Help!
ASP and Evolution Engines

I am new to building ARF nitro airplanes and I am to the point where I need to choose an engine. Which engine maker (ASP or Evolution) should I go with. ASPs as far as I see are cheaper but would it be worth is to spend a little more and get an Evolution?

I've been flying for over 4 years, started with an OS Max, it is now a great motor but it gave me and all the guys at the club a lot of grief while we sorted it out.

I've also got a number of ASP 4 stroke motors and a 2 stroke Magnum (same as ASP). I can't fault the ASP motors, very good for the price.

I've also got 4 Saito motors. So I give all motors a chance and while the Saito and OS motors are better, they cost a lot more money and I'm happy to keep buying ASP when I'm a bit short of cash.

Servos

I think I'll be going with a .52 ASP. I have been very confused with servos as well. What kind of servo will I need for the throttle on the engine?

You can use a micro servo for the throttle, say a hi-tech hs-55 or similar.
