I got pretty good flying RC planes awhile back, though I gave it up just before the flying field was converted to yet another golf course. Super Tigre makes much larger engines as well, and are well-regarded. Dedicated control-line engines don't normally have the throttle lever, though.

I have gone to Dollar store foam cut and glued into different models with digital receivers and servos so cheap, you can build an interesting flying model for under $40.00 if you have a transmitter and a 10.00 motor and speed control. And if you crash, you tape it up or build a new one!

No , not a control line version ... ( X15 )
I do fly RC , though 99.9% of it is electric ...

But the opportunity came to buy a X15 TST and it just happen to be a RC version , but I was not going to pass on it because of that . ( easy enough to make it C/L ) .
I do like my 2.5cc engines , and over the last 40 years I have owned quite a few of them . ( Fox - Cox - Rossi - Super Tigre - OPS - Nelson - Taipan - PAW - ED - Webra - DC - MVVS - just to name a few )

I think these are 2016 to 2017 ( Purchased )
