megatech Cox RCV Rossi Jett Engineering YS Engines Tower Hobbies Webra
This list should include most of the glow engine manufacturers still in business. MDS may still be manufacturing engines, but I don't know of any current distributors for their product. This list does not include gas engine manufacturers.

Thanks everyone for the great response. One more question - I live in a remote area, and hobby shops here are few and far between. Any recommendations for an online supplier of engines and supplies in general?

I'm assuming you live in the US, sorry if the assumption is wrong.

All of the above have provided excellent service for well over a decade. Some even longer.
Good luck.

Oh, sorry - I live in Lebanon, Oregon. There is a hobby shop in Albany, about 10 miles away, but I said "control line" and they gave me dumb looks. There are probably some good ones in Salem, that is about 40 miles. I make it to Portland from time to time, but I prefer mail order/ebay when possible.

Thunder Tiger offers a fairly full range of 2-stroke and 4-stroke glow engines ranging from .07 cu inches to 1.2 cu inches in size. Thunder Tiger engines are very high quality, easy to tune and maintain, and are more economically priced than other premium 2-strokes.
You can find a complete catalog of Thunder Tiger engines along with spare parts at

They offer fast shipping, very good service, and low pricing on Thunder Tiger and Ace Hobby products. Shipping is free for orders over $150.
Happy shopping.

Ed, the owner, is a friend of mine. His focus is on CL Stunt and he carries pretty much the entire Sig and Brodak lines along with some things from other companies making CL equipment. His web site needs to be updated as he is out of Sig Magnum kits. He is very helpful and if you need it is willing to spend the time with you to sort out problems. Bob Furr

Eugene Toy and Hobby. There is a plethora of control line activity in Oregon - as well as the largest C/L competition outside the Nats. That would be the NW Regionals where every C/L event in the book is flown.
