Default Little hit'n'miss from China

Already had one of the gov weights fly off but still fun anyway.

I ordered a blue one from Banggood in January. Still waiting. Yours runs nice.

Did the weight break off or lose a pin? Sounds good. Looks like the newer style engine.
I have had 3 of these back ordered and automatically refunded in the past year or so. Thanks for sharing

Myfordboy just put up a demo of a slightly different model that he also got off of Banggood. Then he gave it away. I suspect he gave it away because Banggood gave it to him. They've been pushing free goods to a number of youtube creators, probably for cheap advertising

I ordered mine when I saw the myfordboy video. Banggood contacted me after a week and offered this "upgraded version" because of the back order time they were expecting.

The screw that held one of the weights came out after a few minutes of running. Killed my springs and who knows where the screw went. Bought a screw asst and found a spring in my junk. I just used one spring under the screws that held the weights to slow it down some.

I cancelled my order for the blue one and ordered the upgraded version per Banggood’s recommendation and have been waiting over a month now.

Ive ordered, they cancelled 3 different times starting in Oct 13,2018. I just checked they mailed it Friday. It is the older style, my new style is still backordered from March 6, 2019. The one they're sending was reordered on Feb 9,2019. And I thought I was slow. Good luck

These little engines might be a great idea as I get to old to lift and load the big engines! Just set a couple of these in the seat and head to the show!

If you have patience, I’m pretty sure you can’t buy one for any less than what they sell for on Banggood.
