Default RE: are Magnum XLS 46 Engine good engines?

You're not taking a risk by buying a Magnum engine. They're a terrific engine and the XLS .46A is powerful, reliable, quick to break in, and easy to tune.

Because Magnum engines are made in mainland China rather than Taiwan or Japan, the quality control isn't quite as consistent as other brands. Global Hobby, the distributor for Magnum engines, offers very good customer service and warranty support. You might have a slightly better chance of needing warranty support than with a more expensive brand of engine, but Global will take good care of you if the need arises.

You can expect many years of very good service out of your Magnum XLS .46A two stroke.
