Nitro or Gas powered are the “Kings” of the RC airplane world, actual airplanes burn gas and so do these. Most widespread are two cycle excessive RPM engines will sufficient energy to get the job executed twice. Other are gasoline burning and four stroke.
Pro’s: giant scale airframes, longer flight instances, engines as low cost as some batteries(Li-Po), the sound is cool, kits are very low cost, additional energy means extra element on airframe like retractable touchdown gears, Larger frames not as dangerous to fly in gentle winds.
Cons: Noisy, oily, engine upkeep, excessive pace of some means exhausting to manage, bigger take off space, takes up allot extra room in your automotive, difficult construct, want extra assist tools.
