RE: best 4 stroke twin?
Very true. I have a Saito 72 and 100 and they are both excellent. And I agree with you - electric is just not the same. For me, glow engines are part of the hobby.
I had a few episodes of engines quitting on the twin when they were not well broken in. Actually I lost an engine on my maiden flight. I tried flying on one engine with a lot of rudder, decided that was not going to end well, and shut off the running engine and landed like a normal dead stick. That seems to be the best practice.
