I have a OS 15 CV-MX in my Hydroplane. Great little engine, very reliable!

I know of a guy that got a K&B .18 for his Dumas Lil' Rascal. He said that it's a slug. The O.S.'s would be better choices.

I have used both OS engines, they are very reliable engines, easy to tune.

Most Kyosho engines are not high HP or revving. They are OK for sport running. Probably in the neighborhood of less than 1 HP and under 20,000 RPM.
