Default Help with engine choice please

Hi guys I am at wits end trying to decide on what engine to run on my dd clipped wing and have such narrowed it down to these economical chices

gms 47 79.99
ttpro 46 114.99
supertiger gs45 abc 99.00
supertiger g51 ring 99.00
0s 46 ax 139.00
rossi ral 40 139.00

these prices are in canadian dollars

assuming all these engines were running the same pipe which one would you guys reccommend for the dd

are the power differences even worth noting I am planning on spinning a 8 8 to 8 10 prop and would like to try and spin about 16 000
or so

also I think this thread could be very informative for new people who are not quite prepared to spend the big bucks on the jett engines and such just yet. but could get there feet wet and hopefully try and hit around 140 or so mph

any comments are welcome and thanxs for you input

I love my 90L. I have a friend that's not interested in speed!? and wants to sell his???!!!!! A 46 I believe. Let me know if you want it and I will contact him.

For speed a Jett is the only way to go.

I have been very impressed with the new OS .46 AX, seems quite a bit more powerfull than the FX counterpart. The 10x7 seems to run VERY fast on this engine.

My favorite economy engine is the TT46 pro. Runs good from the box. Break it in and prop it properly, and you will not be disappointed. Add a tuned muffler to it later on, and it will really come to life. I believe the Thunder Tiger pricing in Canada is fairly good.

The 46AX Dave noted is another healthy engine. Always a good choice.
