I personally like the QD25 but my father has both Zenoah(M&D) and QD.They are both good motors and worth every dollar you spend on them.

You are going to get lots of answers here to this question - depends what you are going to do with it.

For stock, I have recently been very impressed with a Sikk motor that my friend bought and we chucked into his Panther. It runs great, and, for the price, had rubber mounts, and a nice throttle linkage that made radio install a breeze.

I run a tuned Zenoah and for higher performance I have so far been very happy with it. Lots of tuners out there and most people have their favourites.

There are lots of petrol engines I have not run either, so you may find some other answers. (I hear that CMB are making a 25cc motor this year too by the way).

So, my choice for stock is Sikk and tuned is Zenoah.

For my money it will depend on what boat and how I intend on running her. There are boats where a QD is probably a good choice - there are others where (in my opinion) a Zenoah might be preferable.

I like QD's but am past the point of the whole QD's are #1 Rah Rah. Sure they are good motors - but there are others that are as good (if not better) in some situations.
