Default YZ DZ170 vs Saito FA-200F3 radial

I Have a ESM T-28 It calls for a 180 four stroke but was looking a t the Saito FA200 3 cylinder radial or the YS 170. Has anyone used any of these engines which has more power? I saw on YS website says it will fly an 18 pound plane,but Saitos site is very limited on the specs. I would be gratefull for any help.

I have not had the Saito 200, but have had 3 cylinder 90 and an ASP 400 5 cylinder motor. I found that multi cyl motors do not have the power of a single. The 200 is just 3 cylinders at about .65 in each one, yes? And they do not fire at the same time, so its going to be more like a 150 than a 200. Now that being said, there really is nothing like a round motor in a plane that shouold have one up front. The sound alone is sweeter than ANY single could ever hope to be. Down side is weight. lots of it.

Ya thanks I ended up getting a Saito FG-36 gas four stroke after doing some research. Don't want any more glow engines since gas is all I fly.
