    THE best one so far is the OS 1.20AX. Easy to break in, easy to start,very reliable, and a powerhouse.

    The Thunder Tiger Pro .46 is in a class by itself with regard to reliability, value, and user friendliness.

    RE: LIST YOUR FAVORITE TWO CYCLE GLO ENGINES

    Looks like I am the first to put the lowly thought of Magnum on their list.

    Magnum .46, .61, .90 .91Fs. All have been without a problem. For the cost, hard to beat!
    Super Tigre .45, .61 Blue head. I had issues with the .34H. They have more hours then I care to think about.
    Webra .35 is my vote for the best all around heli engine. 5% fuel compared to 30% for other brands of heli engines, I get 2 1/2 gallons for the cost of one 30% gallon.

    Ohhhh yeahhhh

    OS 1.08 FSR , OS .25 FSR, or just about all their FSR's
    OS 80H (long stroke massive torque, before 4-strokes)
    MOKI 1.8, extremely nice, easy hand start, FAI fuel, massive power

    And a great budget sport engine, the K&B 61 preferably with the Perry carb

    TT46 Pro, OS 46FX, Tower Hobbies 46, and Aviastar 46 have done well for me.

    I am suprised at some of these answers. Not going to start a war here, but some of these listed I had hell with. I guess anyone can make a lemon.

    RE: LIST YOUR FAVORITE TWO CYCLE GLO ENGINES

    Super Tigre GS .45 ABC is one of my favorites.

    Also the YS 110

    I really like every OS engine I've owned as well...which is several.

    Moki 1.35, 1.8, 2.1 . Start easy, no nito needed ( read that as cheaper fuel), Extremely reliable (no flame outs in 10 years of using them), great power.

    RE: LIST YOUR FAVORITE TWO CYCLE GLO ENGINES

    Of aeroplane two strokes I currently only own and use OS, MVVS, Super Tiger, ASP/Magnum, AP, Norvel
    I have previously owned Rossi and Tower Hobbies too.

    What`s the best? I really don`t know, all have worked fine and done what they are supposed to do. The ones I use the most are the ASP/Magnums but that is propably because I own several of them in different sizes.
    Some are more powerful (Rossi), others are less expensive (ASP), some are lighter in weight (AP) etc..., all have been reliable and I have yet to wear any of them out, so it all depends on just what I need it to do. I actually have no favourite, I like all my engines and I am certainly not married to any particular brand, so I buy whatever I like.
    Right now I really want a nice little MVVS .15, it is a real powerhouse for it`s size, but also a little heavy.

    RE: LIST YOUR FAVORITE TWO CYCLE GLO ENGINES

    OS 140RX is a stump puller and is almost bulletproof!! Hard to beat! Of the smaller variety, I have to agree with the TT Pro46 as a great value. Runs great and is cheap!!

    RE: LIST YOUR FAVORITE TWO CYCLE GLO ENGINES

    My OS .91fx and 1.60 didn't run well at all. Gave up and sold both of them.

    On the other hand, numerous .25 FX's, .46FX's, .46AX's, and my .61FX were all excellent engines. Never a pealer in the group.

    Other great engines.

    I'll 2nd the Jett .35 barstock
    My Jett .90 purrs from idle through the midrange, and screams on the tuned muffler.
    Supertiger .90 , I've only had one, but probably the nicest running (right off the start) engine I have EVER owned.
    tough to beat the Nelson racing motors, but the Jetts are OHHH, SOO CLOSE
    Can't forget my Cox Conquests .15's neat little screaming motors

    RE: LIST YOUR FAVORITE TWO CYCLE GLO ENGINES

    My best are my OS FSR and SF engines. I have 11; the newest is 22 years old and they all run as great as the day I bought them:

    1 25 FSR
    1 40 FSR ABC
    1 45 FSR ABC
    1 60 FSR ringed
    1 61 FSR ABC (currently in a Sig Kadet Senior)
    2 46 SF ringed
    1 46 SF ABC
    3 61 SF ABC (1 currently in a 20 year old GP Super Sportster, 1 in a BH Trojan T28, 1 in a GP Super Skybolt)

    I also have about 6 pre FSR OS engines that still run fine and 4 OS 46 AX, a 55 AX, a 61 FX, and a 75AX. The only thing I have had to do to an OS engine is clean them and replace gaskets and bearings.

    I also have had good luck with Enya and Fox engines. They just take longer to break in and tune.
