    It took some digging online to find information on this little remote canister stove, which is also marketed as the Ling Yun F-06. It is listed on DX as part number 81810 and sells for $16.20 shipped. (http://dx.com/p/outdoor-camping-mini-portable-gas-stove-81810) The product photos on DX are a bit dated and the model that now ships has an improved fuel vaporization tube that now winds above the burner directly in the flame. This stove looks quite similar to the Bulin BL100-B5 (http://www.cnbulin.com/en/showproduct.asp?id=349&class_id=31), with a larger burner head. Perhaps they are made in the same factory?

    It comes packed in a plain white box with only the stove and a pouch.

    This stove seems to be quite a bargain and seems to be well thought out and constructed. I am able to adjust the blue flames down to a faint simmer quite easily. It is very light weight but is also a little tippy without a pot on the supports due to the fuel hose attachment to the stove leg. Overall I am quite impressed with this stove and look forward to using it and seeing how well it holds up.

    Nice. Seems that with a smaller aperture jet it could also burn liquid fuels.

    Looks like @arnesr hasn't been a regular visitor to CCS since his post over three years ago (last on the site in September last year) so it's not certain you'll get your answer.

    The stove looks like an MSR Windpro II copy, even down to the inverted canister attachment, but your question gets to the root of it - durability.

    There was a recent post on pot rests on a 'copy' stove from China collapsing under repeated cycles of heating up and cooling down. The metallurgy just wasn't right. The stove featured here has pot rests right in the flame ...

    Sorry, I've visited the site from time to time, but haven't logged in recently.

    Honestly I haven't really used the stove much so I can't speak to its durability. Presscall brings up a good point on the pot supports being in the flame. It looks like they redesigned this aspect of the stove, looking at the current product advertised on Dx(link above) and added a spark ignition, price dropped slightly too. Overall, I still think this stove is a great value and has it's niche. The flame isn't very wide, so if you are using a larger pot you will have a hot spot on the bottom.

    I used that stove on several trips in norway (Jotunheimen and Hardangervidda). It is lightweight and solid constructed. I also used it during a weekend trip in Winter. Although it worked bettet than expected, i always would prefer stoves running on gasoline or kero for temperatures below 0 degree.

    I had no problems with durability, i think i used it about 100 times.
