Purchased the engine AGM-30 for boran trading seller on eBay. I received the engine today. I did a scan and saw some marks on the end of the cylinder. When tuning the engine noise is iron scraping. This is normal. Yet gave the first match. This box. thank you.

The fact that they are actually allowing folks to lease this machine is enough alone to warrant high marks. I hope it doesn't hurt them by doing so because over time I will own a dozen of the different engines they are leasing. For me it was the only possible way to own a nice new 50 cc engine. Now for the good stuff... The engine came in two days. It is packaged very nicely and is made very well. It started up almost instantly just as soon as fuel reached the carb. It smoothed out quickly and sounds great. There is a very big plus to this machine in addition to what I have mentioned so far.

The price is great too bet the biggie is that it puts out 7 horse power and that is a true statement. None of my others in this size range do so even the DA only puts out 6. SO for less money by half I have a great running machine and for the 40 dollar pmt will have it forever. The fact that they also award you with 50 percent credit towards buying more engines only helps the matter this means next year I will have one of the 30cc engines for nothing. How can you beat that???

Thanks AGM for such a great way to pay and for the quality in your engine.. I will report more after a hundred hours of flight time...

Hello i was looking for another DLE 30 when i saw these on Ebay and placed an order.Engine arrived within two days via DPD who email you when they expect to deliver your item _first class service and on time _ Engine was mounted in a cub that will be used for aerotowing so needs to be reliable and easy to start.No issues starting after a few flicks it was running and despite my fears about the small exhaust the noise levels are far better than most of my 50cc models.

I chose a 20x8 Beila prop and this appears to give more than enough power and at sensible noise levels,i read a few comments on the autochoke being difficult to set up etc but found it simple and foolproof in use , 10 out of 10 for value and service and looking forward to getting the 60cc twin ,
cheers Euan Galloway , ps running a 2s 450 mah lipo on the ignition

Engine was bought from ebay uk and arrived within 48 hrs. I have inspected the engine and found no visible faults. Before mounting the engine was cleaned internally with after run oil and flushed out with petroil @ 30 to 1.The engine was then assembled in my test rig,after connecting the tank and priming the carb the ignition unit was connected to a freshly charged four cell nimh.The choke was applied and the engine fired on the first flick,i then removed the choke and flicked over four times, the engine started and idled thirty seconds or so warm up and it revs freely at around 4 k and back to idle .

I am impressed the motor will now be fitted to a Black horse Katana and (flown in) I don't like to much running on the ground. I know it is early days but so far. well done AGM.

Almost to the end of the break in . This engine runs great. I really like the carb . Set the choke, a couple flips and she fires. Give it a little throttle and a flip or two and it's running. I installed this engine in my new Pilot 3D trainer and couldn't be more pleased with it's performance.
This is my first large scale gas airplane and this engine gives unlimited vertical and will hover on less than half throttle.
Try it , you'll like it !

At first glance out of the box it looks very similar to the DLE 30cc gas motor. As a matter of fact if it didn't have the AGM logo on the case you would think it was. I installed mine on a Hangar 9 1/4 scale cub on floats. The motor comes with everything you need to install and run. The install was straight forward and easy. I flipped the choke on the new style Walbro carb and within 5-6 flips it came to life. I pushed the throttle lever up and the choke lever automatically released. I then flipped it 4-5 times and it fired right up and idled perfect.
Everything spun straight and true with very minimal vibration. I believe the vibration was less than what my DLE 30 produces. It accelerated clean throughout the power-band. This all done straight out of the box. At a price tag of $179.00 shipped to my door I was a little concerned about quality.
I am very pleasantly surprised. I am running it with 91 octane fuel with a 32:1 Klotz mixture. I can't wait until the 60cc model hits the market. I will be first in line to check one out. My local sales rep answered any and all questions I had within minutes of emailing him. It is early in this experience with AGM but so far I am very happy.
Great job AGM
