RC Engines: Gas Vs. Electric

Are you looking at buying an RC motor? In this article will explain the pros and cons of each motor.

Cheaper; Electric motors tend to be much cheaper staying in a very affordable price range for a decent motor. Also since they require charge, you only have to plug it in to an outlet.

Quiter; This isn't always true, however, they are not as loud as most gas motors. this is a nice feature when just going to a park to fly it.

Simpler; For those who do not know, a electric motor is based on the principles of magents using them to spin the prop, wheel, or whatever makes your vehicle go. this means less things to go wrong.

With most good things come bad, so let's go over the cons.

Charging; Although its next to free, it takes time, up to a few hours, to charge the battery needed to power it. This could get annoying if you want to just get out there and fly or drive.

Less powerful; The electric motors are less powerful to its competion. So if you are looking for power, go with the gas motor.

Now let's look at gas motors.

No charge time; Since these types of motors use gas, they require no charge time like an electric motor would.

Power houses; Most gas motors pack a punch. For this reason you more than not see them on a large vehicle.

Cons...

Complicated; These motors tend to be a bit more complicated, thus meaning if it breaks, you would most likely have to have someone else fix it for you, or the other option is to buy a new one. Both of these would be annoying to have to do and your wallet wouldn't be happy either.

Expensive; Although these motor might not cost an arm and a leg, they are definetly not cheap. To get a good motor, you could be looking in the price range of an upwards $150.

With all of these things to consider, I hope you now know which motor you would want to buy based on your needs.
