Default FS 70 vs saito 82 with <10% nito

i live in india where nitro is expensive and branded fuel is not available. i need to buy a 4 stroke engine for 3d. But would be running it with no more than 10% nitro.


Does the OS fs 70 outperform the saito 82 with 10% nitro ?

or should i go with the 55ax to be on the safer side? which would work fine even with zero nitro.

Given a 10% nitro level, the Saito 82 will outperform the OS 70. Both are fine engines. If you're looking just for performance and don't care about the advantages of a 4 stroke, the 55AX is a good compromise if you're going to be faced with low or zero nitro levels.

Good luck!
