When it comes to engines, there is hardly anything that comes above OS engines in terms of performance or reliability. One of the oldest companies to get into the making of engines for radio controlled models, OS engines has remained true to its original form and has continued supplying the power stations for models of all varieties. From electric to gas, from 2- to 4- stroke and from airplane to boats, OS engines manufacture all types of engines.
The company began manufacturing its first engine in 1936 and under the brand name Pixie, exported up to 200 models in the first year. By 1955, they began production on their largest selling engine series, the OS MAX. Over the years, manufacturing technology and cheaper material made OS engines lighter, affordable and extremely reliable while still delivering the performance that made them famous in the early days.
OS engines are meant for all types of planes including control line. They have an extremely wide selection of engines in the 2-stroke category, all delivering incredible power in a small package. For aircraft, OS engines in the 4-stroke category are more popular such as the FF-320, the only ringed piston flat-four RC engine in the market today.
When it comes to cars, OS engines have a product line that boasts of the likes of the 30VG engine that is extremely easy to start. If you have a buggy, then there is nothing better than the 28XZ Truggy engine. A larger head and 2-piece construction ensures that there is quicker cooling.
OS engines have around 4 models of engines for RC boats. These range from the 21XM outboard motor, which is height and angle adjustable, and Marine engines that are compatible with almost all types of RC boats and ships.
In the Helicopter range, OS engines have to offer some masterpieces that are absolutely above the competition. The 91 RZ-H rear exhaust ringed helicopter engine is one of those works of art that fits into the canopy of the Hirobo and other scale machines while safely preserving the lines of the helicopter. The blue anodized head also supports rapid cooling of the engine during longer runs.
If you are looking to build your own RC model and are looking for something that is affordable, reliable and one of the best available models around, then you need to look at the wide range of products on offer at OS engines.
