Thanks for everyones replies,
So let me get this straight,
I'm looking for:

ns12 s1
ns12 s2
ns12 s3
mt12
mr12

Is this correct? Should i not look for the s1, s2?

And fallgirl, i'd be much appreciative if you or others could link me to sites that sell engines for good prices. I've done a bunch of searches but they usually land up with a forum post.
Thanks,
Joe

Again if u are willing to go overseas i think u will get a better price. Harmony models in HK have the best prices for Nova's that i've seen.

Yea that's the site and yes i know it's quite primative, the best way to go is to email him at: [email protected] for price and availability, he will usually reply quite promptly.

Ok, thanks dexter, i emailed him and he did reply quickly.

$210 US
And 20 dollars EMS (i'll assume that's shipping?) If there's a cheaper shipping i'd do that, i'm in no rush.
Thanks for the shop suggestion, that price seems much lower than any other ones.
It's funny there must be a serious mark up on novarossi engines, i've found prices ranging from their 210 up to 339.
When ready that's probably where i'll get it.

Yea $210US sounds about right. EMS (Express mail service) is shipping and it is the bees knees of shipping . Used it a couple of times and my stuff took a max of 3 days to get to oz from Japan. The other good thing about ems is that you can track the progress of your package I do doubt that Harmony would offer a cheaper shipping option in my experience shops only offer ems, the reason i can only assume is that they expect u want the stuff asap.

Hope u get good results Chris

Hey guys and gal, i've still been shopping around for a motor, i've got plenty of time and i'm on a very limited rc budget so i've been looking for a great deal.

Could somebody check this motor on ebay out and tell me what they think?
http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll...category=34062

I'm waiting for the exact model number, but from the way it looks, it's the 1.6 horsepower roar legal model.

Thanks,
Joe

Also if anyone has anything good or bad about sirio to say i'd like to hear it.

Edit: seems this motor is not really worth much new, so i really wouldn't pay more than half what it cost used.
