Appears to be well made and would be great for scale.

I have seen the ROTO, it looks very nice. I would be (perhaps wrongly) concerned myself about spending so much on an engine that doesn't have a large presence in the U.S. at this time. That always concerned me about the beautiful Laser engines, although Proctor has been carrying them for a long time. I haven't checked lately, but I never hear much about Enya or Irvine engines anymore. Saito and OS are safe bets and well established with major distributors.

I love electrics for the smaller planes, but I still have a soft spot for IC engines on the larger models.
