Extreme Power Helicopter Model Nitro Engine

REDLINE is a new helicopter engine line from Thunder Tiger. Higher performance and extreme power in a compact-size engine with yet larger displacement and awesome power. The RL-53H is a fantastic nitro powerplant for your 50 class R/C helicopter.

The RL-53H engine features XC2 extreme composite coating with nano-technology from Japan for longer engine life, a special criss-cross pattern etched on the sleeve wall for much lower friction and an oversized heat sink head. These exclusive RL-53H's features deliver much more reliable power and higher torque through the full range of RPM.

The brand-new carb design is mounted on the crankcase with a very effective heat insulator to keep the carb working at stable temperature under all conditions.
