I had the option of buying a brand new F150 toyed with the idea about swapping out the current 5 yr old Suzuki Df140 on the RC.
I didn't in the end but don't understand why they are so much cheaper than other brands and to be honest that was one of the reasons why I didn't.
Can anyone in the know explain why? Surely a 150 whether Mercury or one of the other manufacturers is still 150hp? (And I'm not looking to spark a debate about 150 at the prop or fly wheel!)
