Default What engine for Patriot XL

Its early morning and I cant sleep[&o]...so off to the basement I go. Building a Great Planes Patriot XL, and would like some information on what engine I should put in it.
Possible engines I am looking at are the OS 95AX....or the OS91FX.....or even the Supertigre G90. I have had good luck with Supertigres in the past, but the pricing is lower than the others. So what is the difference between these engines? I will also be using a Jett Muffler on which engine you choose for me. Budget is limited however is will if I need too!

I don't know anything about .90s, but what I do know is the World is full of guys who will buy a high dollar engine, never run it, then sell it on the internet. If you put in some research time, your budget might surprise you for what you find. I'll bet all 3 of your engine choices are up for bid somewhere. A lot of times they throw in extras like mounts and props.

Thanks for the advise, and I'll look into it as soon as I get some specs from other people here on the forum.

Depending on your budget, a Jett 90l is what I used in mine, originally I had a OS 91FX w/ tuned pipe in it but the Jett Rocks in comparison.

i would lean to the budget engine with the higher rpm capabilities. maybe even whether it will run better on a pipe.

Have you thought about the Magnum 91 XLS with a Jett muffler? I read is a pretty good combo.

Yes,

just specify the engine when ordering. Although the Jett stream for the 91 engines is dual-drilled anyway - has both Jett/ST bolt pattern and OS compatible pattern.
