    Default Electric engine

    Hi,
    I am looking for engine recommendations please around 55lbs thrust? I am looking to spend £150- 250 on an 1. I am considering a Jago...which doesn’t seem to be easy to pick up spare parts. A bison very easy to order new parts or a Rhino at the top end of my budget?

    Consider a Watersnake 54lb trust engine, I've used one for 3 years with no issues, and will be within your budget.

    I've had both the Rhino and the Bison. The shaft on the Rhino bent far too easily if knocked on a rock. Once bent it wouldn't adjust for depth anymore. I finished up having to replace the tube. The Bison's composite shaft doesn't suffer from this problem. Of the two I'd pick the Bison all day long.
