You will find many various opinions on this topic, but suffice it to say that the plane will perform well with everything from a TT Pro 46 all the way up to a Saito 91. Virtually EVERY engine that falls between these two will perform well.

Confused?

IMO the Saito 72 is the perfect Mojo engine. I started with an 82 and thought it was overkill.

The Evolution .46NT is only $89.99 and is a very good engine if you want a 2-stroke.

I wouldn't use the OS FL-70 on a 3D plane. That's a budget 4-stroke, not very high on performance.

YS website: http://www.ysperformance.com/

I would agree with Rumple The YS will smoke the OS, a better match would the YS-63 = OS-91. With a .63 on the MoJo it will be light and power will be insane. The YS is not a cheap motor and if cost is a issue I would buy a magnum(.70 or.91) and save as much as you can, it's not that the OS is a bad motor they just don't pump out the power. Maybe someone at your club has a YS-.63 that you can take a look at and see what it makes for power......Impact

A well broken-in OS 70 Surpass would be the perfect fit and less expensive than YS or Saito. Use the YS 20-20 fuel though!

This is one of the guys at our club. He's got a 72 saito on his mojo 40. He says it flies better than any of his other profiles.
