Four strokes, gotta love em! I have had O.S., Magnum, Saito, YS., and I am sure others I can't reacall. If your only option is O.S. or Saito, flip a coin, pick the pretty one, or the one that you can get your hands on faster. You will love both. The power is about the same and they both are well built motors. The Magnums are nice motors, cheaper $$$ but not as much power per CC as the first two. I liked all of my Magnum 4stroke, but hated my Mag. 2 strokes. YS is the BIG $$$$, but the big power too. They can be a bit touchy to tune, and sometimes do not stay in tune. But mine did not give me many problems. I am flying 2 planes with Saito 2.20 four strokes now, and they are very nice, easy to deal with motors. Good luck with your search, and follow the Mfgs break in rules. That should give you many trouble free flights.
