Default Soft or Hard mount 4-stroke?

I have a saito 150 and was wondering if this should be soft mounted or if a regular nylon mount would be appropriate?

It's your pleasure? Either way would be OK. However, if you so choose to use a soft mount, use one that is firmer. A too soft mount can cause more problems than it helps.

I've asked the "soft mount" question a couple times. My experience is that if you go cheap, the mount will have poor performance and durability. If you want to spend the money for a Hyde or similar mount, it will probably work great.

I used to be very interested in soft mounting. Now, I don't bother.

Almost all of the pattern fliers use nose rings in conjunction with the soft mounts, to minimize the amount of bouncing around the engines do at lower RPM.
