Quote from: Bad Raven on August 17, 2018, 18:24:47 pmJust had a RCGF 20cc petrol engine delivered from HK UK. Good undamaged external packing, plenty of cushioning between it and inner box.Good sturdy undamaged inner box, with plenty of fitted shock absorbing foam inside.and................... one head fin missing completely, broken off part not in bag with engine or in box, also another major head fin bent and part fractured.Therefore :- they packed it like that at the factory and sent it out.Also, the rear mounted carb had a super strong return throttle spring, arm set and locked so the throttle up action would have been a push against the strong return spring towards the crankcase!

Quote from: PDR on September 13, 2018, 14:18:19 pmYes - it's not radio-active (hence "depleted"), but it is rather toxic like several other heavy metals. We had to eliminate it from aircraft because there was a concern about toxic and carcinogenic consequences after a crash.PDR
