A lot of people ask me the progress of the rotorstart backplate lately. I just got the final sample yesterday. Still have to do some tests first. Then start to produce it after we make sure it's durable.

Nice one Dino!!

That moulding looks to be made from sturdy material! (From what I can see from the jpeg!!)

Can't wait!

You guys sure nailed this .28 engine! I put it in my buggy and wow! It is simply amazing, my friend has the same buggy with the sts dragon .21 and we were both very surprised to see that not only does the .28 obviously have way more power but also way more rpm while pulling taller gearing! It is a missile!
thanks

Sorry,we have problem on the rotostart backplate. Another company FLYING-POINT Co, Ltd. claims that they have the patent right of the rotostart backplate. So we can't sell it. That is why the rotostart backplate be delayed. We are talking with the FLYING-POINT Co, Ltd. We need to buy the backplate from them then install on our engines.

Darn!!!

I melted the pullstart cord off my STS28!!!

The good thing is, the pullstart assembly is easily disassembled and im gonna transplant my HPI pullstart cord on it.

Dino, STS should really make the cord longer and put better heat insulation. Just a suggestion
