Default Powerhouse .25-.36 options

I just acquired an outlaw wing for 20 bucks. Never rigged, crashed, etc.
I am looking for suggestions on a .25 to .35 engine.
I am not racing it, so used is fine.
Seems as the os .32 sx is a favorite... also was in heli version as os 32 sx-h.
Anything better? More reliable? Etc.
Translation... I want a good engine. Not junk. Reliable. Used is fine.
Other options?
Thanks

Well a Jett BSE 35 would fly it nicely. $325

But a used MDS 38 at 20 - 30 $ will fly it just as well if not at quite the same speed. { 5% nitro and make slow running adjustments in tiny increments }

I think I am going with a BSE 35 FIRE... what about that?? Is it tuneable? Not race only?

if you are not using it for combat use what you can find but if for combat a .30 is max displacement.

Kind of an old thread, but there is a nice Novarossi .28 or even a .21. Don't forget the Evolution has a .35 or .36 I think. They are pretty strong for the money. The ASP or Magnum .25 XLS is a strong runner. Not the older XL.

Thunder Tiger Pro .36 is a light and powerful engine but no longer in production. If you can get one try it.
