Default RCV four strokes

Any one out there use the RCV engines. I am thinking about purchasing a 90 size four stroke, and I like the conpact design. How do they run, will they run the same props as other four stokes of the same size. It seems like there would be less parts to fail. I currently have a FS 48 surpass and a Magnum XL 70, and I am happy with them. From reading the different discussions I have noticed that Saito if favored. Any input would be a help.

I have the .58 CD and the .90 SP, both are great, I'll most likely get the .91 CD soon.

My 58 runs real good. Not a power house but produces the exact power it's advertised to produce.

The CD series turns props that are comparable to other 4 strokes of the same size. The SP series turn much larger props due to an internal gear ratio of 2:1. I have the 90SP which will go into the TopFlite Spitfire I am building. It will turn a 15" four blade prop.
I've run my 90SP on the bench and am very happy with the way it runs. It does have a lot of vibration, and I'll make it a habit to do thorough checks before each flight. I've read that the CD series tend to put out a lot of oil through the crank case breather. I've see pictures where guys have made oil capture containers from 35mm film canisters in order to keep their planes cleaner.

Thanks for the info. I think I will check out some of the other clubs in the area and see if any one has this type of engine before I comitt to it. I have been reading some of the past discussions and see alot of good things written about the saito 100. I[m kind of leading that way.
