Question Best 90-size Heli Engine

Hi Everybody -
I am looking for advice regarding choosing the highest quality and most reliable 90-size helicopter engine. I've seen and read magazine and hobby-shop type reviews on O.S. engines. YS engines, Thunder Tiger engines...etc. but I'd really love to hear your experiences.
Now, I know you're going to ask what my application is? i.e. 3D, sport, F3C...etc. I really don't have a preference.
Thx - Tom

@Barracudahockey: Thank you. May I ask if there's a particular O.S. 90-size engine you prefer? There are a number in the market ranging from .91 up to 1.05 that would fit my helicopter. Some are pumped; some not. My only experience with O.S. is with the airplane engines where I've not had the greatest luck. Not sure whether I've just gotten a couple duds or not, but I've never had problems with my Enya's or Super Tigre's.
Here's the list of heli engines I've been looking at. I'm kinda leaning toward the O.S. 105HZ-R DRS. I would really appreciate your (or anybody's) advice:
  • O.S. GT15HZ (gas)
  • O.S. 105HZ-R
  • O.S. 91HZ Ringed
  • O.S. 91HZ-R 3C Speed Red 61F
  • O.S. 91HZ-R 3D Speed Black 61G pumped
  • O.S. 105HZ-R DRS
  • YS 91SRS-Tareq w/ Fuel Injection
Are there other brands I should be looking at? This will be going into a SYNERGY N7
